Police arrest burglars suspected of hitting 100 homes

An incredibly prolific crime spree likely came to an end Sunday when a team of local law-enforcement officers arrested two men suspected of burglarizing more than 100 homes in the Puget Sound area.

According to the Mercer Island Police Department, the regional investigation team arrested the 20-year-old and 24-year-old Puyallup residents shortly after a burglary Sunday afternoon in the 7600 block of 85th Place Southeast on Mercer Island.

The duo have been under investigation for weeks for 100 or more burglaries stretching from King County to Thurston County, according to police.

The investigation will continue in the coming weeks in the hopes of connecting even more victims to the two burglars.
