Car prowler in baseball flag cape gets arrested

Police have arrested a man suspected in a string of car prowls throughout Ballard.

As per the SPD Blotter, on Monday morning, a 29-year-old woman called police after discovering her Honda Accord had been broken into while parked in a garage in the 2400 block of NW Market St. She said her back window had been smashed and her hairdressing tools for work had been stolen, and that a tire iron had been left behind. Police say the garage surveillance video show that the suspect had draped himself in a San Francisco Giants flag during the break-in.

Based on descriptions of the suspect from other officers who knew him from past contacts, they were able to find the man in the Ballard Commons area later in the day and take him into custody. He is now booked in King County jail for car prowl, and officers will continue to work with prosecutors to determine if any additional charges will be filed.
