Seattle man held for string of thefts in Lynnwood
Police allege the man would go into department stores, find an unattended cash register and pry the machine open with a screwdriver. Lynnwood police shared information with investigators around the region, spokeswoman Shannon Sessions said.
Just before 4 p.m. Tuesday, the thief struck at the Alderwood Mall. An employee called 911.
The man ran and jumped into his truck but witnesses got the license plate number, Sessions said.
He was pulled over nearby and booked into jail for investigation for organized retail theft, a felony.
