Police located items from a U-Haul truck stolen from Issaquah in February and arrested suspects in the case, investigators announced Nov. 22.

The truck contained 1,200 silver coins, 13 firearms and several computer towers. Police recovered the truck in Seattle days after the Feb. 13 heist, but the contents remained missing.

The belongings’ owner, Zack Judson, launched a campaign on the Web and social media services to encourage people to report tips. Meanwhile, Issaquah police investigators identified several suspects involved in the sale or possession of stolen items from the truck.

Prosecutors filed possession of stolen property and trafficking in stolen property charges against five people involved in the case.

Police recovered 10 firearms, 300 silver coins, computer towers and household items. Tukwila police officers and King County Sheriff’s Office deputies assisted in the recovery and arrests.

Judson relocated from California to Washington days before thieves stole the truck from the Hilton Garden Inn parking lot.
