In a parking lot, patrol deputies spotted a red Acura Integra that was displaying license plates that belong to a silver Chevy Impala. They contacted a male suspect who was working on the vehicle. They pointed out the switched plates and told the suspect they needed to do some further investigation. There was a piece of paper covering the VIN plate in the windshield, so they asked the suspect to remove it. When he did, they discovered that the VIN plate had been removed. The VIN sticker in the door jamb looked like it had been peeled off another vehicle and placed on this one. Deputies found a secondary VIN sticker which matches a red Acura Integra that was stolen in Tukwila. The 36-year-old suspect was arrested and booked into jail for possession of a stolen vehicle.
