Robbery Suspect Wanted
The Yakima County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man wanted in connection with a burglary Thursday morning. Here is the press released issued by YSO Thursday afternoon:
Around 7:30 A.M. Thursday, a person living on the 2600 block of South 62nd Avenue in Yakima reported a suspicious vehicle and two people that had left the area. When the person confronted the two people, who were a man and a woman, the suspects said that they were interested in renting the property. The person did happen to snap some photographs of the suspects and the license plate on their vehicle. After the suspects left the area, the person figured out that a neighboring residence had been broken into.
Yakima Sheriff’s Office investigators responded, and armed with the photographs of the suspects and their vehicle, went to the Yakima address to contact the registered owner of the suspect vehicle. The female suspect was located at the residence and arrested. She protested her arrest stating she wasn’t involved in this in spite of being shown the photograph of herself captured in the photo. She stated she was not involved in any criminal activity. Not to be swayed, investigators arrested the 25-year-old Yakima woman for burglary and for unlawfully possessing a firearm. She was booked her into the Yakima County Jail. She was found to be in possession of a stolen firearm when she was arrested.
The man captured in photographs by the witness has not been identified. Investigators seek the assistance of the public in identifying the male in the attached photograph. He is wanted for burglary. To the male in the photo, “Come see us before we come see you.
