Mother suspected of using her son to burglarize a Lynnwood home

Police say a woman used her 10-year-old son to help her break into a Lynnwood home Tuesday afternoon.

Our news partners at The Seattle Times have the details:

The 33-year-old woman told her son to climb into the window of a home in the 20800 block of 59th Place West on Tuesday and let her into the house, according to an affidavit of probable cause that outlines the police case.

A stolen computer, some identification and a $2 bill, which was taken from a child’s room, were found either in the woman’s purse or in a backpack the pair allegedly left outside the home, the affidavit said.

Police said the woman has three other children between the ages of 7 and 11, and the family was staying at a Highway 99 motel in Lynnwood.

All four children, including the 10-year-old boy, are now staying with another relative, according to state Child Protective Services.

Police also allegedly found possible drugs and a plastic tube in the woman’s purse.

According to the affidavit, the woman orignially claimed she and her son were at the home to retrieve a lost ball.
