Neighbors help KCSO catch burglar

Thomas Horton, 31, has been arrested by Kitsap County Sheriffs deputies and charged with first-degree vehicle prowling and burglary of a Poulsbo home.

On Aug. 21 neighbors of a vacant home along the 2200 block of Port Gamble Road saw Horton exiting via its backdoor after he allegedly slept in the residence overnight. The neighbors made contact with Horton, who allegedly stated that he was homeless and had spent the night and was just looking to put air in his bike tires before taking off.

The owner of the residence arrived and found that Horton allegedly had not only broken into the residence but into their vehicle as well. Items in their home and shed had been gone through and were put in the truck bed, they said. Neighbors had noted that the hood of the truck had been propped open.

Prior to the deputies’ and homeowners’ arrival, Horton had fled on a bicycle. A neighbor was able to grab a photo of him and showed it to deputies and the homeowner, who noted that the bike was theirs as well.

Horton was tracked down and arrested and faces a $60,000 bail and jail time.
