Here's some more info on the stolen Kenwood TH-D74A.

S/N B910236

Black Icom wrist strap, stock Kenwood antenna. Battery case is marked 
"Battery #2." The rear of the radio is marked next to the belt clip in 
black indelible marker with "WL7CES." The welcome screen is currently 
programmed with "WL7CES." The radio has a Samsung memory card in it. It 
has had the MARS/CAP mod and has FRS and GMRS channels programmed in. It 
also has the Everett Mall's frequencies programmed in. It does not have 
any DMR codes in it.

Seattle Police case number is 2018-56123.

The radio was grabbed away from Tim just after he got off the bus at 
Westlake Mall. He thought it was a Seattle Community College student 
that grabbed it but that seems pretty unlikely to me. He said the kid 
had been on the bus with him and seemed pretty arrogant (not much to go 
on there). I don't have a description of the perp beyond that.
