An attempted burglary in the 6700 block of 234th St SW lead to a search that woke up much of the Lake Ballinger neighborhood early Wednesday morning.
The suspect opened a sliding door of a home but soon after the residents woke up and the suspect was scared off according to MLT PD Public Information Officer Joie Worthen. Mountlake Terrace Police had assistance from Edmonds and Brier police departments as well as the King County Sheriff’s “Guardian One” helicopter. From the tips we received, it sounds like the helicopter was searching some time around 2-3 AM.
The suspect was not located and the case has been forwarded to investigations for follow-up.
Thanks for all the tips we received about this from MLTnews readers.
