BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A suspect in numerous burglaries of businesses in Bellingham and along the I-5 corridor is in jail this morning.

A Bellingham police spokesperson says officers arrested 44-year-old Douglas Leif Jones at a friends’ home on Victor Street Tuesday morning.

Surveillance video of burglaries in Arlington, Marysville and Mount Vernon that aired on news programs earlier this week led officers to Jones, who lives in Mount Vernon.

He’s suspected in about 25 burglaries in Bellingham and many more in other cities.

Investigators were familiar with Jones, whom they arrested for trafficking in stolen property last march.
