3 burglaries reported in Wedgwood Wednesday evening

Three burglaries within several blocks of each other in Northeast Seattle’s Wedgwood neighborhood prompted a two-hour search for the suspect Wednesday evening, police said.

Officers responded to the first report of a burglary in the 3000 block of Northeast 97th Street shortly after 7 p.m., according to the Seattle Police Department. While officers were investigating, a second burglary involving a rock thrown through a window was reported in the 3000 block of Northeast 95th Street. Responding officers saw a male wearing all black clothing running into the bushes in front of a house two blocks away. A K-9 unit and helicopter were called to the scene, but the suspect wasn’t found.

A third homeowner, also in the 3000 block of Northeast 97th Street, reported her dining room window had been broken and open around 8 p.m. The woman said it appeared that the suspect didn’t enter the house.

The suspect was described as a white male in his 20s, wearing all black clothing including a dark hooded sweatshirt and a dark bomber-style jacket.
