3 arrested in armed home invasion


Shoreline Police arrested three suspects for multiple crimes including armed burglary and hit and run.


Shoreline Police, Seattle Police, and KCSO’s Guardian One helicopter worked together today to arrest three suspects in a string of crimes including an armed residential burglary in Shoreline.


Shortly after 11 am today, Shoreline Police spotted a suspicious vehicle near NE 170 St and 15 Av NE.  When police tried to stop the white Mitsubishi Eclipse it fled down I-5 into Seattle. A short time later, Seattle Police located the vehicle when it was involved in a three car hit and run collision in Northgate and they apprehended three occupants.  Shoreline Police responded to the collision scene and indentified the vehicle as the same from Shoreline.  By this time, an armed residential burglary had been reported in the 900 block of NE Serpentine Pl, near where Shoreline Police first located the suspicious vehicle. 


The burglary victim called 911 reporting she was home around 11 am when three suspects broke in to the house.  The suspects armed with handguns locked the victim in the closet and fled the house.  


After fleeing from the Shoreline Police that tried to stop them, the suspects were involved in a three vehicle collision near the Northgate exit off I-5.  The suspects fled the crash scene on foot, but were quickly located by Seattle Police and Guardian One.  There were no major injuries in the collision.


The three adult suspects have been taken to the Shoreline Police Station for further investigation into this morning’s incidents.
