Mother allegedly used son, 10, in Lynnwood burglary

LYNNWOOD -- Police believe a woman enlisted her 10-year-old son to help commit a burglary in Lynnwood earlier this week, according to court papers.
The mother and son were detained after a homeowner at another house told Lynnwood police it appeared the pair were trying to break into her home.
When police contacted the pair, one of them walked over to a bush and placed a bag on the ground, court papers said. The bag contained account and credit card information belonging to a Lynnwood man.
Police also found a computer belonging to the man in the woman's purse, court papers said.
The boy led police to a home that had been broken into in the 5000 block of 212th St. SW. Police found an open window.
The woman, 34, was arrested for investigation of burglary and attempted burglary in connection with the Tuesday incidents.
She was booked into the Snohomish Count Jail for other investigations of burglary, trafficking in stolen property, drug possession and identification theft. She also had arrests warrants for theft and retail theft.
Among other things, she's accused of participating in an identification theft that resulted in a couple having $13,000 falsely charged to their credit cards, according to court records.
Child Protective Services was contacted after the arrests. The boy and three siblings had been staying with her at a motel. The children were turned over to their father, court papers said.
