On Sunday, July 10, 2022 at about 10:15 PM Officers responded to a disturbance at a drive through near Front and Alder. The investigation revealed that the suspect approached the drive through window on foot, jumped up and stuck half his body through the window and grabbed dog biscuits off of the counter near the cash register. Then the suspect ran around and tried to get into the building through an open back door, but he was met by an employee.
The suspect head-butted the employee, and was then taken to the ground by the employee who held the suspect there until police arrived. The suspect was booked into the jail for First Degree Burglary. The case is being reviewed by the prosecutor.
Please see the Washington's First Degree Burglary law below:
