Detectives seeking Cinnabon burglar at Northgate

Posted by Mike on March 10th, 2014

Number 25 did it.

That might be the clearest thing about the surveillance photos above.

Here’s the rest of the story, as posted this afternoon by Seattle Police:

Seattle police are hoping someone will roll over on a burglar who snuck into the Northgate Mall early last Thursday and made a beeline for the Cinnabon.

Around 6:45 a.m. on March 6th, the suspect crept through an unlocked service entrance and walked directly to the Cinnabon at the south end of the mall.

The suspect began crawling around inside the store—which had not opened for the day—where he stole three small bottles of milk and crawled into an office. The suspect spent the next eight minutes inside the office, where he stole several thousand dollars in cash. The suspect then limped out of the store and down a hallway, and quickly limped off down First Avenue Northeast.

Detectives don’t know much about the suspect other than the fact that he has a medium build, was wearing a red mask or bandanna, and has a significant limp on his left leg.

If you recognize this suspect or know anything about this case, please call (206) 625-5011.

    Id be willing to bet that he doesnt really have a limp.

    Might be Keyser Söze, or Richard Sherman?

    This post generates two other comments aside from my own. Meanwhile the coffee selling church is on # 33. Good to know that the good citizens of Maple Leaf are responding to what is really important in the neighborhood.

    Because there’s nothing to discuss here. This post is just informational: “keep your eyes peeled for this guy” whereas the coffee post had a good discussion on zoning.

    Concerned Citizen you’re my new friend.

    I would like to point out that Maple Leaf has disowned Northgate Mall as in “the neighborhood.”

    The Keyser comment made me laugh :)
