Unique tattoo helps identify a very busy burglar

Bellevue Detectives identified and arrested a prolific burglar in Seattle Wednesday evening.  The 30-year-old is a suspect in at least 18 burglaries, including one in Bellevue, five in Redmond, and more than a dozen in Seattle.

The Bellevue burglary occurred on September 4th in an apartment building in the 10400 block NE 2nd St.  Investigators found 33 storage lockers pried open, and belongings were strewn about the area.  Security cameras recorded two suspects, a female, and a male.

The female was identified by her unique tattoo and arrested in north Seattle, driving a fraudulently rented white Nissan. She was seen at a burglary in Redmond driving the same car.

Detectives booked her into jail on charges of Burglary, Vehicle Theft, and Identity Theft. Investigators are still looking for her male accomplice.

Bellevue detectives are working with the other jurisdictions to recover any stolen property and evidence to support those cases.
