Outlook burglary leads to two arrests

Just before 7 a.m. this past Wednesday morning an Outlook resident in the 10 block of B Street reported to the Yakima County Sheriff's Office two individuals had broken into the residence and at least one was still inside.

The suspects fled the scene, and reported stolen in the burglary were food, clothing and jewelry.

Yesterday (Thursday) at approximately 11:45 a.m. a victim in that incident phoned the Yakima County Sheriff's Office to report seeing one of the suspects wearing clothing stolen the day before.

Deputies responded to the call and were led on a foot pursuit after locating the 18-year-old suspect. The suspect was stunned with a taser and taken into custody.

Clothing and jewelry worn by the individual was identified as items stolen in the Outlook burglary.

Also discovered in the possession of the suspect was what deputies believed to be heroin.

The suspect was taken to and booked at the Yakima County Jail, where he has been charged with residential burglary and possession of heroin.

Another Yakima County Sheriff's deputy responding to assist in the apprehension of the burglary suspect was detained as he made a routine traffic stop on I-82 between Granger and Outlook.

The driver involved in the stop failed to yield and move to the right in response to the deputy's emergency lights and siren.

The vehicle the motorist was driving was determined to be a rental car and once stopped, the driver fled the scene on foot. He was apprehended approximately one-quarter of a mile from the stop after having run to a dairy. During the pursuit, the suspect became covered in straw and manure.

He attempted to steal a 1992 Kenworth dump truck in an effort to escape authorities.

Once the suspect was apprehended a search of the rental vehicle he had been driving yielded the discovery of more than one pound of marijuana, approximately five pounds of Ecstasy and a firearm.

The suspect, a 25-year-old male from Yakima, is in the custody of the Yakima County Sheriff's Office. He is being held on multiple felony charges.

Also in Yakima County Sheriff's news, Lower Valley residents have reported two burglaries, a domestic violence situation and a trespassing situation since yesterday. Deputies have recovered a stolen vehicle since yesterday, as well.
