Date and Time of Seizure: 1/29/2020, at 11:30 a.m.

Place of Seizure: The baggage claim area near baggage claim 15 and the public lobby at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Seattle, Washington


To Port of Seattle,


I represent Mr. Roshard McClinton in regards to a seizure of $9,420.00/$9,470.00 in U.S. Currency by the Port of Seattle Police Department on January 29, 2020, at 11:30 a.m. at the baggage claim area of the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.


This is a request under the Washington State Public Records Act for any and all documentation, whether hard copy or electronic or video, with regard to the detention of Roshard McClinton, on January 29, 2020, by Detective Cory Stairs with the Port of Seattle Police Department, at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, near Baggage Claim 15 and the public lobby, specifically including but not limited to:


  1. Any and all video surveillance of Mr. Roshard McClinton exiting the airplane from Gate C11 after the plane landed at approximately 11:07 a.m. and walking to Baggage Claim 15.


  1. Any and all video surveillance of Mr. Roshard McClinton waiting for his luggage and then being detained at Baggage Claim 15 by Detective Cory Stairs, then escorted to the public lobby, and until the time that he was released to leave the airport, including but not limited to all video of the baggage claim area and the public lobby area from 11:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.


In the event any portion of this request for records is denied, kindly cite the specific statutory exemptions believed to justify refusal to release the information.  In the event any portion of an individual record is redacted, please “black-out” rather than “white-out” such deletion so that the existence of deleted material is readily identifiable.


Copies of the requested records should be furnished to me as soon as possible and without our prior inspection provided the fee for making and furnishing the copies will not exceed $50.00.  If the fee will exceed $50.00, kindly contact me before proceeding further.


I certify that this video will not be used for commercial purposes.


Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or need additional information.
