On October 16, Ocean Shores officers arrested two people for Residential Burglary. They are possibly involved in other burglaries in the area.

At about 6 am on October 15, a resident on Sand Dune Ave. SW reported a male and female walking northbound. The male was pushing a cart with items on it, while the female was carrying two large bags.

Sgt. Watson and Officer Church checked the area and found that a house in the 500 block of Ocean Shores Blvd. SW had been burglarized. A great deal of property, including furniture, dishes and even cabinets had either been removed from the house or had been piled near the door to be removed later.



Further investigation lead the officers to a house in the 400 block of Sand Dune Ave. SW. The suspects, a 38-year old man and a 28-year old woman, were apparently 'squatting' in the vacant house. The woman was found hiding in a bed stolen from the other house, covered in stolen blankets. Sgt. Watson obtained a search warrant for the house and recovered nearly all the property stolen in the burglary. Other property, possibly from other burglaries, was also located.

Both suspects were booked into the Grays Harbor County jail for suspicion of Residential Burglary.
