Police Arrest Three Suspects in Two Separate Burglaries

Officers arrested three suspects on Saturday in two different burglaries, one in Columbia City and another on Capitol Hill.

Police were called to the 2900 block of South Byron Street after a witness saw two suspects breaking into a home. Officers surrounded the house, just as one of the two suspects leapt from the second story of the home and ran. A K9 officer tracked the suspect down to a nearby backyard.

Police then entered the home and found the female suspect hiding in a downstairs closet. Both the 32-year-old man and 48-year-old woman were booked into King County Jail on investigation of burglary.

Later in the evening, a suspect damaged a door and window while breaking into a Capitol Hill home. Officers went to the home in the 900 block of East Thomas Street where the suspect had also threatened one of the residents.

Officers found and arrested 43-year-old suspect and later booked him into King County Jail on investigation of burglary.
