Apprehension: The Booze Bandit
Who: Operator Jessica and Seattle PD What: One suspected burglar in custody When: Jan. 26, 2013 at 4:22 a.m. Where: A downtown Seattle Mexican restaurant How: At 4:22 a.m. on Saturday the 26th, Jessica received multiple trips on motion viewing security cameras installed by Secure Pacific in a Mexican restaurant in Seattle. She saw a male with a backpack and a white hat and called police with verification that a crime was in progress. When officers arrived, the suspect had left the premises, but a witness pointed them in the direction of the suspect seen on video as well as an accomplice. The suspect had gained entry to the restaurant by breaking out a window. In doing so, he cut his hand badly and consequently trailed blood through the restaurant. He tried to open all the interior doors and stole several bottles of liquor. To escape, he pushed a chair up to an upper window and broke his way out, leaving blood smeared against the window and chair. Police found and apprehended one of the suspects, who was identified by his mangled hand. Officers are currently processing all of the evidence to determine the charges. The restaurant was able to quickly disguise the broken entry and exit points with artwork.
