Kirkland Police Catch Daytime Residential Burglars


Kirkland police arrested two adult males after responding this morning on a report of a possible burglary in-progress at a residence located in the 6000 block of 120th Ave NE.  A passerby observed two males with backpacks jump the fence into a yard just after 10:00am and notified police of the activity.  Kirkland police units arrived quickly on-scene and observed the two suspects moving items out of the residence.  One suspect fled on foot but was caught by a Kirkland police officer after a brief pursuit.  The second suspect was located a short time later by Kirkland’s K-9 “Max” and his handler.  Both men are in custody and facing residential burglary charges.  This is a great example of how an observant citizen can partner with their local police department and make all the difference in putting two criminals in jail.
