Police: Man’s arrest solves 6 Edmonds burglaries

There is not points to locate on the map

Edmonds police say a man arrested yesterday following a home break-in is responsible for at least a half-dozen burglaries in the city.

The suspect, a 44-year-old Monroe man, was arrested just after 5:30 a.m. after he was spotted leaving a home in the 22200 block of 96th Avenue West that had just been burglarized, according to police. Officers had been watching the home  following a break-in a few days earlier.

The man was armed with a knife and pepper spray, but did not resist when he was taken into custody, police said. He was carrying bags of property taken from the home.

During their investigation, detectives recovered stolen property from the man’s vehicle as well as his home in Monroe. Police said the items included precious metals, jewelry, silver and china serving sets, TVs, antiques and tools. 

So far, detectives believe the man is responsible for six burglaries.  Police say he is a garbage truck driver who burglarized homes along his route.

He has been booked into the Snohomish County Jail.
