Officers caught a daytime Queen Anne burglar after she jumped from an upstairs window.  On September 8th at approximately 1:12 p.m. officers responded to a 911 complaint of two suspicious persons in an alley in the 100 block of West McGraw Street.  At 1:14 p.m. a witness called 911 to report a female suspect breaking the window glass on the back of a residence in the 100 block of West McGraw Street.  A short time later the homeowner arrived home to find his front door ajar and the female suspect upstairs.  When the suspect saw the homeowner she jumped out the upstairs window and was promptly arrested by a uniformed patrol officer who had arrived moments earlier.  Additional officers searched the exterior and interior of the house to include the surrounding neighborhood but were unable to located the suspect’s accomplice.

The 36-year-old female suspect was booked into the King County Jail for Burglary.
