VIDEO: Police chase, search for burglary suspect; surveillance video released

UPDATE FRIDAY, DEC. 30, 2016, 3 p.m.:

At 11:30 a.m. Friday morning (Dec. 30, 2016), Des Moines Police Officers responded to a burglary in progress at a residence in the 25800 block of Marine View Drive South (map below).

The resident – who was not at home at the time – was watching video of a burglary suspect in her house on her cell phone. She called 911, and also dialed a neighbor who went next door and confronted the suspect. A fight took place and the suspect suffered minor injuries before fleeing in a dark colored Honda.

Sgt. Doug Jenkins told The Waterland Blog that police located the suspect vehicle not too far from where the incident occurred and attempted to stop the car, but the suspect fled. He went south on 16th Ave, west on S. 272nd Street and into Redondo. Speeds reached up to 100 MPH on Redondo Beach Drive, and the pursuit continued onto 1st Ave South into Federal Way.

The suspect crashed his car at 1st Place SW and Dash Point Road, then fled on foot. With the assistance of officers from Federal Way and Kent Police Departments a perimeter was set up. A K-9 from the Kent Police Department attempted to locate the suspect but was unsuccessful. The car the suspect was driving had been reported stolen to the Fife Police Department.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s to 40s, 6’0″ tall, with a medium build. He has long brown hair and wore it in a ponytail. He has a gray moustache that was described as a “Hulk Hogan” style moustache, and was wearing a black baseball hat, a black or gray jacket and blue jeans.

There were no injuries reported.

Below is a video showing the suspect as he was in the house:
