T-Mobile-thiefFUGITIVE CAPTURED August 9, 2014 —
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office says WMW viewer tips helped detectives identify and arrest the man accused of breaking into a T-Mobile store in Everett.

Detectives say the suspect said he was tired of running, and had shaved off his hair and beard to try and avoid being identified.

Snohomish County detectives need your help identifying this bold burglar who ripped-off thousands of dollars worth of cell phones and other devices from a T-Mobile store in Everett.

Detectives say the suspect used a rooftop route to break-in and punched through the ceiling to get into the store’s storage room.

From there it was all caught on camera.

“The video itself simply, at the beginning of it, shows the suspect appearing. His feet come down first onto the top of a metal shelf and then down onto the floor and then, apparently he’s got a lot of time, he’s carefully loading up totes full of the items he wants to take and then puts the totes on the top of the shelf and then climbs back up and disappears the way he came in.”

“The victims are out a lot of money a lot of devices and it adversely affects their business, and of course, most people like this who take things like this don’t just do it once, so if you can pull him up on it once and hold him accountable it perhaps will suppress future crimewaves.”

Take another really good look at this guy who seems to be a U2 fan -- wearing a t-shirt from the mega-rock band's "360 tour" that came to Seattle a few years ago.
