There are many bring-a-child-to-work days, but none like what police in this Seattle suburb say they encountered early Monday — a 10-year-old boy watching his father and two other men burglarize motor vehicles.
Police said they were summoned about 3 a.m. by a resident who reported seeing three men breaking into cars at the Emerald Hills apartment complex.
Officers found three men in the parking lot as well as two vehicles that had been reported stolen, one containing items that were found to have been reported stolen in previous car prowls. Many of the items were returned to their owners, police said.
Three men were arrested — a 30-year-old from Marysville, a 25-year-old from Everett and a 19-year-old from Marysville.
Police did not say which was the father of the boy but added that he knew what his father and the others were doing. He was returned to his mother, and police said they were contacting state Child Protective Services, which could investigate further.
