A Seattle Pacific University security guard approached an officer and let them know they had seen a man leaving the area just before officers arrived at the home, pointing them towards a car parked in a near-by lot.

Officers booked the suspect into King County Jail for investigation of burglary. Burglary detectives are now seeking a warrant to search the suspect’s vehicle and recover any stolen property that may be inside.
