West Seattle Crime Watch: Jessica Detrick charged in two burglaries

20160718170954

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.”

    I don’t understand why she’s still allowed to be causing the people in this county so much grief. She can be “inconvenienced” with short stays in jail now and then, and some fines which apparently don’t deter her, but the owners of those 38 homes she “allegedly” burglarized are expected to just accept that as her punishment?   What ever happened to justice in this country?

    KD,

    Nice vague Animal House reference. Seems like a good candidate for incarceration.

      FWIW, the 38 warrants/cases were not all related to burglary. The charging docs note her convictions include attempted burglary, possession of stolen property, robbery, drugs, prowling, theft, prostitution, assault, and criminal trespass.

    Gee,  do you think prosecutors? !

    Westside45; honestly, I don’t know what ‘Animal House’ reference you are referring to! (Did I make a funny?!!) I just was stating how I felt. What was said in the movie?

    Girl needs to find a new gig.

    Looks like the person that broke into our vehicle twice last March/April.  We caught her on video with the dog and gave to SPD, they did nothing.

    I think I found her FB profile – pics look like pic of her above.    Last post was in 2012 about her father finally getting housing and “pray he does not mess this one up…”  She refers to him wanting to get his life together since she had a baby 8 months earlier.

    The point of all this cyber-stalkie info sharing is that it appears this life of petty crime is all she knows, how she was raised and (unfortunately for all society) how she’s raising her now 4-5 year old daughter.  Ironically she lists her occupation as “stay at home mother”…. I guess “Petty Thief and Trespasser” is offputting when sending out “friend requests”

      If you look at our previous coverage and keep following the links, we noted that she first was “featured” on WSB in 2013, at which time she was described as pregnant. (The man she was with at the time and who is mentioned in that story and others, Sean Jeardoe, has since gotten out of prison and then gotten into trouble again, but there is no indication that he is still involved with her – he was with another woman when arrested outside WS earlier this year.) – TR

    We had her on video too- she grabbed our dog’s toy & leash from the yard, but left after looking through the windows.

Sorry, comment time is over.
