Burien residents catch burglar in the act
According to Burien Police, on the afternoon of July 7th, a Burien resident walking into their house located near the intersection of South 182nd Street and Occidental, heard suspicious noises coming from their neighbor’s house. When the man went to his neighbor’s back yard, he found their sliding back door ajar and looked inside. Within the house was a man rummaging through the owner’s things. When confronted, the suspect fled the scene in a vehicle. Police arrived shortly after and the neighbor as well as a second neighbor were able to give descriptions of the man and provide police with videos they had taken from their cellphones. Police recognized the suspect and were able to detain him that same afternoon. All three witnesses were able to separately positively identify the suspect.
