The cops had been looking for a white girl who set 5 Seattle Police Department cars on fire during protests for George Floyd but since she was wearing a mask on her face, it was hard to recognize her.
Recently, federal authorities found out various pictures and videos that link to Margaret Aislinn Channon who was found setting the vehicles on fire. The police caught her by her distinctive arm tattoos.
Channon was wearing full SWAT gear while she burned 5 vehicles on May 30 in Tacoma, Washington for which she is charged with five counts of federal arsons. She was recorded on multiple cameras as she used an inflammatory spray, lit like a blowtorch, to start the fire with.
She not only put the public at risk but created a very real risk of structure fire among hundreds of protesters that potentially could have been harmed. The woman was wearing a stripy t-shirt all the time while she torched all of the 5 vehicles.
The police realized she has a distinctive ‘W-A-I -F’ tattoo on her left finger and a heart tattoo on the middle one which led them to a vigorous investigation.
After searching for her social media and other whereabouts, the cops were sure it was Channon.Also, during the home search in Tacoma, the cops found out the clothes she was wearing on May 30th.
Some other shocking facts were also revealed during this investigation. Channon’s tattoos were linked to a missing person case in Texas in 2019. She is in federal custody right now and nobody’s sure if she has a lawyer to speak on her behalf on Wednesday evening.
According to the U.S attorney’s office, Channon is scheduled to appear at U.S District Court in Seattle on Friday afternoon where her fate will be discussed.
