The following police reports were provided by the Seattle Police Department. They represent the officers' view of the incidents described.

MADISON VALLEY: Big burglary

A woman arrived home in the 1700 block of 24th Avenue around 2 p.m. on Nov. 7 to find a gate open and a side door unlocked. Inside, items were found lying on the floor in one room, which was not how she left it, she said.

Responding officers found a shattered window, through which the burglar likely entered. 

Drawers had been dumped on the floor as though the suspect “rapidly went through” them.

Two rifles stored in a closet were not taken; an unspecified number of handguns were also still in their storage areas.

However, the suspect stole $80 cash; about $400 in loose change in a glass jar; a jewelry box containing a $50 antique brooch, a $900 gold necklace, another necklace and about $2,500 worth of other jewelry; assorted camera equipment worth at total of about $8,455; and a $400 pellet gun.

Fingerprints found on several glass items were submitted into evidence.


Stolen computers

A woman in the 1800 block of 23rd Avenue called police to report that her home had been burglarized.

Two laptop computers were reported stolen at the time of the report.

The suspect likely entered through an unlocked basement window. No fingerprints were found.


MADRONA: Messy burglar

Police responded to the 900 block of 29th Avenue to investigate a burglary that was reported at 8:05 p.m. on Nov. 10.

According to the police report, a man arrived home around 8 p.m. to find his front door open, with no signs of forced entry. The inside of the home has been ransacked, with items thrown all about.

There was mud and what appeared to be blood smeared on the walls and on some of the man’s property. However, the police didn’t collect any blood samples, as this was a property crime with no suspect information, the report said. 

There were no prints near any of the blood smears.

There was nothing reported missing at the time of the report.
