Were you the victim of a burglary between January 2012 and July 2013?
If you were and you live somewhere between Mill Creek, Washington and
Tigard, Oregon we may have property that was stolen from your
Detectives from the Sammamish Police Department and the King County
Sheriff's Office are trying to find the owners of stolen property that
was recovered last July after the arrest of a couple who admitted to
committing dozens of burglaries between Tigard, Oregon and Mill Creek,
Krystal Sweetman, 27 of Puyallup and Steven Tipton, 27 of Tacoma were
arrested last July after an investigation that revealed the couple had
committed over 80 residential burglaries between January 2012 and July
2013. The couple sold many of the stolen items at area coin shops netting
over $346,000 in the 18 month crime spree.
Detectives also discovered that the pair had a storage unit that was
packed with property taken from the burglaries. Many of the stolen
items from the storage unit have not been claimed and detectives are
hoping to reunite victims with their property.
In January, Sweetman pled guilty to multiple charges and was sentenced
to 36 months in prison and 36 months in community custody. Tipton is
expected to plead later this month.
Detectives have photographed the unclaimed property and have provided
a link to photos for the public to view. Detectives are asking anyone
who was the victim of a burglary between January, 2012 and July, 2013
to look at the photos to see if any of the property belongs to you.
If you have questions please call 804-885-KCSO. Do not call
other police department numbers. If you see property that you believe
belongs to you follow the instructions on the link. You will be asked to
provide the case number of your burglary and will need to provide some
proof the item is yours.
