Issaquah police arrested a SeaTac woman Wednesday in connection with a July burglary.
Police said the arrest came after a positive identification by residents and a weekslong investigation. The burglary occurred in early July in the Sycamore neighborhood south of downtown Issaquah.
Detectives served a search warrant on the 45-year-old woman’s vehicle Wednesday, and discovered stolen items from burglaries in Issaquah and surrounding communities.
Police later booked the woman into the King County Jail on burglary, possession of stolen property and trafficking in stolen property charges. The case remains open and under investigation by the Issaquah Police Department.
Police encouraged residents to remain vigilant as a spate of burglaries impacted neighborhoods throughout the city in recent months.
The department also offered tips to residents to prevent future burglaries:
- If you see someone suspicious in your neighborhood, call the police.
- Attempt to get a good description of the suspicious person, direction of travel and any associated vehicles, including license plates.
- Tell neighbors you trust if you plan to be away or expect any deliveries.
- If you do not know the person knocking on your door, talk to them through the closed door so they know someone is home.
