Burglary Arrest Sunday Night in Madison Park

A 29-year-old male was arrested last night after he was chased out of a garage in Madison Park by the homeowner.  Officers located the male several blocks away and arrested him.

Shortly after 9:00 pm Sunday, East Precinct officers responded to a report of an interrupted burglary in the 4000 block of East Prospect Street.  Officers met with the homeowner, who stated that he had walked into the garage where he saw an unknown male holding an armful of the victim’s property.  The homeowner stated he chased the suspect for a short distance before calling 911.

The victim provided a description of the suspect.  Officers, along with a K-9 team, began searching the area.  A second call of a suspicious person in the backyard of a residence near 42nd Avenue East and East Galer Street matched the suspect description.  Officers located the suspect, detained him, and he was positively identified as the suspect by the victim.  The suspect was arrested and later booked into the King County Jail for burglary.
