A 32-year-old Marysville man was arrested by Arlington police Thursday, April 26, in connection with a string of six commercial burglaries in Arlington.
The arrest was prompted when a citizen reported a suspicious-looking man walking around during the day wearing dark clothes and with his face hidden.
Police served a search warrant at the Arlington motel where the suspect had been staying. Police were able to recover additional evidence including stolen property and drugs.
The suspect was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of six felony counts of Burglary in the Second Degree. Additional charges will be referred to the Snohomish County Prosecutor's Office for review. Bail has been set at $300,000.
The man is suspected of being responsible for dozens of other break-ins throughout Snohomish, King and Skagit counties.
Burglary in the Second Degree is a Class B felony, punishable by confinement in a state correctional institution for a maximum term of ten (10) years, or by a maximum fine of $20,000, or a combination of the two.
