Kirkland Police Officers captured five home burglary suspects within a twenty-four hour period over Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Late Tuesday afternoon, officers responded to a home in the 13400blk of 121st Ave when four male suspects shattered the rear-slider door while the homeowner was at home. The suspects grabbed some items and fled in a vehicle. A Kirkland Police Officer quickly spotted the vehicle and one adult and three juvenile male suspects were taken into custody. Two of the suspects admitted to committing other burglaries in the area. Mid-day Wednesday, a homeowner in the 12300blk of Ne 109th Pl came home to find an adult-male suspect inside her locked garage loading his vehicle with her property. The alert homeowner provided police with a detailed vehicle description and license plate number. A short time later, a Kirkland Police Officer spotted the vehicle and stopped it on Ne 132nd St where the suspect was taken into custody. These are two more great examples of residents partnering with police resulting in suspects being quickly located and arrested.
