Kirkland police officers captured five home burglary suspects within a 24-hour period over Tuesday and Wednesday.

Late Tuesday afternoon, officers responded to a home in the 13400 block of 121st Avenue when four male suspects shattered the rear-slider door while the homeowner was at home. The suspects grabbed some items and fled in a vehicle.

A Kirkland police officer quickly spotted the vehicle and one adult and three juvenile male suspects were taken into custody. Two of the suspects admitted to committing other burglaries in the area.

Mid-day Wednesday, a homeowner in the 12300 block of Northeast 109th Place came home to find a man inside her locked garage loading his vehicle with her property. The alert homeowner provided police with a detailed vehicle description and license plate number.

A short time later, an officer spotted the vehicle and stopped it on Northeast 132nd Street where the suspect was taken into custody.
