Police are asking for the public's help in finding a suspect they say burglarized two homes Friday morning in the English Hill and Farm neighborhoods in unincorporated King County near Woodinville.

The first burglary occurred at about 9:15 a.m. Friday on the 15500 block of NE 144th Place in the Farm neighborhood, police said. A female resident of the home reportedly arrived home and found a male inside. He fled when he saw the resident and left in a dirty, small, white sedan driven by a female in her 20s, police said.

A second burglary was reported at 9:42 a.m. on the 14000 block of 171st Lane NE, according to police. 

"We did arrive to find the burglar in the house and gave foot chase through the woods where we lost him," Woodinville Police Chief Sydney Jackson said. "We believe the two burglaries are related."

The suspect has been described as a white or light-skinned black male, about 6 feet tall, 240 lbs wearing a red zip-up hoodie and a dark baseball cap. 

Anyone with information about the suspect or crimes is asked to contact Woodinville Police at (206) 296-3311.

Did the home owner get the license plate number of the car?

I reported a car fitting this description back in August when we had the burglary and shooting up on Hollywood hill. There was an abandoned car on our street down from the shootings that no one from our street recognized by the time I finally reported it abandoned it was gone. They never did find the lady that was involved in the shooting/burglary and now this burglary has a woman in a white sedan again. It's car looked trashed inside as if someone was living in the car. I called the phone PATCH listed above and told them there could be a connection and they had no record of any robberies occurring today in the Farm or Fox Run. Pretty sad when the number for reporting information doesn't even have a clue of the burglaries, esp when there is a quote directly from the Police Chief.

Does anyone know if the homes had armed alarms? I live in the neighborhood and did hear a screeching vehicle around that time. Unfortunately, I didn't make it to the window in time to see anything.

I wouldn't be surprised if the woman is the same one from back in August that was on the lam up on the hill. Now she is back with another accomplice. There also was another woman related to the marijuana growing property near the farm that was caught burglarizing neighbors in the area. Could also be back at it again.

Bernice, back at it again!!?? I hope you're wrong, they should serve full mandatory sentence. Now with the marijuana patrols unnecessary how can Sheriff's office best use the freed up workforce, will there be more room in jails? Burglary investigations, maybe? By the way, was it a white car or white ford ranger pickup, with a headlight out? I saw one yesterday around noon pull out of my side street onto 143rd St.

I recall the one in August, but not the other one being referred to. When and where was that one?

We were robbed a few weeks ago but nothing was done, why is this one so special?
Local Guy January 02, 2013 at 09:20 PM
"why is this one so special" No one labeling this "special" aside from you Liz. Regular readers of The Patch are all too familiar with this storyline in this neighborhood. Sadly, there is nothing "special" about it... Those of us commenting on this story, and others of similar vein, are doing so because we are neighbors. We are directly affected by these acts and are motivated to share information so as to raise awareness and assist in apprehension. My neighbor had to shoot an intruder several months ago, is your story any more "special" then his? Perhaps you'd feel better sharing your story, rather then interjecting unhelpful observations on the travails of others.
