Unusual arrest after driver notices car in front of him is his

Car theft victim follows, confronts armed suspect.

The Federal Way Police Department had an unusual arrest Wednesday morning.

Some time last week, a male victim’s car was stolen in Pierce County. While the man was driving through Federal Way on Wednesday, he called 911 when he realized the car he was driving behind was his stolen car, said Commander Kurt Schwan.

While on the phone with a 911 call receiver, the male allegedly followed his stolen car and ended up confronting the suspect when the two cars pulled over despite warnings from the call receiver not to.

During the altercation, the suspect was apparently weilding what appeared to be a lawn chair in a green cover, and was pointing it at the victim.

The suspect later fled, Schwan said.

When police arrived, they arrested the suspect and uncovered what appeared to be stolen merchandise in the car, as well as a loaded shotgun in the green lawn chair bag and a mask of a U.S president.
