Owners of Stolen Property are Encouraged to Come Forward Following Washington Vehicle Break-ins.

A Washington man is now in custody for a series of vehicle break-ins over the past few days. Late Thursday night Sergeant Paul Kesterson with the Washington Police department arrested the 22 year old Washington man following a traffic stop in the 1300 block of East 5th street. Most of these vehicles were parked on the street in the Quail Run subdivision. After a radio call was broadcast for a male and female acting suspicious and possibly under the influence of narcotics at the FasTrip on East 5th Street, Sgt. Kesterson observed the vehicle described and conducted the traffic stop. Numerous items such as GPS units were identified as stolen and were seized from the vehicle. The suspect confessed to stealing the items and led police to an address on Lafayette Street where additional stolen items were recovered. The suspect is not identified at this time pending warrant application. Investigation is continuing to identify all victims involved with the recovered property.
