Arlington Police arrest Marysville suspect in weekend business burglaries
ARLINGTON — On Saturday, Dec. 8, Arlington Police officers arrested a 26-year-old Marysville man suspected of two recent burglaries at local businesses.
At approximately 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 8, officers responded to a business alarm in the 6200 block of 172nd Street NE in Arlington.
During a check of the area, officers contacted the 26-year-old man, who was seen walking through the area with a bag of items.
Several hours later, employees from nearby businesses in the 17800 block of 59th Avenue NE notified police, after discovering that someone had burglarized their businesses and taken numerous items.
Officers again contacted the Marysville man they had talked to earlier, who then confessed to the burglaries.
Most of the stolen items — including two handguns and $5,000 in jewelry, precious metals and cash — were recovered from the suspect upon his arrest.
Several hundred dollars were reportedly used in the purchase of illegal drugs by the suspect prior to the arrest.
