Seattle Police detectives are looking for the identify of a man who broke into a home in Magnolia earlier this month and then used the credits cards he stole from the home at a convenience store in Ballard.
On April 7th the man broke into a home in the 3000 block of 44th Avenue West. The homeowner was asleep inside at the time. The home was burglarized and a purse containing her credit cards and the keys to the victim’s car were taken. The suspect also stole her car, which was recovered in downtown Seattle one week later.
Just about two hours after the burglary, the suspect used the victim’s credit cards at a grocery store in Ballard. These images were captured on the store’s video surveillance camera. Police are asking anyone with any information on the possible identity of this person to call Seattle Police Detective Gaedcke at (206) 684-5730.
