CAPTURED: Snohomish County Sheriff's deputies arrest home burglary suspect John Duval in Monroe

CAPTURED -- December 2, 2019

Snohomish County Sheriff's deputies caught a home burglary suspect wanted in Shoreline and Edmonds since August.  Deputies booked John Duval into jail at 7:19 pm on Sunday, December 1st for Burglary, Resisting Arrest, Heroin possession and Parole Violation.


Snohomish County Sheriff's Office Communications Specialist Courtney O'Keefe says east county deputies received information that a vehicle associated with Duval was parked in the 15400 block of Esther Drive in Monroe.

Deputies went to the residence and waited a short time. When he walked outside to smoke a cigarette and was contacted by deputies, he turned and walked the opposite way, but was stopped and placed under arrest without further incident.


Duval will also be facing home burglary charges in King County.

The Department of Corrections and King County Sheriff's deputies are on the hunt for a violent White Supremacist gang member whose MO is to break into people’s homes.

Detectives say Duval is seen on surveillance video at a home in Shoreline last month, where he broke into the house and loaded-up a suitcase full of jewelry and other valuables.

The video shows a big, distinctive shin tattoo he has on his left leg.

He's wanted in King County for that break-in and by the DOC for busting probation on a prior residential burglary conviction.

“He's mainly in the north end of King County. Shoreline. Edmonds Police is also looking for him for something similar, so he hangs out in the north end of King County, Snohomish County area. Most likely he's just couch-surfing or living on the street, or living hotel to motel along the way and we're just hoping, maybe a front desk person recognized him, or somebody else recognizes him and can call in that anonymous tip,” said King County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ryan Abbott. “He's got a history to be violent and thankfully the house that we have him on, nobody was home at the time, but the fear is, what if somebody was home and we don't know what his ultimate plan is, other than to steal items to make money and what if somebody was home, what would have happened, so we need to find him and get him off the streets as soon as possible."

Duval has been convicted of several home burglaries.

He also has domestic violence assault and harassment, robbery, theft, car prowling, forgery and drugs on his rap sheet.

He's 43 years old.
