Burglar hits Medina home, TV cash taken

A Medina resident was the victim of a daytime burglary Tuesday, April 14. Police say that sometime between 1:30 a.m. and 12:15 p.m., someone entered a residence in the 2000 block of NE 78th NE. No visible forced entry into the house was noticed.

A large screen TV, $1,100 in cash and credit cards were among items taken by the suspect. A neighbor described seeing a slim white male, approximately 5'8" tall, who was clean shaven. The suspect arrived and later departed in what was described as a clean white sedan, similar to a Ford Taurus. The suspect spent at least 30 minutes moving items out of the residence.

Medina police scanned the crime scene for forensic evidence and recovered some prints of value. They will be submitted for comparison to local databases. Shortly after the burglary, one of the victim's credit cards had already been used at a gas station in Bellevue.
