Cops Catch Burglars In Maple Leaf

SPD:

On March 30th at approximately 12:57 p.m. officers responded to a 911 call of two male suspects that were seen prowling around a house in the 9700 block of 8th Avenue NE.  The unknown suspects were seen going into the back yard and not coming back out at the time of call. 

Officers arrived on scene and set up containment around the home in question.  Officers discovered that the rear door of the residence had been kicked in and was open.  While a search of the residence for suspects was being conducted another patrol officer in the area noticed two males matching the description of the suspects walking down the street several blocks away. 

The officer stopped the two suspects and while waiting for back up to arrive both suspects took off running.  Officers engaged in a foot pursuit through the yards of multiple blocks of houses.  A large area of containment was established utilizing patrol, traffic, and Community Police Team officers, detectives, and Department of Corrections personnel.  Both suspects were eventually captured and placed under arrest.

The adult male suspect was booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary.  The juvenile male suspect was booked into the Youth Service Center for Investigation of Burglary. 

This remains an active and on-going investigation.
