Hot on the heels of our neighbors at Latona and NE 42nd St discovering a burglar in their house at 7 pm, this was just posted to the Green Lake Mom’s list by a member who lives in the 50th and 2nd Ave NE area of Wallingford:
Wanted to give everyone a heads up that we were just burgled. A woman, about 40 with short dark hair, mixed race walked into our house at about 2:00pm today. My husband was home, upstairs checking on my toddler (my older son was next door). He came down and found her wandering around. He is really trusting so he asked her only a few questions. She said something about looking for her kids. He escorted her out of the house not realizing she had my laptop/mouse/cord in her bag and a jar of change.
The police said she’s well known in the neighborhood (begging the question, why is she still around?). She got into a truck and my husband took the licence plate. Turns out the truck was stolen from Wenatchee. Anyway, spread the word and lock the doors again for a while.
