Redmond Police: Increase in Education Hill Residential Burglaries

Since June 1, 24 residential burglaries have been reported in Redmond's Education Hill District. The incidents have occurred near NE 100th St., from approximately 160th Ave. NE to 180th Ave. NE.

In most cases, the burglars have gained access inside homes through garage doors or by removing window screens. In many cases, the windows were unsecured.

  • Thin black male
  • Individual with small feet and heeled shoes (possibly a woman with dress shoes)
The individual(s) may knock on doors with a false story to case houses before the burglaries. Stolen property includes jewelry, money, laptops, iPads and electronics that were taken from all areas of the residences.
Investigators are following up on leads. The Redmond Police Department reminds residents to store their property, including using secured safes for firearms and special belongings. The department offers free assessments of city residents' houses for suggestions on how to make their homes less likely targets for burglars. Please contact for information about arranging a meeting.

Keep a record of serial numbers, as it greatly increases recovery chances. City of Redmond recently teamed with TrackMole, a free service where property owners can track property using items' serial numbers.
Please report any suspicious activity to 911 as it is occurring.
