The Morning Blotter

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee January 6, 2010

Eagle Eye: A Magnolia man helped police track down two men who burgled his home yesterday afternoon, police say. Around 2:00 p.m. yesterday, the man arrived at his home in the 2300 block of West Raye Street and found his front door wide open. Police say his home had been "ransacked." The man called 911, but when police arrived they did not find the burglars in the home. As police searched the area, the man went to a nearby coffee shop. While he was there, he spotted two men walking down West Dravus Street carrying a backpack and camera which had been stolen from his home. The man called 911 again and told police he'd seen the men getting on a Metro bus. Police arrested the two alleged burglars in Ballard a short time later.
