Burglar caught and arrested

On February 28th at approximately 2:40 a.m. officers responded to the 100 block of 25th Avenue East to investigate a prowler call.  Witnesses had called 911 to report that an unknown suspect was outside of a residence at that location.  Witnesses heard loud crashing noises and believed the suspect was trying to break into an apartment.  Responding officers located the suspect and took him into custody without incident.

Although the suspect was not successful in breaking into anyone’s apartment, he attempted entry into two units, damaging a glass door in the lower unit and a window in the upper unit.  The suspect also damaged a cable box, a phone box, and a barbecue grill that were outside the building.

The 34-year-old male suspect was booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary.
