In the early morning hours of Thursday June 22, 2017, North and East Precinct officers responded to numerous reports of commercial burglaries to businesses.

As officers were investigating numerous break-ins along North Mississippi Avenue, officers responded to a burglary alarm at Binks at approximately 4:30 a.m. Binks, a neighborhood pub, is located at 2715 Northeast Alberta Street.

Officers spotted two people in the area of Binks that ran from police and hid in the neighborhood. A third person in a dark-colored smaller SUV drove out of the area and has not been identified or located.

A neighborhood perimeter was established and the two suspects were located and taken into custody without incident near Northeast 26th Avenue and Alberta Street.

Officers and detectives are continuing to investigate the overnight burglary reports, connections to previous burglary reports in the neighborhood, and the link to the two people in custody.

Officers from Central, East, and North Precincts, as well as the Canine and Air Support Units, assisted with these investigations and capture of the two suspects.

No additional information is available at this time and updates will be provided as they become available.
