MOUNT VERNON — A man accused of burglarizing the Sedro-Woolley Museum naked pleaded not guilty Thursday in Skagit County Superior Court.
Kevin Quinn of Sedro-Woolley is charged with second-degree burglary and taking a motor vehicle without permission.
Museum security footage showed a naked, bleeding man trying to spell out letters with sticks that appeared to be broken off of various items in the museum’s garage.
Quinn, 21, was arrested Sept. 1 after a Sedro-Woolley man told police Quinn stole his Ford F150 pickup. Quinn led sheriff’s deputies to the truck, which was parked at the museum and full of sawdust, according to the affidavit in the case.
The garage to the museum had been broken into, but not the museum itself.
Deputies found beer cans with blood on them that matched some beer cans in the truck. Museum property also had blood on it.
Quinn had a fresh wound on his hand that was still bleeding, according to the affidavit.
Quinn, who has six prior felony convictions, is in the Skagit County Jail with bail set at $25,000.
