Thanks to the WSB’ers who tipped us to a police investigation on 48th SW near SW Findlay in Seaview, reporting police at the scene with guns drawn. One person was detained when we got there; from Seattle Police media relations, Det. Mark Jamieson said it started as a call from someone who heard a knock on the front door and then heard someone apparently trying to break in at the back of the house. Whether or not this will turn out to have been a bonafide burglary attempt, with a full-fledged arrest, he won’t know till the report’s in a bit later, so we will check back. Seaview has been hit hard by burglaries lately; this is just a few blocks from one reported in West Seattle Crime Watch earlier this week, at 46th/Brandon.
POSTSCRIPT: Please see the comments, verifying this was a burglary attempt, with an arrest. We don’t know the suspect’s name, though, so we cannot check on status.
