The Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office tells KXRO that during the last week and a half, there have been four separate Burglaries/Thefts/Vehicle Prowls in the Brady and Satsop area.
On February 18th, the department investigated a burglary in the 100 block of Winkleman Road in Brady when someone broke into the residence and stole several items, including a flat screen TV, computer, and laptop. The victim noticed metals had been taken from around his shop. Investigators eventually developed a suspect of the metal theft and he was located and arrested. It is unknown at this time if he was responsible for the burglary to the home. That investigation is ongoing.
On February 20, the department investigated a burglary in the 1000 block of Monte Elma Road in Satsop when a shed was burglarized and items were taken from the carport including a 10 speed bike, a drill press, and miscellaneous tools. It was believed this crime occurred at night.
On Tuesday of this week, a burglary in the 500 block of Monte Elma Road in Brady occurred as the home owners were away only a few hours mid-day. When they returned home they discovered someone had forcefully entered their home and shop and stole numerous items including a flat screen TV, food, clothing, jewelry, and tools. Due to the extent of theft, detectives were called to assist deputies with this investigation.
On Wednesday of this week, residents in the 500 block of Monte Elma Road in Montesano discovered that someone had stolen the batteries out of their vehicles.
