Police: Arrested man could apply for 'frequent-felon miles'
SEATTLE -- A man with 23 felony convictions may just have earned his 24th after being arrested Monday evening in Delridge with more than a pound of methamphetamine on him, according to the Seattle Police Department.
According to police, the 35-year-old frequent felon was speeding down 16th Avenue Southwest, apparently in a chase with a car, around 7:15 p.m. when an officer stopped him.
The officer reportedly found a shrink-wrapped package of meth and a large amount of cash on the man, who was arrested and booked into King County Jail for investigation of possession with intent to distribute.
In the least surprising part of this story, the man -- who has at least nine prison stays to go with his 23 felony convictions -- was wanted on an outstanding warrant at the time of his arrest.
