Suspect arrested after breaking into several Poulsbo homes

Marcus E. Blum’s bail listed at $250,000.

A burglary suspect was arrested early Wednesday morning after allegedly breaking into three homes in Poulsbo.

Poulsbo Police responded just after 3:30 a.m. to Brevik Place to investigate the first burglary. When officers arrived, the resident told them a male subject, later identified as Marcus E. Blum, 28, tried to break into their home by smashing a rear sliding door, according to a Feb. 12 release from the Poulsbo Police Department. The attempt failed and the suspect allegedly fled the area on foot.

PPD officers. with the assistance of deputies from Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, set up a perimeter in the area and began to search for Blum. About a half-hour later, a resident on nearby Nesvik Way called to report a burglary in their home. The resident stated Blum had smashed a window and was confronted by the homeowner.

The intruder stated he was a police officer, but the homeowner told the man that he didn’t believe him and was able to force him from their home. A short time later, Blum smashed a rear slider and entered a third home but fled immediately, making no contact with the resident inside.

Officers eventually caught up with Blum as he climbed up onto the roof of another residence on Nesvik Way. As the suspect stood near the edge of the roof, officers and deputies attempted to talk him down. After about 30 minutes, authorities were able to talk Blum down from the roof and took custody of him without further incident, the release states.

Blum was arrested and booked into Kitsap County Jail for residential burglary and impersonating a police officer with bail set at $250,000.
