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.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
