Detectives seeking Cinnabon burglar at Northgate

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.
