Burglar escapes from Poulsbo McDonald’s with undisclosed amount of money

POULSBO — Employees of the McDonald’s at 20533 Viking Ave. NW interrupted a burglary when they arrived at work at about 5 a.m. Jan. 4.

Poulsbo Deputy Chief Andy Pate said the burglar gained access to the building through a drive-through window, broke into the safe, and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The burglar was described as a “white male wearing a dark gray or black hoodie,” Pate said.

A “vehicle of interest” was seen leaving the parking lot about the same time, Pate said.

According to eyewitnesses, the vehicle was a white, older “station wagon,” like a Subaru Forester, with dark trim down the sides and “lots of items in the back like he might have been living in the car,” Pate said.

Pate said the number of burglaries were up all over the county during the holiday season.

“It’s typical for this time of year,” he said.

Anyone with information about the person or car should contact the Poulsbo Police Department, 360-779-3113, and ask to speak to a detective. Or they can call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. Individuals may choose to remain anonymous; Crimestoppers does offer a reward if the suspect is arrested and prosecuted.
