As the Seattle Times first reported Monday evening, and in conjunction with the still ongoing "May Day Task Force" investigation, Seattle Police have filed search-warrant documents in King County Superior Court - documents indicating police have honed in on a list of suspects by teaming with the Department of Corrections and by confiscating clothing that may have been worn during the protests.

The Times' story notes that none of the suspects mentioned in the most-recent spate of search warrant paper work have had their cases officially forwarded to prosecutors for charges. One of the suspects is identified as a 21-year-old Shoreline woman who "was identified after her boyfriend's DOC officer contacted police." The couple's home was searches by police, with "a black jacket, a camouflage backpack, black pants, two pairs of goggles, two bandannas and a green sweatshirt," confiscated by police.

Also according to the Times:

In addition, police searched the South Seattle home of a 23-year-old man, seeking a red stocking cap, a plaid sleeveless shirt, black pants, brown shoes, a red bandanna, a black jacket, a black sweatshirt, goggles and a beanie-style cap, according to the paperwork. The man evidently was recognized by police.

In the case of a 27-year-old Seattle man, police searched his Ballard home to find a pink headband, a purple scarf, a lavender button-up shirt, a gray sweatshirt, a brown belt, black pants, black/white Nike sneakers and a brown/black backpack.

Also of note, the Times reports that according to recent search warrant paperwork NikeTown incurred nearly $53,000 in damage on May Day, Wells Fargo Bank at Fourth and Seneca suffered almost $26,000, and a poor, defenseless Verizon Wireless store received $1,905 in damage.

As you'll recall, in early July Seattle police served a similar May Day-related search warrant at the apartment of three self-proclaimed Occupy protestors - seizing a zip-up sweater, one glove, a blue beanie, a pink scarf, and some flyers during the effort.
