Woman, 28, arrested in burglary at UW frat house

A 28-year-old woman who allegedly dropped a case of Red Bull as she fled on bicycle from a University of Washington fraternity house was arrested Tuesday in connection with the burglary, said Seattle police.

Police said that “science and old-fashioned police work” led detectives to the suspect.

It all started on Nov. 18 at about 6:30 in the morning when a male house member at the frat, in the 4600 block of 22nd Avenue Northeast, saw an unknown man walking down the stairs from the second floor.

When confronted, the man  quickly left the house and was last seen riding a bicycle, said police.

When the frat member went outside, police said, he heard a rustling noise in the bushes and discovered an unknown female. She was carrying a case of Red Bull, which she dropped as she also fled on a bicycle.

Then, on Dec. 2, shortly after midnight, two North Precinct police officers located and arrested a female for a warrant and violation of the Uniform Controlled Substances Act, said police.

She was booked at the King County Jail.

The next day, on Dec. 3, the woman confessed to the Red Bull burglary, said police.

Police said other burglaries at UW fraternities and sororities remain under investigation.
