ARLINGTON — A man reportedly tried to steal $750 worth of computers from Post Middle School early Monday morning and caused $6,400 worth of damage in the process.
A silent alarm called Arlington police to the scene around 1 a.m. Monday, according to documents filed in Snohomish County Superior Court. Officers arrested the man for investigation of second-degree burglary and second-degree theft, plus a few other offenses.
Once police arrived at the school, they noticed a flashlight shining in one of the buildings.
“While waiting for a K-9 to respond, a subject exited the building with his arms full of computers,” reads a post on the Arlington Police Department’s Facebook page.
He tried to run but tripped, according to a police report.
The suspect, 26, allegedly tried to steal iPads, laptops and an Apple desktop computer. He told police he used a screw driver to break in and that “any broken door handle on the building was from him,” court records say.
Police noted that eight door handles were broken. An Arlington School District employee who came to the scene said each would cost around $800 to fix.
As police talked with the man, he reportedly admitted he was trying to steal because he is addicted to drugs. Documents show the man is homeless. He lives in Arlington.
Besides burglary and theft, the man is being accused of malicious mischief and possession of burglary tools, as well as obstruction because the man ran after police told him to get on the ground, and he “hindered and delayed my investigation,” an officer wrote.
Online court records show he’s been convicted of multiple felonies in the past five years, including residential burglary, theft of a motor vehicle and possession of stolen property.
He was booked into the Snohomish County Jail around 3
TVSpy told you last week about WIS anchor Kamie Jo Roesler, who was arrested in Sioux Falls, S.D. and charged with aggravated assault after allegedly smashing a beer bottle over someone’s head.
Now, the anchor’s biography has been removed from the website of the station based in Columbia, S.C.
Managers from WIS have not gone public about whether or not Roesler, who had anchored the station’s Sunrise morning newscast, remains at the station. TVSpy’s requests for comment have so far gone unanswered.
Roesler was arrested in Sioux Falls, N.D., her former market, around 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 27. Police said Roesler, a former KSFY anchor, was in the midst of a heated political argument with a man she knew when she smashed a beer bottle over the man’s head.
The anchor is facing one count of aggravated assault, which could mean up to 15 years in prison if she is convicted.
She has not appeared on air since the arrest. Her last byline at the station was on Sept. 22, and her last post on social media was Sept. 24.

In the wake of reports surrounding the police arrest and apparent suicide attempt of former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, the Trump campaign is quietly disappearing Parscale from its website, the Daily Beast reports.
“Since Tuesday, the campaign has removed a video of Parscale from the homepage of its ‘Army for Trump’ election monitoring operation,” the Beast’s Lachlan Markay writes. “It also deleted a page on the main campaign website featuring a video of Parscale and Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law and senior campaign adviser. The video of their discussion, billed as a Q&A on the state of the campaign, has also been removed from YouTube. Those deletions were first flagged on Twitter by the writer Jeryl Bier.”
Parscale was campaign manager for Trump until he was replaced by former White House political director Bill Stepien in July. Police say this Sunday Parscale’s wife called 9-11 to report that he was threatening to commit suicide and had loaded a firearm in front of her. She also claims he physically assaulted her.
A separate report claims Parscale is accused of “stealing” up to $40 million from President Trump’s campaign and $10 million from the Republican National Committee, but a spokesperson for the Trump campaign denies Parscale is facing an internal investigation.
