According to The Seattle P-I, the 50-year old male suspect who police say has committed more than 30 “smash-and-grab” style burglaries in the Burien/West Seattle area made his first court appearance Thursday after his arrest early Wednesday.

His bail was set at $150,000.

According to reports, on Wednesday morning around 2am, police responded to an alarm at Huff Motor Sports in the 15821 block of First Ave South in Burien. A witness told police that he saw a man wearing a blue shirt and tan pants running from the scene, carrying a cash register.

On Thursday, that same witness identified the suspect in court, police said.

Washington State Patrol records show that the suspect has a record, including a previous felony conviction for attempted residential burglary, two felony convictions for burglary and a conviction for felony theft in 1991. He also has felony convictions for forgery and drug possession, along with numerous aliases.

    The West Seattle Blog scooped ya. There is a picture of him and the little story about his escapades. Let’s hope he stays far away from Burien after a considerable stay in prison. Maybe we should keep the picture handy.
