(CBS Seattle) — Seattle police tracked down a robbery suspect after finding his ID at the home he allegedly broke in to.
Tuesday afternoon a Green Lake woman and her children came home to find the back door of their home had been shattered. They ran out of the house and discovered a man wearing a leather jacket belonging to the woman’s husband. The suspect threatened the family with a pipe. The woman tried to grab the pipe from the suspect and started yelling at him. A neighbor heard the commotion and called police and the suspect took off.
When police arrived at the home, they found what they thought might be the suspect’s ID and alerted other officers. Seattle police say later Tuesday night officers were called to the Wallingford QFC, where witnesses said a man opened a bottle of whisky and a package of cheese and refused to leave the store’s bathroom. Police found the man passed out on the bathroom floor. When they woke him up, they found he still had stolen property belonging to the Green Lake family.
The suspect was arrested for burglary and robbery and booked into jail. The case was sent to detectives for further investigation.
