From the Chief: Rash of burglaries in Lake Forest Park

Monday, February 23, 2015

From LFP Police Chief Steve Sutton

Over the past couple of months, the City has been hit with a rash of residential burglaries that have hit two areas in particular - the Sheridan Beach and Heights. 75% of them were forced entry in the back of the home, typically by smashing in the rear sliding glass door.

This is obviously an issue that we are taking very serious. My officers are keenly aware of the problem areas and we are stepping up patrols in those neighborhoods, both in marked and unmarked cruisers. We are currently also working several leads in an attempt to catch the burglar(s).

Your vigilance and immediate communication calling in suspicious activity is appreciated.

We are looking for an older, mid to late 90’s, white Dodge Dakota pickup truck with a grey decorative swoosh on the side. The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his mid to late thirty’s or early forty’s with dark shoulder length hair with a mullet type cut.

The suspect was seen fleeing our City north on Cedar Way into Mountlake Terrace recently. If you know this person or see this vehicle please contact the Lake Forest Park Police Department immediately.

Please urge the homeowners in your neighborhood to take protective measures as outlined in our Crime Prevention guide. They will work!

How many of these homes had alarm systems that would have alerted the police or neighbors to the break in?
