Repeat burglar Jessica Detrick – known for prowling with her dog in tow – is now charged in two West Seattle burglaries, including the one in which she was caught on a security camera, as shown above.
When we first published that photo on July 18th, after the victim of the burglary in Upper Fauntleroy sent it to us, readers quickly noted the resemblance to the prowler-and-dog video we had published in May, weeks before her arrest in connection with Highland Park/South Delridge cases in June.
Detrick, 36, had been charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass in connection with those June cases, and got out of jail after three days. Since then, as we noted in last month’s story, a warrant had been issued for her arrest due to failure to appear for “day reporting.”
While making a routine check of the jail register early today, we discovered that she had been booked on July 23rd; four days later, she was charged with two counts of residential burglary – for the July 18th Upper Fauntleroy burglary and for a break-in at a home in the 8800 block of 16th SW on June 19th. Her bail is set at $101,000 – $100,000 for the burglary cases, $1,000 for the earlier warrant. Prosecutors asked for the relatively high bail amount, saying that they believe “defendant is escalating her serial (residential) burglary conduct and poses a danger to the community.” The charging documents summarize Detrick’s history as “38 warrants in King County alone since 2000 … multi-state criminal history, including arrest history in Illinois and conviction and warrant history in Arizona.”
