The Newcastle Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies have located two suspects after a home burglary was reported Feb. 29 on Forest Drive in Bellevue, just outside of Newcastle city limits.

The house was reportedly occupied during the incident, said Police Chief Melinda Irvine in a statement.

Two male suspects fled into the heavily wooded area toward Newcastle-Golf Club Road.

Newcastle officers, King County Sheriff’s Office deputies and detectives assisted Bellevue along with K-9 units from Kirkland and Federal Way.

The suspects were located by K-9 hiding under a foot of leaves in the ravine.

“We will continue a thorough investigation of the burglaries that have occurred in the city to determine if these men are responsible and work to locate any stolen property,” Irvine said. 

The suspects may be responsible for several burglaries in Newcastle over the last few months, according to the statement.

A Newcastle detective worked with the Bellevue detective on suspect interviews.

“I would like to thank all of the residents who have called in suspicious activity (and) vehicles (or) provided license plate numbers, descriptions, and even photos and video at times,” she said. “These are helpful in our investigation and in deterring criminal activity in the community.”

As investigations continue, Irvine encourages residents to continue to be aware of their surroundings.

If you observe suspicious activity, call 911 or the non-emergency dispatch number, 206-296-3311, to have an officer respond.

Police encourage residents to put the non-emergency dispatch number into their cell phones so it is easily available in case of a suspicious incident.
