Recent Burglary Suspect

February 25, 2019

This individual broke into a home on St. Moritz cul de sac on the Loop Road during the early morning hours of February 25th. The surveilance cameras in the home seemed to have forced the suspect to abort his mission, but not before capturing his face.

More from Q13 News:

King County Sheriff's detectives are asking for the public's help to identify this burglary suspect in the Alpental Ski Area on February 25th. He forced their garage door open, drove what appears to be a Mitsubishi Mirage G4 inside. He loaded up his vehicle with numerous items including an Xbox, ski clothes, Arlo cameras, liquor, gas can and guitar. Another neighbor saw a similar car going up Ober Strasse early this morning around 4 am.

If you know his name or can tell deputies where to find him, submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at or by using the P3 Tips App on your cell phone. You can also call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). It is anonymous. There is a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest in the case.

New Towing Signs

Last weekend a " perfect storm " occurred over the weekend. No, not 3 feet of champagne powder. It was a beautiful sunny weekend, stable snow pack and the opening weekend for ski lessons. Everybody from hikers, cross country skiers, a dog club, skiers/boarders and whatever came up to enjoy our beautiful hang out. One result was parking chaos. It hit us specifically on Ober Strasse with a number of cars parking on our road starting at the bottom and leaving room for only one lane. The good news is that the road was in relatively good shape but I don't have to tell you what if would have been like if conditions were different.

As a result of this experience, we took the step on installing towing signs at the entrances of our roads. Our intent is to inhibit people from parking on the side of our private road AND to put ourselves in position to do something about it ( tow ) if conditions are such that it is necessary to protect our community members and others. The towing company will tow ONLY if authorized by the Board of the ACC so if you come upon a dangerous situation that warrants considering this significant action please notify one of us immediately.

In summary, we want you to know why the signs were installed. Again, it is all about protecting our residents, the ACC and those visiting our neighborhood. This is NOT a step to tow cars that inhibit snow removal. That is important too but we have a well established process of warning and fining to help us make sure we can keep our roads clear and safe during snow removal time.

Please contact the board if you have any questions or input.

2018 will be my fourth winter as a resident of ACC. I love to ski, hike and just hang out in the mountains, so Alpental is a great and natural place for me to be. As you can tell from this picture, I love to spend time in the mountains with my adult children, Brian and Megan. One wonderful thing I've most enjoyed about Alpental is all the cool people I've met that that have been or still are ACC members!

I found home in the Alpental valley in 2011, and I am blessed to build memories on the snow, trails, and around the table with my wife and children. Surrounded by trees, mountains, family and friends, I am truly living my dream. Whether it’s snowskating Alpental in the winter paddling a mountain lake in the summer, or picking huckleberries in the fall, I always find a way to get a smile on my face around here...

Heather, Jessica and I moved to Alpental in 2014. We have two boxers, Dillon and Izzy. They are big and imposing until they get to know you, then they are big lap dogs. We love living up here full time so we can enjoy our mountain life. We go skiing and snowboarding whenever we can as we enjoy being on the hill. Alpental has become our home with all of the great friends we have made up here.
