Caught on camera: Burglar breaks into Kent home, victims looking for justice
Kent, Wash. — A Kent couple living in West Hill catches a burglar on camera and they hope the thief is brought to justice.
Around 10:50am on Friday, a man is seen by security cameras getting dropped off in front of the victims home by a silver 4-sedan with tinted windows. The suspect checks out the home for a few minutes and then grabs a rock and throws it through a bedroom window. The burglar climbs through the window and begins to rummage through drawers and under beds. Luckily a neighbor heard the glass shatter and watched as the man got into her neighbors home.
“I see a guy..like his shoes going through the window. I’m thinking ok..maybe somebody forgot their keys,” Neighbor Catherine Sutton said.
Catherine ran next door and knocked and no one answered, so she called police who arrived a few minutes later. Unfortunately, the thief ran off through a back door and got away. However, because of Catherine’s quick actions, the thief only spent less than five minutes inside the house before running off. The homeowners say he did make a mess but the only thing missing is a wallet that no one uses.
Luckily, the homeowners have several security cameras set up around the house and were able to get clear video of the suspect at work. They’ve filed a report with Kent Police.
