Edmonds PD track burglar with K9 unit
Edmonds Police Units were dispatched to a residential burglary that had just occurred in the 8100 block of Bowdoin Way in the 5 Corners area of Edmonds, Monday afternoon, April 15, at about 1:10 p.m.
A resident had just returned home and noticed a door that had been locked now standing open.
As Officers responded to the area a neighbor observed a subject run from the area of the house. Edmonds Officers started to set up containment and had requested assistance from the Everett Police Department for use of a tracking K9 unit.
Due to the proximity to Chase Lake Elementary and Edmonds Woodway High School, the schools were locked down. This was a preventative measure to keep the K9 tracking area clear while the Everett PD K9 unit tracked the suspect(s).
After approximately 30 minutes of tracking the suspect(s) the K9 unit was unable to locate them.
The schools were released from their lockdown shortly afterwards.
The investigation is ongoing into the burglary.
