Two burglary suspects caught here early this morning – plus a quick look at recent home burglaries



Seattle Police say a quick response to a 911 call of a burglary in progress this morning led to the arrest of two men fleeing the scene in a silver Jaguar.

The call came at 5 a.m. from the 8300 block of Fifth Avenue Northeast, police say.

Officers quickly located and stopped the suspect vehicle. Both adult male suspects were removed from the vehicle and detained without incident. The complainant/witness was brought to the stop location and positively identified the suspects. The suspect vehicle appeared to contain stolen property.

The most common crimes here are breaking into or stealing cars. There was a rash of home burglaries last winter, but they had slacked off last time we looked in early August.

  1. The unfortunate thing about 5th ave is that its a straight shot for all the Northgate punks into Maple Leaf.

    We all just need to look out for our neighbors more. And remember to not place things of interest in visible areas when no one is home. Ex. Laptops on kitchen tables, booze on counter tops, GPS is car, etc….. I know its not an option for everyone, but my big dog roaming the house freely during the day helps if anyone tries to look into the windows or sliding back door. There are a few options for alarms that you can hook up to horns that are not monitored so you don’t have to pay the monthly monitoring fee from a place like ADT. They are still effective because they are loud and will scare the person away and hopefully draw attention to neighbors who could see the person or the vehicle involved.

    I have thought about mounting a camera looking down at my back door and putting a note on the door telling any potential burglar to smile big for the camera.

  2. Let’s hope it IS the same silver Jaguar/perp as the Capitol Hill crime. They shot a man up there. Thankfully w/non-life threatening injuries. Victim said he thought they were drugged out “tweakers”…

  3. I realize crime is down, but just look at all those robberies! Is it too much to expect even *lower* property crime rates? I mean, at this rate, pretty soon 10% of all properties in Maple Leaf will have been robbed at least once within a five year period or something. Why is such a high, though “lower,” rate still acceptable?
