• 3 taken into custody in 2 separate burglaries


    SEATTLE - Three people were taken into custody Saturday in connection with two separate burglaries, said the Seattle Police Department.


    The first burglary happened before 1:30 a.m. when two officers were dispatched to a home in the 1400 block of 35th Avenue.


    Police said over $4,000 worth of items were stolen, which included an Apple Mac Book with a tracking application.


    With the help of the victim, officers tracked the stolen computer to a Best Western hotel in downtown.


    When officers arrived at the hotel, they attempted to contact the occupants inside a room. When no one responded, officers contained the room while another obtained a search warrant.


    A 21-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman came out of the room and were taken into custody.


    Police said the officers located the stolen computer, along with an electronic read book and a jacket with a security tag still attached.


    The man and woman were arrested and booked into the King County Jail.


    The second burglary happened at a construction site in the 700 block of Dexter Avenue North.


    Police said officers responded to the location after a report of a burglary and security cameras at the site showed a man inside the fenced-off area.


    When officers arrived, they searched the area and one officer saw the man standing on the property.


    After the officer identified himself, he ordered the man to exit the property, but he climbed the fence and then was taken into custody by officers.


    Stolen property was later discovered next to where the man was standing and inside a car near the location.


    The man was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of burglary, and detectives will handle a follow up investigation.
