An observant neighbor called 911 after seeing a suspicious man in the backyard of his neighbor’s home in the Blue Ridge community earlier this week.
On Wednesday just after 12:30 p.m., police responded to the house in the 18400 block of 71st Ave. W and contacted a man walking in the area with the same description as the burglar.
The suspect, a 26 year-old Lynnwood man, was found with a backpack full of burglary tools and was identified by the neighbor as the man who was trying to break in his neighbor’s home.
The suspect was arrested and booked into the Snohomish County jail for attempted residential burglary.
Police are checking to see if this suspect is connected with any other burglaries in the area.
