Bellevue Police are on the lookout for a burglar who likes to shop with a pet Pomeranian dog under her arm.
On Aug. 12, a residence near Bellevue Square was burglarized, and approximately $13,000 in property was stolen including electronics and jewelry. Later that morning, a woman used the victim's stolen credit card at the Bellevue Square Nordstrom. She wore a sun dress, brought her Pomeranian dog with her and told the clerk she was just heading home from church.
The suspect is described as a white woman, approximately 32 to 35 years old, brown hair, 5'2" to 5'5", and 130 to 140 pounds. She was wearing at the time of the theft a white, black and purple sundress, and carrying a white purse along with the dog. (sketch)
A second suspect is described as a white man, approximately 30 years old, 6'0", medium to thin build, and bald head with a thin face.
In similar burglaries in Seattle, male and female burglary suspects were captured on video using credit cards stolen from a residential burglary. The card was used at several locations throughout North Seattle and Renton. The woman is carrying a Pomeranian and appears to be the same suspect as the one in the Bellevue case. (video stills)
The suspect vehicle appears to be a dark colored 1990s Chrysler Sebring.
If anyone has information on these suspects or can identify either one, please contact Detective Jim Lindquist (425-452-7653 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
