Alert neighbor and quick response by officers thwart burglary

On 6/26/11, at approximately 10:20 a.m., an alert neighbor in the 5600 block of S. Bangor reported seeing a male breaking out the window of her neighbors’ home. The complainant also reported seeing the suspect taking two flat panel televisions and other items from the residence.

Officers quickly arrived and confronted the suspect in the fenced area of the residence. A foot pursuit ensued, and after a relatively short period of time, the suspect was found hiding in sticker bushes a couple of blocks away from the scene.

The suspect was taken into custody without incident, and later booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary.
