Early Monday morning, Mar. 30, 2020, at about 5 a.m., the Burien Police Department – a King County Sheriff’s Office contract city – got a call that the El Super Pollo (formerly Flapjack’s) restaurant (located at 3806 1st Ave S.) had been broken into.
Police say that a witness watched three males and one female leave the closed restaurant, each with an armful of items. The suspects left in a vehicle and the witness followed them to a nearby business. Deputies responded and discovered the vehicle was full of stolen items from the restaurant.
Deputy Sandu gave commands to the male, who ran. Deputy Sare arrived with his K9 partner “Chuck” and began to track the male.
The track led to a secured construction site, where the male was located hiding under a contractor’s trailer. He was detained without incident.
The final suspect was located by Deputy Bugosh, hiding behind a business.
The witness was able to positively identify the suspects. All 4 were booked into SCORE for commercial burglary.
