Police want to talk to 'Spider-Man' who stole their camera

EDMONDS — Based on a screen shot, detectives can rule out Peter Parker as the thief who stole a surveillance camera from outside the Edmonds Police Department in July, but the suspect did have some Spider-Man agility.

Thursday, police posted on Twitter a 44-second video clip of a man pulling the camera from the building.

“So funny story,” police wrote in a Tweet that accompanied the video. “We had our surveillance camera taken by the EPD Superfan. Explaining this to the Chief was a touch awkward & we would like to share the experience with this local tech squad aficionado.”

In a second Tweet that included a still shot of the bearded suspect, Detective Ryan Speer wrote: “Let’s talk.”

The camera — one of many outside the police station — was stolen at 9:09 p.m. July 10. It was near a door that’s down some steep stairs in an area around the station that doesn’t generate much foot traffic, said Edmonds police Sgt. Shane Hawley.

“We don’t think this guy damaged the building,” Hawley said. “He kind of looks up and climbs up and goes right after the camera. He basically ripped it down and dumped it in some bushes. It is kind of an oddball deal.”
