SPD: Three arrested in two Saturday night burglaries

SEATTLE – Three people were arrested on Saturday after two separate burglaries at homes in Seattle.

The first happened on the 2900 block of S. Byron Street in the Columbia City neighborhood. Seattle Police Det. Drew Fowler said that someone saw two people breaking into a home and called 911. As officers arrived, a man jumped from a second floor balcony and tried to run from the scene.

A K-9 unit tracked down the 32-year-old man, and he was then arrested. A search of the home ended when a 48-year-old woman was found hiding in a closet. She was also arrested, and both were booked into the King County Jail.

Not long after the break-in on Byron, police were called to a home on the 900 block of E. Thomas Street on Capitol Hill. Fowler said that a 43-year-old man had broken into a home, damaging a window and a door, and had threatened a resident of the house. A quick search ended when the man was found, and he was taken to the King County Jail to be booked for burglary.

There were no injuries in either incident.
