Six burglaries in this small area of the
Briarcrest neighborhood
Shoreline police report that in the past month there have been six residential burglaries in the Briarcrest neighborhood.

They occurred in the area between NE 145th to 150th and between 17th Ave NE to 23rd Ave NE.

Four of the burglaries occurred on a Monday.

The pattern suggests it may be a juvenile suspect living in the area, who is possibly on foot or using a bike.

In one burglary entry was made through a dog door and in others entry was made through a window at the rear of the home.

The crimes have occurred between 6:00am to 7:30pm.

Items stolen have been jewelry, electronics and cash. In one case the burglary occurred within 10 minutes of the homeowner leaving their home.

Shoreline officers are aware of the problem and will be spending more time in the area. Detectives are actively working the cases.

It’s typical that the burglar will knock on the front door. If there’s an answer they may give a story that sounds suspicious. If there’s no answer they may go around back or look for a concealed area to make entry.

If you notice anything suspicious, call 911 immediately.

It's pretty clear these folks are moving neighborhood to neighborhood. They were busy in Ridgecrest just last month. I never saw an increased police presence. Isn't Presence the first step in Enforcement?
