On Tuesday, June 11, 2013. Shoreline police officers responded to a commercial alarm at the Smoke Time business at 18820 Aurora Ave N.

As officers arrived, they spotted an individual who saw the officers and ran. Officers pursued him and quickly contained him in an area. With the assistance of an Edmonds K-9 unit, the subject was arrested without incident.

As Officers were interviewing the suspect, he pointed out a passing vehicle and said his friends who helped with the burglary were in the vehicle. A traffic stop on the vehicle resulted in three more individuals being arrested and the vehicle being impounded for a search warrant.

The business owner was quite pleased that the suspects were arrested. With the use of his up-to-date video surveillance system, the suspects are going to have a tough time getting out of this one.

While the Shoreline officers were busy with this burglary, another call came out about a suspicious individual in the front yard of a residence. Luckily, two Kenmore officers (also part of the King County Sheriff's Office) were available to respond and investigate.

As they arrived they took the subject, who admitted to being high on meth, into custody. The Kenmore officers met with the homeowners and discovered that the subject had entered the residence through an unsecured garage door and walked into a bedroom, startling a female who screamed. The man left the residence but didn't get far.

This subject had warrants out for his arrest (Felony DOC- Escape) and told the officers he had recently been released from prison for Residential Burglary.

This was someone that needed to be taken off the streets, and thanks to the quick actions by the Kenmore officers it happened.
