SHORELINE — King County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Kyla Malone early Thursday morning in Shoreline. A sharp-eyed deputy spotted her sitting in a 1984 silver Volvo that was parked in a disabled parking space at the Enterprise at N 148th ST And Whitman Ave N.
She told the deputy she was waiting for someone in the nearby America’s Best Value Inn but did not name that person and nobody ever came out of the motel while she was being questioned.
When asked for her identification, deputies say she gave them the names of two different women. When neither of their photos or information matched Malone, she relented after an hour of questioning and said that she didn’t want to give her real name because she was “In Washington’s Most Wanted’.
Deputies located six different ID’s on her with two different names on them, four different credit cards belonging to other people, pipes and multiple clear baggies.
The Volvo was impounded so deputies can get a warrant to search it. Shoreline PD detectives will now be following up on the new Obstruction and Identity Theft cases that she will likely be facing. She was booked into the King County jail on her $150,000 warrant for Robbery in the 1st Degree.
WANTED IN KING COUNTY —
Does Kyla Malone look like the kind of person who would lead you to being tied up and robbed? Apparently not to one victim who trusted her enough to hang out with her.
She has 28 warrants for her arrest since 2013 — and make it 29 now — because she’s wanted in King County for cutting off her GPS tracking device on her ankle. She was ordered to wear it while she awaiting trial for a violent home invasion robbery that detectives say she planned. “Kyla was over at a male’s house. She excused herself to the bathroom and instead of going to the bathroom she opened up the front door to allow one of her associates in, who was masked-up and was carrying a firearm. He came in, pistol-whipped the homeowner and Kyla and this other male ended up stealing his car, on top of several other items from his house,” said King County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ryan Abbott. “We want to get her bad and we need to know where she’s at and we need the public to help us with that. We’re hoping we can get some anonymous tips from people and we can figure out where she’s at, because she’s got a criminal history in the past. She’s already setup this pretty extensive robbery on this innocent homeowner. Thankfully, he wasn’t killed, but he was injured, quite severely, with a pistol-whip to the head and so she’s done that, she could do it again and that’s what our concern is, so we need to get her off the street, right away.”
Kyla Malone has a $150,000 arrest warrant for 1st Degree Robbery and auto theft.
She has convictions for domestic violence assault, car prowling, thefts, a drug crime and making a false statement.
She’s 27 years old, 5’6” and weighs 160 pounds.
Detectives say she’s known to hangout on the north end of King County.
