Mount Rainier crime spree mystery solved
Thanks to the Mount Rainier police for solving a recent burglary spree! The miscreants hit at least three homes that we know of so far:
- Saturday February 19th in the 4400 block of 30th Street
- Friday March 4th in the 4000 block of 36th Street
- Monday March 7th in the 4000 block of 30th Street
Mount Rainier police caught three male juveniles and charged them with the crimes after one of them confessed.
UPDATE: Mount Rainier City Council Member Brian Knedler would like to point out that this series of crimes was solved thanks to someone who lived near one of the scenes and gave a description of the suspects to police. After the police knew what to look for it was just a matter of time before a little extra surveillance resulted in the arrests. Thanks, Brian.
