Police arrested two teenagers Wednesday for breaking into a Greenwood home while the owner was on vacation and leaving behind a huge mess of garbage and graffiti.
A neighbor tipped off police that people were inside a home, located in the 100 block of Northwest 95th Street, that should have been empty. When officers arrived, they found a broken back window with a blanket covering the jagged glass.
Officers surrounded the house, yelled “Seattle Police,” and heard people running around the house in a panic. Eventually, one of the burglars opened the front door. Police arrested two teenage boys, ages 14 and 15.
Inside the home, officers found belongings scattered everywhere, drug paraphernalia, graffiti throughout the home and garbage. Police booked the teens into the Youth Services Center on burglary charges.
