The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office and the Everett Police Department are both looking for a person of interest in connection with a series of burglaries at mobile home parks that have retired people 55 years and older.
The person that the law enforcement agencies are looking for is described as a person of interest, not a suspect. He is described as about 6 feet tall, about 180lbs. He was last seen in the 16800 block of Highway 99 in Lynnwood at 3am on Thursday, October 4, 2012 wearing a black or dark blue hoodie with orange writing and grey sweats.
If you know who this person is and where to find him place call the Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at (425) 388-3845.
At least 25 burglaries have been reported in Carriage Club Estates, Lynnwood Heights, Wandering Creek, Lago de Plata Villa and Mariner Village mobile home parks. The burglar took jewelry, cash and electronics. Entry has been at night through a window, often unscrewing porch lights or interior lamp bulbs.
According to The Herald, many people were home during the burglaries. The burglar tended to be quiet and tidy.
Police have been working with residents in the mobile home parks and Neighborhood Watch groups.
Note: Most residential burglaries occur during the day when fewer people are around in the neighborhood. This burglar must figure that retired people are around during the day, and that entering their homes at night when most people are asleep is not as risky as entering during daylight.
