Seattle ‘Kayak Burglar’ Caught Wet Handed
A man that has been breaking into house boats with a kayak was caught around Southwest Klickitat Way in Seattle. The robber was spotted by another man in a boathouse that went to the docks to check on a friends boat when he noticed a man in a kayak acting strange according to news reports. That man confronted the suspect which then turned around and pepper sprayed him before jumping into the river to try and get away.
Police eventually fished the wet bandit out of the river and took him to Harboview Medical Center for exposure and some minor injuries. Police think he has been using a kayak to gain access to boats and boat houses to rob.
