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.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
