Vehicle stolen from Kirkland motel found among ammo, firearms and jewels

A Snohomish County task force made some big arrests after police tracked a stolen vehicle to its thieves.

According to The Herald, the vehicle was stolen from a Kirkland motel earlier this week.

The black 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe's GPS led investigators to an Everett home where they found two stolen cars, 14 firearms (11 confirmed stolen), 3,000 rounds of ammunition, precious jewels and $50,000 worth of power tools.

The Herald reports a 30-year-old man and his 23-year-old girlfriend were in the Tahoe as Snohomish County sheriff's deputies located it at the suspect's grandmother's house.

The suspects were arrested and taken to Snohomish County Jail on Thursday.
