Church Burglar caught and arrested in North Seattle

On February 21st at approximately 4:05 a.m. officers responded to an alarm at a church located in the 1400 block of NW Leary Way.  Officers arrived on scene and discovered a door ajar and subsequently searched the building.

Officers located an adult male suspect hiding under a desk.  The suspect had attempted to disable the alarm by pulling it out of the casing and smashing it.  He must have thought he was successful…but he wasn’t.

The suspect was booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary.
