Burglar caught in the act in South Seattle

On March 26th, at approximately 10:45 PM, two guard for an armored car company were reporting to work at a building in the 5200 Block of East Marginal Way South.  As they entered the building, they encountered a male holding a knife in the hallway.  The guards drew their weapons and detained the suspect. They then called 911.  Officers arrived and took the suspect into custody.  It appears that the suspect had entered the building by breaking a window.  A K-9 also responded to the scene to clear the rest of the building.  No other suspects were found to be inside.  Money from the petty cash drawer was recovered from the suspect.  The 26 year old suspect was later booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary.
