SEATTLE - Caught red-handed, a burglary suspect walked right in to the hands of officers early Sunday morning as they waited for him outside of a downtown Seattle building.
Officers were called to the old Troy Laundry facility in the 300 block of Fairview Avenue North just after 5:20 a.m. after receiving a 911 call of a burglary in progress.
Detective Jeff Kappel of the Seattle police says responding officers surrounded the building and waited for the suspect to appear. As the 50-year-old man walked outside one of the doors he was instantly met by police and handcuffs.
Police believe the suspect tampered with the alarm system on the property before he was caught.
The building is eventually going to be torn down and replaced with new office towers.
The incident remains under investigation.
