Police: Man hid from cops in attic of Alfy’s Pizza in Everett

He’s also suspected of calling in a false burglary report to try and make the police leave.

EVERETT — An alleged burglar hid in the attic of Alfy’s Pizza to get away from law enforcement early Monday morning, according to a statement from the Everett Police Department.

Police were dispatched to the restaurant on North Broadway when an alarm in the roof hatch was tripped. Officers found a pallet propped up against the building, and security footage showed a man crawling around, Everett police say.

Inside the building, officers saw that money from the till was missing, as well as signs that someone had climbed into the attic. They sent a police dog to search for the suspect.

The man reportedly made his way to the roof, where officers saw him peeking over the edge. Police got onto the roof using an Everett Fire Department bucket truck and arrested him.

He was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of burglary and false reporting. He’s suspected of calling in a residential burglary and kidnapping at another location in the city, while officers were setting up around Alfy’s.
