Dog helps end burglary spree from Queen Anne to Magnolia

Posted on May 30th, 2010 by Sara Willy

A black lab named Ben helped stop a burglary early this morning at a home in the 3000 block of 38th Ave West in Magnolia.  Now, it appears the suspects in that case are also responsible for a series of burglary calls early today around Queen Anne.

KING 5 led their 5pm newscast with the story tonight, interviewing the Armantrout family. They told KING their dog started barking at two teenage burglars who were trying to pry open the back door. The homeowner chased the teens on foot. Seattle Police later caught both of them. Investigators believe the suspects were involved in a series of break-ins and alarm calls early today. Most of the calls came from an area on Queen Anne near McClure Middle School. Photo courtesy of KING 5.
