Burglar who was stuck in chimney going to jail

On February 19th at approximately 5:28 p.m. officers responded with SFD to the 7700 block of Seward Park Avenue South for a man stuck in the chimney of a residence.  Fire department personnel extricated the adult male suspect from the chimney.  He was treated at the scene by SFD Medics and transported to Harborview Medical Center for further evaluation.    

Investigating officers determined that the 23-year-old male suspect had no connection to the residence and had no legal right to be there.  Officers are guarding the suspect at Harborview and will be booking the suspect into the King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary upon his release from the hospital, which is expected soon.
