    “But records show he does have a criminal history — including an open warrant for arrest in California.

    Right now, police sources say investigators are building a case to eventually go in and get Everett out of the beautiful home with the spectacular view.”

    This guy has an open warrant for his arrest and they have to “build a case” to go arrest him?

    ‘”It’s up to him to make a good-faith effort” to repay the tax money he stole — and if Lundberg repays a substantial amount by February, revenue officials may be willing to again delay sentencing “to allow him to continue making restitution,” Gowrylow said.’

    Like someone in the comments said, good thing he’s not a black guy who stole a 60-cent item from a store or he’d be in jail already.

    Why even have laws in this country any more?

    RE: CCG @ 1 – First, ignoring the warrant, the police seldom want to get involved in possession of property disputes without a court order. I was a bit surprised that they evicted the one on the eastside a few months ago.

    Second, this is the SPD in this case. During WTO they let trespassers take over an entire building, and that building was right across the street from a police station!

    Are there any good websites that show local homes for rent?
    Redfin doesn’t offer it at all. Zillow only has a few. Anything else?

    RE: hinten @ 4 – This post might be of some help: https://seattlebubble.com/blog/2008/10/08/where-to-search-for-rentals-in-seattle/

    When Zillow added rentals, I was hopeful that more people would use it and they would become a leader in rental search. Unfortunately it seems that adoption has been rather weak.

    RE: The Tim @ 5

    Awesome, thank you. For my area it seems that Hotpads actually the most listings.

    @ Tim & hinten– I had high hopes for Zillow too, as Craigslist is dying to be upstaged– filled with spam and almost no search functions. Unfortunately it still seems to have the most listings. I will have to check out some of those other links.
