The suspect opened a sliding door of a home, but soon after the residents woke up the suspect was scared off, according to MLT PD Public Information Officer Joie Worthen. Mountlake Terrace Police had assistance from Edmonds and Brier police departments as well as the King County Sheriff’s “Guardian One” helicopter.
