Officers Arrest Two Burglary Suspects at Businesses in Ballard, Fremont

North Precinct officers made two separate burglary arrests early Tuesday morning in Ballard and Fremont.

At approximately 3:45 am, officers responded to an alarm call at a business in the 7500 block of 15th Avenue NW.  Officers were provided a description of a male that had entered the locked building.  As officers arrived at the business, they saw a male matching that description exit the building pushing a power washer.  The 27-year-old man was promptly taken into custody and later booked into the King County Jail for investigation of burglary.

At 6:30 am, officers responded to a report of a burglary at a business in the 43oo block of Leary Way NW.  When officers arrived, they located a 33-year-old male sitting outside of the building drinking beer taken from inside the business.  The suspect admitted to officers that he had broken the window and stolen the beer.  The suspect was arrested and later booked into the King County Jail for investigation of burglary.

Detectives will handle the follow-up investigation on both of these cases.
