According to Seattle Police, at approximately 3 pm Thursday, officers from the North Precinct were dispatched to a report of a car high-centered on a median in the 4700 block of 17th Avenue NE.
Witnesses described to police three people they saw walking away from the vehicle after loading plastic garbage bags with property from the car.
Officers who arrived on the scene confirmed the involved Hyundai was a stolen vehicle out of Seattle and contacted two men and a woman matching witness descriptions nearby.
All three were taken into custody based on witness interviews and other evidence which placed them inside the vehicle at the time of the collision.
Officers found the suspects in possession of multiple identification cards, credit cards, and LEGO sets totaling $5,701 which were stolen from several large chain retail stores in the area.
Two of the suspects, a 20-year-old male, and a 24-year-old male, were booked into the King County Jail for possession of stolen property and organized retail theft.
The 48-year-old woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center for an unrelated issue and officers will request charges for her associated crimes.
