Seattle Police caught a burglar in the act at the Salvation Army building in the 9500 block of Greenwood Avenue North early Sunday morning.

From the SPD Blotter:

Just after 5:00…, North Precinct officers responded to an alarm call at the Salvation Army in the 9500 Block of Greenwood Avenue North. When they arrived they discovered a broken window. As additional officers responded for containment of the very large building, a suspect was seen fleeing the premises and was quickly apprehended.

Officers continued with their containment and then searched the building for any additional suspects. None were located. Officers discovered that numerous doors had been kicked open, rooms ransacked, and valuables had been positioned near an exit.

Officers processed the scene and the suspect was later booked into jail for Investigation of Burglary.
