A man suspected of burglarizing several outbuildings in the Valley’s vicinity was captured late Friday afternoon, Oct. 17, after a publicized search by police.

The suspect, a 41-year-old transient man, was arrested at 5:40 p.m. near Fall City, after a search that began around noon Friday. King County Sheriff’s deputies began searching for him in the unincorporated area near Sammamish, and notified area residents to be on the lookout for a man described as white, six feet tall, 190 pounds with long reddish-blonde hair. A Fall City-area  resident saw a man fitting the description and called 911.

Police used a search dog to locate the suspect in the woods. He was arrested without incident, and taken to the King County Jail.

Deputies say residents should keep their homes and sheds locked, and to leave an exterior light on during the hours of darkness. Criminals prefer to work under cover of darkness and lighting your property makes a home a less favorable target for burglars and prowlers.
