‘Prolific’ burglary suspect active around Hill busted in California

A suspected burglar known for breaking into homes while occupants slept and who was allegedly active in the area around the eastern edges of Capitol Hill was taken into custody in California this week along with a suspected accomplice, according to Seattle Police.

Shaka Barquet, 25, was wanted on a felony warrant for what police say was a “prolific” burglary spree that targeted homes on E Galer, E Pine, in North Seattle and possibly into the Central District and South Seattle.

Police say Barquet “committed identity theft and fraud, using credit cards stolen during the burglaries.”

Both suspects are currently in jail in California awaiting extradition.
