Residential burglary takes
place in broad daylight
KINGSTON A 37-year-old Kingston resident reported her home was broken into and several valuable items taken at about 12:30 p.m. Sept. 10 at the 24000 block of Taree Drive, according to the Kitsap County Sheriffs Office. The woman had pulled into her driveway to find the front door open, and the window next to it shattered. She immediately drove to a neighbors house to report the burglary, deputies said.
A car axle weighing between 75 and 100 pounds was found on the porch near the point of entry with a white T-shirt wrapped around one end. The window itself had electrical tape around the edges to reduce the noise and amount of glass that fell out when it was hit, deputies said.
A neighbor said a man in his 20s had come her house at about 11:30 a.m. the same day looking for a lost dog. She described him as between 20-24 years of age, 6 to 62, 180 pounds, with short black hair. He was wearing a black T-shirt, black shoes and pants and was clean cut but had numerous piercings. She told deputies she saw the same young man standing in the backyard of the house that was broken into.
Deputies said they are continuing to investigate the burglary, and anyone with information is encouraged to contact them at (360) 337-7101.
