(CBS Seattle) — Police in Snohomish County say a man had his 13-year-old son load frozen beef, a turkey, a lawn mower and other property into his truck that he took from a Marysville home.

KIRO TV reports a woman living on Sunnyside Boulevard arrived at her home only to find a man and boy loading the equipment into the back of a truck. After confronting the pair, she noticed her vacuum, mower and hanging basket were among the items in the truck.

She took pictures of the two suspects before they left.

Police say after authorities were notified, an officer was able to track down the truck carrying the equipment — subsequently, the suspect was identified as Nathan Hensley.

Hensley, 59, told officers he went to the woman’s home because he was interested in buying it and admitted he went into the home because it was unlocked and for sale. Hensley told the officer he took nothing from the property except a plastic tub that was in a shed, saying “it was just junk,” and refused to tell the officer the location of the stolen items.

According to the police report, Hensley’s son was “very scared” during the incident because he knew he wasn’t supposed to be there. The boy told police most of the stolen items were dumped on the side of the road after Hensley realized the woman had taken pictures of them.

Hensley was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on charges of burglary, domestic violence and reckless endangerment.
