Jason Sidell: Pet store burglar sought in Snohomish

Police are asking for the public's help to find 51-year-old Jason Sidell.

Snohomish Police officers say he had already been legally trespassed from Bridges Pets when he returned and stole multiple items. That raises the crime from a theft to a Burglary.

Surveillance cameras caught him stealing a Rok Dog leash and putting it on his pet inside the store, then stuffing patches for service dogs into his pockets and other items down his shorts before walking out without paying.
