Officers responded along with the King County Sheriff’s helicopter Guardian One, which quickly found the suspect who tried to hide in some bushes. As officers converged on him, the suspect began running between houses and jumping fences, and even tried to break into another house and a parked car in an effort to hide/escape. Guardian One remained overhead and called his location out to the officers, who took him into custody as he was hiding in a garden shed. “Not too surprising, it turns out the suspect had a felony warrant for violating his probation,” police said. “We are hoping to get video from Guardian One we can post later on. A big thank you to the neighbor who called us!” Here are some relevant Tweets:
