Almost six hours after the King County Sheriff’s Office asked the public to help them track down a prowler near an unincorporated area of Sammamish, police report that the suspect was arrested near Fall City Oct. 17.
There was probable cause to arrest Shayne C. Kennedy for possession of stolen property, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office. Kennedy is described as a white male, 41 years old, 6 feet tall and approximately 190 pounds. He has long reddish blond hair, often pulled back in a ponytail.
Police specifically mentioned the Duthie Hill Park area and the 30000 block of Southeast Issaquah-Fall City Road as areas he had roamed.
A neighbor called 911 after seeing the male that fit the description and deputies and a K-9 unit responded and found Kennedy in the woods. He was taken into custody at 5:40 p.m.

District unveils remodeled Liberty High School
The new Liberty High School building is sleek, modern and almost industrial in its appearance.
Past Liberty students would hardly recognize it as the same school, but some internal touches, most importantly a can’t-miss banner inscribed with the words “Proud to be a Patriot,” bring familiarity and warmth to the newly remodeled campus.
The Issaquah Chamber of Commerce and Issaquah School District partnered to unveil the new Liberty at a ribbon-cutting ceremony Oct. 10.
