Back to school? Police, copter search for suspects near Holy Names – UPDATE

UPDATE: 11:57 AM:
Two people were reported on the roof of Holy Names Academy attempting to enter the building early this morning around 2:00 AM, according to Seattle Police Department spokesperson Mark Jamieson. King County Sherriff’s Guardian 1 helicopter was available to assist in the search to provide an aerial view and use its infrared system to look for the suspects, Jamieson said. According to Jamieson, arriving officers caught one of the suspects inside Holy Names and placed him under arrest on investigation of burglary. The person arrested was a juvenile male and Jamieson said he didn’t yet have details about whether the boy was attempting to steal something from the all-girls school or if we simply apprehended inside the building. Both scenarios can lead to burlglary charges, Jamieson said.

A manhunt is underway in the neighborhood surrounding Holy Names Academy at 21st Ave E and Aloha. Unconfirmed but information from the scanner indicates that there has been a burglary at the school and police are searching for two suspects. The helicopter search began around 2:35 AM.

The helicopter left the area around 2:45 AM. Will verify the scanner details as soon as possible.
