Sgt. John Urquhart said the pursuit originated in the 19700 block of 244th Avenue Southeast in rural Maple Valley, about four miles from the 15600 block of Issaquah-Hobart Road Southeast.

    Confusing headline:

    When we say that police “end a chase”, it more frequently means they abandoned — peeled off or pulled back from — a dangerous pursuit in the interest of public safety.

    Also, why was it the “Burglar’s chase”? What was the burglar chasing?

    To substitute a headline of equal or smaller size, I suggest: “Sheriff’s Office captures burglar after chase near Issaquah”.

Got something to say?
