On April 25th, police were called to a home on 68th and 15th NE after residents in the home were awoken by the sound of breaking glass at about 3:00am.
The residents found their front door wide open and heard someone "bumping around" on the ground floor of the home, and called police.
When officers arrived at the home, they found a Department of Corrections ID card—with the felon's name and picture on the front—sitting inside the front door of the house.
Police interviewed the residents, who told officers the only thing that had been taken was a universal remote and one Bose speaker.
While officers were at the house, a witness drove up to the scene and told police he had seen a man trying to break into cars a few blocks away.
Officers went looking for the car prowler, and found a man sleeping in a car on the street. When police pulled the man out of the car to talk to him, a black remote and Bose speaker fell onto the ground. Police were immediately able to match the able to match the man in the car with the DOC ID he'd left at the home he had just burglarized, and officers booked him into the King County Jail.
