Seattle Burglary, Women Burglars, Seattle Crime

I documented a suspicious vehicle on 3-23-2012 with 2 women that were trying to rob my neighbor. I got the plate and took 13 pictures of them. Police say they are persons of interest. I knew it was weird when they parked way back, and one of them walked to my neighbors door, while the other one stayed at back of vehicle with the trunk popped. One in back was dressed all black. Woman burglar told the neighbor thru the door (she wouldn't open the door) that they were looking for their puppy. I got really good photos of them and the car.

Looks like back "opera" window is knocked out.

License Plate: Washington AAD4520
Occurred at 288th & Military Rd area
Date/Time: 3-23-12 @ 1:33pm
2 caucasian women. One had brown hair up in a pony tail. Other had long black hair.
One woman was a little older, maybe in late 30's. The other was younger, perhaps 18-early 20's.

One of the girl burglars is waiting behind the car, while her friend is at my neighbors door. Neighbor would not open the door, and didn't fall for the "puppy" story. This girl is wearing a brand of clothing called Wiz Khalif. This is in a Seattle neighborhood in the South Sound (Federal Way Washington).

Notice on pictures- trunk is popped.
Police told neighbor she would have been robbed if she had not been home.

When they left, they drove through the neighborhood.

They were captured. Read News here

Received posting from a reader. Here is his YouTube Video of a Woman Thief that stole one of their packages from their home and she sees the camera. This does look like the dark haired woman thief I saw.



  1. Remember this back on 3-23-12? Police officer from Federal Way WA came to see me today (6/21/12) and let me know they were able to arrest and prosecute both women from these pictures. He said the pictures were crucial as they showed the license plate and a bulletin went out using my pictures. Several agencies used them to track these ladies. ATF also involved. Busted.


    1. Captured -

  2. Their names, I need to know their names so I can ensure they're getting the jail time they need, AND research into where their friends and family live to know where they will be when they get out, if they even get ANY jail time! FWPD needs to man-up and stop protecting them, and release their identities!!

    1. Try doing an FOIA request. I also heard there were other agencies involved, as that is how they were captured by distributing these pictures as part of a BOLO (Be on the Look Out).


    2. I suspect other people are involved and they are in the process of trying to get them too before they release all of the info. That is what normally happens in an investigation. It takes quite a bit of time and luck.

    3. Names: Amanda W. Macklin & Jordan Newkirk (sisters)
