Man, 40, suspected of burglarizing store

Police yesterday arrested a 40-year-old Renton man on suspicion of burglary after they caught him leaving a check-cashing store with a crowbar and a flashlight.

At 4:40 a.m. yesterday, officers responded to a 911 call of glass breaking at the Money Tree in the 12400 block of Northeast 124th Street. They saw the man leaving outside a back door and later found he was carrying stolen money from the store, police officials said.

The man is suspected of breaking into a neighboring business to gain access to the Money Tree store. He was booked into the city jail.
