The Yakima Herald Republic states that a pair of bold burglary suspects who have entered occupied homes looking for goods were arrested after entering an occupied West Valley home last week.

The Republic reported that prosecutors filed burglary charges against Leo Dwight Wood II, 26, of Yakima and his apparent girlfriend accomplice, 22-year-old Tiffany Dawn Scott of Selah, who have been linked with several break-ins of occupied homes in the area.

A flat tire on their vehicle after fleeing a home they were burglarizing helped a patrol officer spot the suspect vehicle and after a short chase on 72nd Avenue, the two suspects were captured and later identified as Wood and Scott, reports the Herald Republic.

Several cases in the area involve occupants home asleep, a laptop and purse missing, a woman scaring off a young woman rummaging through her home and the suspects apparently entering homes through open garage doors or other open doors, states the Republic.

According to the Herald Republic, Wood was convicted of possession of stolen property in 2008 and Scott has a more serious record that includes a robbery arrest in 2009.

Wood and Scott have been in custody since last Thursday, reports the Republic, when they were arrested in connection with a burglary in the 400 block of South 81st Avenue and both suspects remain in custody at the Yakima County jail, with bail totaling $147, 500 for the pair.
