A resident on 38th Ave NE called 911 to report an in-progress burglary at his residence. He was off-site and watching it via surveillance cameras. It turned out to be an attempted burglary and Criminal Trespass 2nd. The subject was scared off by an alarm and unrelated sirens from a passing Fire Department vehicle. Five patrol vehicles responded and were in the area until around 1830 hrs. The reporting party provided high quality surveillance video of the suspect. In piecing together the timeline of events, it appears the suspect then went next door to another residence, on 38th Ave NE, kicked in the door, and burglarized the home. Based on the investigation, the suspect had a partner and/or vehicle in the area. The suspect then crossed the street to another residence on 38th Ave NE and entered through an unlocked front door where he encountered the residents. The homeowner said they told the suspect to leave, but then felt bad and called him back in. This would have been about the time police units were in the area looking for him. They asked if he needed help, to which the suspect replied that he was autistic. The homeowner described the suspect as very thin and heavily tattooed with additional descriptors, which perfectly matched the suspect in the surveillance video. The homeowner then offered to drive the suspect somewhere, which he accepted. He was then driven to an address in Bothell. The homeowner called the police the next morning. The investigation is ongoing.
