Burglary suspect located, investigation ongoing

Sunnyside police yesterday (Tuesday) were able to locate Mickie Flores, who was sought in connection with an alleged burglary that occurred early yesterday morning.

Flores was believed to have been wounded by a sword.

Michael Reynolds, 60, yesterday told police he injured Flores when protecting his home. He told police he believed Flores and a male subject were breaking into his home. During that time, he hid with the sword and used it when the pair made entry.

Police were concerned for Flores' welfare and wanted to question her regarding the incident.

Sgt. John Chumley earlier this morning announced Flores was located, treated for a cut on her chin, and she provided a statement regarding the early morning burglary incident.

Chumley said another witness also provided a statement and detectives will today review the case with Yakima County prosecutors to determine whether or not any charges will be filed.

"At this time there are no charges filed against anyone involved in this case and the investigation is still active," said the sergeant.

He urged anyone with information regarding the case to contact the Sunnyside Police Department at 836-6200.

In other Sunnyside police news, officers have since yesterday responded to a number of routine calls. Those calls include four automatic alarms, three reported assaults, a citizen dispute, a juvenile problem, a lost property report, a parking problem, a noise complaint, four suspicious activity calls, a report of threatening behavior, a traffic stop and a report of unsecure premises.

Officers also attempted to locate an individual wanted by authorities, served three arrest warrants, provided three welfare checks, fielded an informational call and provided a citizen and two agencies with assistance.
