The KCSO Public Disclosure Unit has completed research and identified reports meeting the parameters of your request. As you are aware, RCW 9A.48.020 does not note motive as a factor; in order to identify potentially responsive records we queried for all reports with suspects charged under 9A.48.020 where the narrative contains variations of the search terms "hired", "paid" or "payment". The records are being reviewed for privileged information prior to release.

The department is experiencing a high volume of open requests and we must coordinate our response with other units in the Sheriff’s Office. We anticipate our first installment to you on or before October 25, 2019 . If we are unable to meet this self-imposed deadline, we will let you know. If we are able to provide a response sooner, we will certainly do so.

Your request is subject to fees as allowed under King County Ordinance 18949 and the Public Records Act, RCW 42.56.120. Please visit our website at https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/sheriff/services/public-disclosure/faqs-
for-public-disclosure.aspx and select " What is the cost to obtain public records" for more information. Once we have determined the scope of your request and responsive records, we may provide an estimate for fees requiring 10% down prior to processing your request. PLEASE NOTE: Per RCW 42.56.120(4), the KCSO reserves the right to close a records request after 30 days if a requester does not inspect, view, download, and/or pick up the records we provide. There is no obligation for us to continue producing records that are not being collected by a requester.
RCW 42.56.120(4) states that if an installment of a records request is not claimed or reviewed, the agency is not obligated to fulfill the balance of the request.
WAC 44-14-04006(1) states that a records request has been fulfilled and can be closed if an entirely unclear request has not been clarified, a request or installment has not been claimed or reviewed, or the requester cancels the request. Please reply to this message or log in to the Online Request System if you have any questions or would like to clarify or cancel this request.

The KCSO Public Disclosure Unit has located the following records responsive to your request as a first (1st) installment:

05-345878 *Unable to locate Stolen Vehicle Report
05-345892 - Part 1
05-346043 * Unable to locate Stolen Vehicle Report
I have uploaded these records for your review. In addition, I have included an Exemption Log Key to explain any redactions applied. Regarding 05-345878 and 05-346043, I have searched in the typical databases where such records would be located, but so far have been unable to locate the Stolen Vehicle Report that is listed as an attachment. If you would like me to continue the search for this record, please clarify your interest by November 25, or I will interpret a lack of response as a declination of a continued search. Regarding 05-345892, I will be releasing this case in installments, as there are over four hundred pages of documentation that require close review. Responsive to your request is one additional case, 07-172164, which is over two hundred pages long and will also likely be broken down into installments. I anticipate releasing the second (2nd) installment on or before November 28, 2019. If I am unable to meet this self-imposed deadline, I will notify you.
