Seattle Police with the assistance of a K9 unit and King County Sheriff’s Guardian 1 helicopter pursued one burglary suspect who attempted a roof to roof escape after a caller reported a break-in underway in the 400 block of 21st Ave.
Just after 9 PM a 911 caller reported the sound of breaking glass at a 21st Ave house. Police responded and began chasing suspects through the area.
One suspect was taken into custody in an alley of E Alder.
Guardian 1 spotted a second suspect shortly thereafter on a roof of a nearby house.
“He’s [lying] on the roof next to the chimney,” the chopper’s unit reported via East Precinct radio.
The suspect proceeded to leap across the roof of multiple houses in the area as police on the ground pursued the man. After a warning from police, the suspect was removed from the roof and taken into custody, according to police radio.
