Prison time does strange things to a man. For child-raping white supremacist Blaine Olds, it appears to be making him remember some interesting details from his recently concluded career in violent crime.
Police say on Sept. 1, he wrote a letter to Department of Corrections Chief Investigator Steve Demars and outlined with a drawn map the location where he secured four duffel bags containing stolen guns.
"I am very serious about turning over a new leaf," court documents show he wrote in the letter. "I'm just asking for a chance."
The problem with Mr. Olds' contribution to justice: Seattle police officers went and looked for the guns and they weren't there.
Olds says that the weapons definitely were there--he got the ill-gotten guns (robbed from a gun shop) by trading ill-gotten Oxycontin (acquired through forged prescriptions) back in 2009 with the intention of selling them for cash.
Until he could sell them, however, Olds said he found a guy in North Bend who let him keep the weapons in a locked storage container while he did his time in prison--a container that was empty when police looked at it.
So now police know that there are four duffel bags' worth of assault weapons located who-knows-where, and Olds has it made it public that he's a police informant willing to do whatever it takes to shorten his sentence.
But without the guns Olds hasn't pleased the cops; and by talking to the cops, he certainly hasn't pleased his fellow inmates.
So with three or four years left on his sentence, Olds seems to have only succeeded in likely making those years significantly more unpleasant.
