Ballard burglary suspect arrested, one at large

On March 18th at approximately 4:51 a.m. officers responded to a call of a possible burglary in progress inside a  building in the 5400 Block of Leary Avenue NW.  Witnesses called 911 to report that a man was inside the building’s secure parking garage. Officers arrived and confronted two suspects inside the lobby. The suspects fled from the scene, but were chased by the officers. One suspect was caught about a block away. The other suspect continued to run. Officers set up containment and a K-9 unit was called in. Despite the quick response by officers, the second suspect remains at large. The arrested suspect was later booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary and Investigation of Violation of the Uniformed Controlled Substances Act ( felony drug violations).  This remains an active and on-going investigation.
