Burglary suspect arrested while at hospital for dog bite
A 21-year-old Port Orchard man who allegedly broke into the family home of a friend was arrested two days after the burglary when investigators questioned him at a hospital emergency room where he was treated for a dog bite.
A homeowner in the 11800 block of Fairview Boulevard called 9-1-1 on Friday to report that he arrived home and found someone had forced entry through his front door. The man told Kitsap County sheriff's deputies that a laptop computer, his son's Xbox console and 20 video games, and several other items were missing, according to court charging documents.
The man told deputies he noticed an outgoing call on his home phone that he did not recognize, but his son said the number was for his 21-year-old friend. The father said he hadn't seen his son's friend around recently, but knew he was involved in drug use.
