East Pct. officers arrest burglary suspect arrested

On 8/12/11, at approximately 2:00 p.m., officers responded to the 1100 block of E. Terrace St., to a victim reporting that a suspect had just attempted to break into his home.  The suspect took off running when he saw the victim inside the house.  An officer spotted a subject matching the suspect’s description in the nearby area. When the officer attempted contact with the suspect, the suspect fled on foot. The officer gave chase as additional units responded to assist. 

The suspect was then spotted a few times running thru and in-between yards.  Bike patrol officers located the suspect hiding underneath a small vehicle. He was taken into custody without incident. The victim positively identified the suspect. The suspect was in possession of a backpack which revealed evidence of another earlier unreported burglary (stolen lap top and other items). This victim was contacted and a report taken. (His door had been kicked in).

The suspect was later booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary and Possession of Stolen Property.
