CHS: Man Arrested For Capitol Hill Burglary Is Convicted Murderer

Our news partners at Capitolhillseattle.com have dug up a bit of information on a man arrested for burglarizing a Capitol Hill home last month:

A 36-year-old man police say they caught in the act burglarizing a Capitol Hill home has spent nearly all of his adult life in prison. Convicted of second-degree murder in 1993 at the age of 19, the accused burglar now faces another five years in jail for charges he faces in connection with a February break-in that police say netted four PlayStation games and a small pile of video game cables and equipment.

Guy Lee Bash was arrested by Seattle police after they found him crawling out a window of a home on E. Republican near 19th Ave around 2:30 AM on February 18. According to the police report on the incident, the woman who lived in the home called 911, whispering that there shouldn’t be anybody else in the house but that she could hear somebody inside. Arriving officers said they saw Bash exiting the house in a hurry, his backpack flipping open as he dropped four Playstation 3 video games onto the deck. Inside the pack, police found two wireless PS3 controllers, an HDMI cable and a power cord.
