Kirkland police arrested two men after responding Wednesday morning to a report of a possible burglary in progress at a Kirkland residence.

Both men are in custody and face residential burglary charges.

A passerby observed two males with backpacks jump the fence into a yard in the 6000 block of 120th Ave. N.E. just after 10 a.m. and notified police of the activity.

Kirkland police units arrived quickly on scene and observed the two suspects moving items out of the residence. One suspect fled on foot but was caught by a Kirkland police officer after a brief pursuit.

The second suspect was located a short time later by Kirkland’s K-9, Max, and his handler.
