Law Enforcement from all over Snohomish County launched a massive search in Granite Falls for a burglar that fired at cops and took off into the woods. Authorities launched a search by air and on the ground near Menzel Lake Road in hopes of finding the suspect; some believe it may be the notorious teen thief Colton Harris-Moore.

After looking all night and most of today for now the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office says the burglar disappeared in the woods behind Menzel Lake Road. Deputies called off the search late Monday afternoon.

Neighbor Tanya Sellars is concerned because the bad guy got away.

"It's kind of scary to know that he's still out there and anything can happen, it's just really freaky," said Sellars.

Authorities spent about 20 hours searching for the suspect in the woods just outside Granite Falls. Deputies say the woods are very dense which made their search difficult on the ground and by air.

Roads were closed today while Swat teams looked through the forest and a chopper search by air Monday. But, the roads reopened in the afternoon. Steve Sellars says it wouldn't be difficult for the burglar to give the cops the slip.

"It's really easy to hide out here, because you can disappear in the underbrush. It's not surprising they couldn't find him," said Sellars.

This all started last night when cops received reports that a burglar broke into a home at 8 PM on Menzel Lake Road near Granite Falls. Burglary victim Bob Gleyre says the crook took specific items from his home.

"It was all survival things that were taken, the comforter off our bed, easy grab foods," said Gleyre.

Deputies hit the woods behind the home to find the suspect. They located some of the stolen items. Then the unexpected happened according to Bob Gleyre.

"I walked into the house and heard a gunshot and walked back out and they were gone I was dumb-founded," said Gleyre.

No Officers were injured. Speculation is building that the burglar could be Colton Harris-Moore. Authorities say the teen has hit several home and could be responsible for stealing several planes including one that was ditched in the woods near Granite Falls last week. Rebecca Hover with the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office says it's an angle of the investigation they're exploring.

"But, until we find something substantial or see this person we can't say it is or isn't him," said Hover.

The Sheriff's Office says it will have extra deputies patrolling the area. They're urging all neighbors to keep their homes and cars locked up.
