Queen Anne

Intruder leaps from upstairs window, gets arrested

SEATTLE (AP) - A woman spotted inside a house in Seattle's Queen Anne neighborhood in a daytime break-in may need to practice her cat burglar skills.

Police say that when she was spotted by the returning homeowner, the intruder jumped from an upstairs window - right into the handcuffs of a patrol officer.

Detective Jeff Kappel says police had responded Sunday afternoon to 911 calls about two suspicious people in an alley and then a report of a woman breaking a window at the back of a house.

Police searched the house and surrounding neighborhood but were unable to locate the second person.

Kappel says the 36-year-old woman was booked into jail for investigation of burglary.
