Salon burglars may be out of Woodinville's hair

There is not points to locate on the map

The King County Sheriff’s Office says the arrest of two burglary suspects yesterday after a break-in at a Woodinville hair salon may have solved a string of similar crimes.

Shortly after 1:15 a.m., a Woodinville police officer saw a suspicious vehicle parked near several businesses.  The officer check and discovered the car’s registered owner was a convicted felon with a history of burglary.  He called for additional officers and sheriff’s deputies.

While checking the businesses, one of the officers saw someone inside Professional Nail and Spa Salon, 14235 Woodinville-Duvall Road. A short time later the rear door of the business opened and the officer yelled at the suspect, who retreated back into the business.

The front door of the salon was then shattered and the two suspects took off running. The first man tumbled down an embankment and was quickly arrested, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The second suspect got in a car and drove off, but he crashed nearby and ran off.  He climbed a tree, where he was found by a police K-9, but not before he jumped from the tree and injured his ankle.

The suspects are both Monroe men, ages 42 and 30, and convicted felons, the Sheriff’s Office said.  They were booked into the King County Jail for investigation of burglary, where they remain. 

The Sheriff’s Office said this was the fifth hair salon burglary in the Woodinville area in the past nine days.
