McCleary man connected to Grays Harbor, Thurston, Mason, and Lewis Counties
A McCleary man connected to a series of vehicle prowls throughout Grays Harbor has been arrested.
On May 25, Hoquiam officers investigated a reported vehicle prowl in the Olympic Stadium parking lot where a MacBook Pro was taken.
Officers used a tracking feature to locate the laptop in the 400 block of Second Street in McCleary, but were unable to pinpoint the exact location.
Lacey PD stopped a stolen vehicle on June 3, and recovered a MacBook Pro. Lacey’s evidence custodian linked it back to a McCleary man living on Second Street.
When they cross referenced the computer to regional cases, they connected it to the Hoquiam case. After multiple search warrants, detectives recovered driver’s licenses, wallets, credit cards, checkbooks, vehicle titles, cell phones, tools, battery chargers, clothing and personal information belonging to numerous victims.
A 26 year old McCleary man was booked in the Grays Harbor County Jail for possession of stolen property in the second degree.
Hoquiam Police continue to work to identify the owners of property recovered from vehicle prowls in Aberdeen, Cosmopolis, Elma, Shelton, Olympia, Tumwater and Centralia.
