Bold Home Burglar: Cops say he used ladder for broad daylight break-in -- while victim was home

ladderWANTED IN KING COUNTY -- What's especially troubling about this crook is what he's willing to do to get into people's homes. King County deputies say this unidentified burglar used a 24-foot ladder to break into a house in Skyway -- in broad daylight -- with a family member in another room. They heard a window break and rushed into the second floor bedroom. "In this burglary case our victim was home. He heard a large crash and went upstairs and he saw a suspect inside one of the rooms upstairs stealing computers,” says King County Sgt. Cindi West. “The suspect then grabbed the items that he was intending on stealing and went back out the window, back down the ladder, and fled through the neighborhood. Luckily in this case there was an alert neighbor that was able to get video of the suspect leaving the scene with stolen property in hand." The burglar is heavy-set with bleached blonde hair, a dark beard, and an earring in his right ear. He was wearing baggy jeans and an orange construction vest.
