Burglar apprehended by witness after chase

On February 3rd at approximately 1:21 p.m. officers responded to a 911 call of a burglary that had just occurred in the 2000 block of 29th Avenue South.  Residents at the victim house interrupted the burglary and at least one witness chased the suspects as they fled the scene.  That witness chased the two suspects southbound on 29th Avenue South, eventually catching one of the suspects at 30th Avenue South and South Hill Street.  Officers responded to that location and took custody of suspect #1.  Property stolen from the victim’s home was recovered from that suspect.

Officers conducted an area search but were unable to locate the other outstanding suspect, who remains at large.  The 17 year old male  was booked into the Youth Service Center for Investigation of Burglary.  South Precinct Burglary detectives will handle the follow up investigation.
