Four suspects vandalize new houses, set fire to garage in Kenmore

They face felony charges after police say they entered the houses and lit one on fire.

Four teenagers are facing felony charges after being arrested early Oct. 8 after deputies say they broke into two separate houses and set fire to a garage in Kenmore.

The suspects are three men and a woman, ranging in age from 14 to 19, with two of the men and the woman living in Kenmore, and the fourth man being from Woodinville, according to a release from the King County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the report, police were called to a new home under construction in the 7400 block of Northeast 166th Street around 2 a.m. after receiving a report of vandalism. When they arrived, deputies saw rocks inside the house and broken windows.

While checking out the house, the deputies smelled smoke and saw another new house’s garage was fully engulfed in flames, the report said.

Fire officials arrived and extinguished the fire.

Around 10 minutes later, deputies received a report of people running through their yard in the 16300 block of Juanita Drive Northeast.

Deputies arrived and saw the suspects running through a wooded area near a church, the report said.

They set up a K-9 unit and found the four hiding in the woods.

All four are being charged with residential burglary, with the 16-year-old Kenmore man facing an additional malicious mischief charge, and the 14-year-old woman and the 17-year-old man facing arson charges as well.

The juveniles were booked into the a juvenile detention facility, and the 19-year-old into King County Jail.
