Burglary Arrest

At about 1pm this afternoon MRPD officers received a call for suspicious persons in the 3100 block of Webster Street. While searching the area officers discovered the suspects on the front porch of of a house in the 4100 block of Rainier Avenue. Officers stopped the two and upon further investigation determined that the two were in the process of breaking into the home when the officers arrived. The two were found in possession of items that had been stolen in a Brentwood burglary earlier in the day and in possession of a loaded Ruger 45 caliber handgun taken in a Brentwood burglary back in October. The two were arrested and will be preliminarily charged with burglary and possession of the stolen handgun. Custody of the two was transferred to PGPD District I detectives for interrogation and additional charges. The two are being looked at as suspects in the rash of burglaries we have experienced over the past month.
