BELLINGHAM – An attempted home burglary ended abruptly Thursday morning, July 28, when the intruder was confronted by the resident with a gun.
About 5:40 a.m., a man used a burglary tool to open a ground-level window at a house owned by a couple in the 4300 block of Samish Crest Lane, said Bellingham police spokesman Mark Young. The lights in the house were on and a car was parked in the driveway.

No shots were fired, nobody was injured and nothing was stolen. Read more
