Kirkland police arrested a residential burglar at around 8:45 a.m. Tuesday in the North Finn Hill neighborhood.

A neighbor saw a man in his 20s walking around the back of a house. When the resident of the house came home, they saw a broken window and alerted police.

Lt. Mike Murray with the Kirkland Police Department said after officers arrived, they set up a perimeter around the 9700 block of N.E. 142nd St. and witnessed the suspect come out from another home’s backyard.

Police arrested the man based on the description they were given and the neighbor who initially saw the suspect positively identified him.

The suspect had broken the back door of the homes and filled a backpack full of items.
