The suspect was wanting to pay a large amount of cash to underage females for their underwear, he even left his phone number for contact. A Detective made contact with the suspect – a 42-year old male from Burien – who had agreed to meet with the Detective, who he believed was a 14-year old girl. The suspect drove to meet with the detective posing as a 14-year old girl, and was arrested by Police.

Located in the suspect’s vehicle was a handgun, machete, large amount of cash, gunny sacks, tarp, hatchet and duct tape.

“Great job by KCSO Detectives, to arrest a suspected pedophile and possibly prevent a murder,” Sgt. Ryan Abbott said. “The suspect was booked into King County Jail for investigation of communicating sex abuse of a minor and investigation of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes.”
