Burglar caught in the act on Capitol Hill

On June 29th, at approximately 3:00 AM, East Precinct officers responded to a 911 call in the 700 Block of 18th Avenue East.  The caller stated they had just heard glass breaking and had observed a man entering the detached garage in the backyard.

Officers arrived quickly and found the suspect inside the garage.  Officers noted that entry into the garage had been made by breaking a window and reaching inside to open the door.  The suspect had cuts to his hand consistent with breaking a glass pane with his bare hand.  The 30 year old suspect was arrested and booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary.  It did not appear that anything had been taken from the garage.
