Renton Police Department is seeking public assistance to find three men suspected of stealing a car from an apartment complex on May 1.

A Renton couple’s 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SUV was stolen from their apartment parking lot. The keys for their car was taken in a smash-and-grab car prowl at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park few days prior to that, according to a press release.

Yesterday, May 30, detectives from the Puget Sound Auto Theft Task Force found and recovered the vehicle with the help of RPD.

The suspects reportedly stole the victim’s credit cards and used it immediately after the initial car prowl.

If you have any information regarding this case, contact detective Robert Onishi at 425-430-7529.
