A 25-year-old Olympia man was arrested Sunday morning after officers found him inside the Bigelow House Museum, according to Olympia police.
About 3 a.m., officers went on an alarm call to the museum and found broken glass near the back door, said Olympia Sgt. Dan Wojtech.
Officers then entered the building with a K9 unit and found a man inside. Wojtech said some items had been moved off shelving and onto the floor, including a VCR. Authorities also found a flashlight. Nothing was taken from the museum, Wojtech added.
The man was booked into Thurston County Jail for residential burglary.
According to the museum's website, the Bigelow House Museum is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the early history of Olympia and Washington Territory. It was built in the 1850s and is the oldest residence in Olympia and one of the earliest still standing in the Pacific Northwest.
