An intensive search for two burglars in Seattle’s Beacon Hill neighborhood resulted in one arrest Thursday afternoon.
At about noon, a 911 call from a resident of the 4800 block of Columbia Drive South reported two males kicking in the door of a neighbor’s house and going inside.
In an online blog posting, Seattle Police Detective Jeff Kappel said the house they entered was in the 2000 block of South Edmunds Street.
Officers were responding when the caller reported that the suspects had left the house and fled in a green vehicle.
