Two Capitol Hill Condo Burglars Caught, Stolen TV Recovered

On Wednesday, August 15th, a victim called police to report a burglary at a condominium building located in the 1400 block of Boylston Avenue.  Two suspects, a man and a woman, entered a common area inside the building where they stole a large, 72″ wall mounted  flat screen television.  This burglary occurred at approximately 3:00 am, but wasn’t discovered until hours later.  An officer took the report and obtained video surveillance footage from the building.

The following day the victim observed the female suspect return to the building and called police.  Officers responded and arrested the 29-year-old female without incident.

Detectives from the Major Crimes Task Force (MCTF)  interviewed the suspect, and she was later booked into the King County Jail.  The 26-year-old male suspect was identified and detectives discovered that he was already in the Snohomish County Jail on unrelated warrants.  During that arrest, the suspect was armed with a handgun.

Today, a detective responded to the Snohomish County Jail where the suspect was interviewed.  He provided information as to the location of where the stolen television was stored.  The detective and Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputies recovered the television and returned it to the victim.  The detectives will refer this case to the King County Prosecutor’s Office for charges.
