Suspects in South Seattle Burglaries Arrested After Break-In at Rainer Ave Poké Shop

Detectives are investigating two men for a spree of burglaries in the South Precinct after tracking a stolen iPad to a south Seattle home.

Around 8 AM Tuesday, police were called to a Poké restaurant in the 5300 block of Rainier Ave after employees arrived and found the front door had been pried open.

Police reviewed security camera footage, which showed two men breaking into the building before stealing several iPads and cash from the store’s registers.

Detectives worked with an employee to track one of the iPads to the 4800 block of South Raymond Street, less than a mile away from the restaurant.

Police waited until the suspects emerged from a home, took them into custody and found one of them was carrying to other iPads that belonged to the restaurant.

Both suspects, who are 18-years-old, were booked into the King County Jail on four counts of burglary.

Detectives believe the two men are tied to a number of burglaries in the South Precinct since August 11th and are investigating.
