West Seattle Crime Watch: Burglary suspect caught

(WSB photo)
9:26 AM: Thanks to the texter who let us know about a police search with K-9 in the Belvidere area this morning. We’ve tracked down the details of what happened: Two people were reported to have broken into a house under renovation in the 2400 block of Prescott (map) this morning and stolen some items including tools; the contractor reported it, and it was a fresh-enough report that police were able to get a track. Officers at the scene tell us they arrested one suspect a few blocks away, while another one remains at large. The investigation is still active and we hope to have a few more details later.

5:48 PM UPDATE: We checked with the SPD media-relations office before day’s end. The full written report on this case isn’t in yet, so the only new detail available is that some “items” apparently were recovered at the location where the suspect was found. We’ll check again tomorrow to see if the report’s in.

    I live in the area, and saw the police clearly searching for someone this morning when I left my home. I knew I could count on WSB to learn what was going on. Thank you, SPD – and thank you, WSB, for always letting me know what’s going on in my ‘hood!

    If they were caught I am curious if they will release information as I have reported theft with photos last 12/25 and want to file charges if it is the same person! Any info will help? Thank you.

Sorry, comment time is over.
