Edmonds man allegedly stole items from his grandmother

ARLINGTON — An Edmonds man has been accused of stealing tools and sports memorabilia from his grandmother.

The man, 25, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of theft and more than a dozen counts of trafficking in stolen property.

Among the items stolen were small statues of baseball Hall of Famers Whitey Ford and Brooks Robinson, a framed and autographed photo of all-time strikeout leader Nolan Ryan and a plaque with a photo of long-time Seattle Mariner Ken Griffey Jr.

The woman said she allowed her grandson and his girlfriend to move into her Arlington home in January. Soon after, things started to disappear.

She provided a list to detectives that included chain saws, grass trimmers, power tools, compact discs and the sports collectibles.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office discovered some of the goods had been dealt to pawn shops.
