Officers Arrest Dentist Office Burglary Suspect, Searching for Second

Officers arrested a burglary suspect and are searching for a second after the pair broke into a Crown Hill dentist’s office.

A woman called 911 Monday at 9:10 p.m. after receiving an alarm notification from her office in the 1400 block of Northwest 85th Street.

When police arrived they found the rear door had been broken and could hear a person inside. The suspect exited the building and began to walk away, ignoring the officer’s orders to stop.  The  22-year-old male suspect then attempted to run but was captured a block away.

Officers searched the man and found documents taken from the office as well as cameras and narcotics believed to be taken from the office.

Officers reviewed the surveillance video from the office and saw a second person inside the building who was not found by officers.  Police described the unknown suspect as a white male, 5 feet 10 inches tall, and 170 pounds wearing a blue hat and a dark blue coat.

If you have any information in this case please call the non-emergency line at (206) 625-5011 and request to speak with an officer.
