WANTED IN SEATTLE —
If this burglar put as much effort into working a job like the rest of us he would probably be successful, because he showed real determination when he broke into a building in Seattle.
Fortunately for us — he looked right into the camera.
The video is from October 29th on S. Weller St. where police say he tried to get in through the front door by using a security code, but then moved on to more drastic measures. “It appears to us he has knowledge of this building, because they’ve have had prior burglaries and this is a lock-out facility. You have to have a code to get in. Well, he doesn’t wait for the code, he goes down and climbs up a garage door. It’s about 15 feet in height. Once he’s over the door, it allows him to get into a corridor which gets to the occupants of the building. Once he got into that suite, then he took six laptops and a bunch of stuff. Now, the really good news is that you are going to get a really good look at this guy. If you look at his face, he’s like, ‘Whoa! There I am,’ said Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound.
Detectives think he's white, in his 20's, around 5’10”, 160 pounds, with long brown hair.
