Carolyn Piksa, the Burien woman suspected of shooting a City of Seattle employee last Friday (March 8; read our previous coverage here) had filed a residential burglary report with the Burien Police last year and reported having firearms stolen, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

On July 10, 2012, Piksa called Burien Police and reported her house in the 1000 block of South 115th had been burglarized while she was at work.

During the investigation, Piksa reported that someone had kicked in her back door, entered her house and stole two handguns, a rifle and other firearm-related accessories, according to police.

There was no mentioned of a dog being killed during the incident.

Police have not recovered the weapons or made an arrest in the case.

Police also said that on December 19, 2012 Piksa’s nephew reported her missing after family she had not checked in with family members for a few days. Piksa’s family said she generally checked in everyday because she was not staying in her home since the burglary occurred in July.

Piksa contacted police on Dec. 20 and reported that she was “fine.”

Also, the King County Prosecutor’s Office reports that a bail hearing was held Monday for Piksa, who waived her appearance in court.

The Court found probable cause for Assault First Degree and set bail at $1 million.

A second appearance is set for March 13, which is also the deadline for a charging decision.
