Guardian 1 helicopter over Phinney-Ballard is looking for occupied burglary suspect

by | Jan 15, 2016

The King County Sheriff’s Office’s Guardian One helicopter was hovering over Phinney Ridge and Ballard for over an hour this morning looking for a burglary suspect who broke into an occupied home in the 100 block of NW 59th St.

Det. Patrick Michaud told me Seattle Police swarm the area whenever there’s a burglary while someone is home because of the potential for someone to get hurt. He says no one was hurt in this case, and they don’t believe the suspect was armed. The burglar did steal a few items.

SPD also searched using a K-9 officer.
