On Monday, August 27, 2012, an 18-year-old Eastsound man was arrested by deputies on Orcas Island and charged with 3 counts of burglary. Over the past 10 days there had been a series of burglaries and thefts in the Eastsound area.
Orcas deputies were able to identify a suspect involved in the burglaries of the Salmonberry School, the Children’s House, and a private garage. The subject was located and arrested without incident Monday evening.
A search warrant was served subsequent to the arrest, and some of the property taken in the burglaries was recovered by deputies. The investigation is on-going.
