Grandview police nab teens suspected of burglarizing home

GRANDVIEW - Grandview police yesterday, Wednesday, were dispatched to the 500 block of West Fourth Street, where burglars had hit an apartment residence.

The burglary was reported by the landlord, who advised police that neighbors saw three juveniles break into the apartment.

Last night, Grandview's school resource officer and a patrol officer recovered most of the $6,000 in jewelry stolen in the burglary and apprehended two suspects in the case.

Transported to Yakima County's juvenile facility last night were 17-year-old and 14-year-old male Grandview residents. Requested charges are burglary and first degree theft.

Grandview Assistant Police Chief Mark Ware attributed the arrests and jewelry recovery to "some nifty police work."

Also since yesterday, Grandview police were alerted to a case of identity theft in the 300 block of North Hornby Road, where the victim reported their credit card was stolen.

Police were in addition dispatched to the 300 block of OIE Highway, where a resident said a metal storm drain grate was stolen from the property.

Early this morning, police fielded a call from the 100 block of East Wine Country Drive, where a business was the victim of a gas drive-off.

In other activity since yesterday, Grandview police were alerted to graffiti in the 200 block of Elm Street and assisted the fire department with a shed fire in the 1400 block of Chase Road.

In addition, Grandview police fielded three dog complaints. The most serious dog complaint was in the 600 block of Highland Road, where a caller told police their daughter had to go to the emergency room after being bitten by a German Shepherd.
