4:12 PM: Busy afternoon for police, again. And also for the tipsters who are quick to let us know when they see police cars going by with lights on – thank you. Here’s the latest: Police have taken two people into custody after an in-progress burglary was reported near 47th and Alaska, west of The Junction.
That’s all the details we have after talking to a sergeant at the scene; if we find out anything more, we’ll add it.
ADDED 4:54 PM: A reader texted the photo of the suspects being arrested outside
the a nearby house. (Added: WSB photo of one suspect being walked to police vehicle:)
Scanner traffic indicated some stolen property was recovered.
ADDED 5:17 PM: And here are even more details, just published on SPD Blotter:
A woman called 911 around 3:30 P.M. when she heard the sounds of someone breaking into her home in the 4500 block of 47th Ave Southwest. The woman hid in an upstairs closet as officers arrived on scene.
Officers began searching the neighborhood and found both suspects hiding inside a shed about a block away. Police arrested both suspects and found they were carrying a backpack full of stolen property. Officers will book both 20-year-old suspects into King County Jail on investigation of burglary.
