Suspect Charged with Washington Break-ins

A suspect has been charged with at least one of the recent daytime burglaries that have occurred in Washington. Raymond Bell, a 30 year old man from Washington, was arrested last Thursday when he was a passenger in a vehicle in which drug paraphernalia was found. He was a person of interest in the recent daytime burglaries. The next day, Detective Kevin Blackburn went to the house of a relative of Bell’s. The relative turned over a wicker basket full of jewelry that had been brought to the house. That jewelry was identified as stolen from a home in the 500th block of Hickory Street. Other items have been recovered from the initial burglary and have been returned to owners. More follow-up is being conducted and additional charges may be forthcoming. Raymond Bell was charged with 1 count of burglary in the second degree and one count of stealing over $500. Bond was set at $50,000 cash only.

"No Justice, No Peace"

Certainly, there was no peace on the streets of Ferguson on the night the grand jury announced it would not indict police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown.

The images of a city burning were disturbing, saddening and sickening. Every business torched leaves in its wake families who have lost their source of income, and a community that will find it that much harder to rebuild.
