Kirkland homeowner follows two men who police say broke into his house

A Kirkland homeowner helped police nab two burglars who broke into his house this morning by following the intruders.

The homeowner returned to his house in the Houghton neighborhood shortly after 10 a.m. to find the two men inside, said Kirkland Police Lt. Mike Murray. After seeing the homeowner, the two men took off “pretty quickly,” said Murray.

The homeowner dialed 911 as he followed the men down the street. He directed police to the burglars, Murray said.

Officers arrived within minutes and arrested the two men for investigation of residential burglary. The homeowner was able to positively identify them.

“We’re real happy he did it in such a way he stayed safe. But we always tell folks not to [follow burglars],” Murray said.
