Police say the suspects broke through the front of an auto detailer in Bellevue on Monday night before crashing into a Fife dealership.

BELLEVUE, Wash. — A group of thieves is accused of stealing two cars from two different businesses in Bellevue and Fife on Monday night, crashing one of them.

The series of events started at 10:21 p.m. when two suspects crashed a white Chevy Cruz into the AutoNation detailing building near 120th Ave. NE and NE Spring Boulevard, according to the Bellevue Police Department. Another suspect arrived at the AutoNation in a different car.

Bellevue police said one of the suspects fled in a stolen 2016 Porsche Cayman. The Porsche has a suggested retail price starting around $53,600, according to Kelley Blue Book. 

The two other suspects left in the Chevy.

The Porsche crashed near the northbound Interstate 405 on-ramp and NE 8th Street. Washington State Patrol arrested a 31-year-old Fife man who was walking nearby.

Meanwhile, a Chevy Cruz crashed into the service bay at the Infinity dealership on Pacific Highway East in Fife at 11:11 p.m., according to the Fife Police Department.

The car was impounded, and its license plates matched those from the Chevy from the Bellevue scene, according to Bellevue police.

Two of the suspects are accused of stealing a 2021 Ford Bronco from the Fife dealership. The Bronco retails around $28,500.

As of Tuesday morning, police are still searching for two outstanding suspects. The Ford Bronco has not been found.

Police said they did not pursue the suspects due to a recently passed police reform law that prohibits pursuits without probable cause.
