North Precinct officers have been busy today — police have made arrests of two different suspects for business burglaries in the area.
The first arrest was at 3:45am, when officers responded to an alarm call at a business in the 7500 block of 15th Ave NW. Using a description of the suspect, police identified the man when they arrived at the scene, and found him leaving the building pushing a power washer. Officers arrested the 27-year-old and he was booked into King County Jail for investigation.
The second arrest was at 6:30am, when officers responded to a burglary at a business in the 4300 block of Leary Way NW. The burglar didn’t seem too worried about getting caught — police found the 33-year-old man sitting outside the building, drinking a beer, which he’d just stolen from inside. He admitted to officers that he’d broken in, and was arrested and booked into King County Jail.
According to SPD, detectives will handle the follow-up investigation on both cases.
