Another home in the Snoqualmie Ridge neighborhood of Deer Park home was the victim of a daylight break-in yesterday, May 2nd, around 7:05PM. The homeowner reported that this is the third Deer Park burglary in the past sixty days.
The homeowners were shaken, but luckily not home at the time of the incident. The victim says they are usually always home that time of the evening, but just happened to run an errand last night. Neighbors reported the crime about 7:30PM when they noticed the back gate open.
Like the first break-in, the burglarized home backs to a green belt and city trail and sits at the end of a quiet street. The thief rang doorbells in the neighborhood, saying his car broke down and needed a compressor. When he found a home where no one answered, he went to the back of the house and pried open a window. Jewelry and computers were taken. The thief was in and out in about five minutes.
A neighbor gave a brief description of the burglar – tall, thin with olive an complextion, carrying a bag – as well as partial license plate number. It is reported the suspect drove a “suped-up” blue truck.
It was reported that police responded to another possible break-in around 5:30PM, but a security system may have scared off the intruder.
I am really appreciating my security system these days.
