Burglar arrested in South Delridge neighborhood

On March 5th at approximately 11:30 pm, Southwest Precinct officers responded to a 911 call of an unknown person trying the door handle to the backdoor of a house in the 7900 Block of 18th Avenue Southwest.  The suspect was trying to open the backdoor and the residents did not know the person.  Officers arrived quickly and contacted the suspect.  He was taken into custody.  The suspect, a 48 year old male, had an outstanding Department of Corrections warrant for VUCSA, as well as a narcotics pipe in his possession.  The pipe tested positive for methamphetamine, so the suspect was booked into the King County Jail for burglary, VUCSA, and the outstanding warrant.
