Police Find Burglars Hiding in Shed in West Seattle

Officers rushed to the scene of a Genesee Hill  break-in Friday afternoon and arrested two burglars after finding them hiding in a shed.

A woman called 911 around 3:30 P.M. when she heard the sounds of someone breaking into her home in the 4500 block of 47 Ave Southwest. The woman hid in an upstairs closet as officers arrived on scene.

Officers began searching the neighborhood and found both suspects hiding inside a shed about a block away. Police arrested both suspects and found they were carrying a backback full of stolen property.

Officers will book both 20-year-old suspects into King County Jail on investigation of burglary.
