Suspect in Custody for Day Time Burglaries in Washington

A suspect has been charged with at least one of the recent daytime burglaries that have occurred recently 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 considered 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 Bell had brought to the home. That jewelry was identified as stolen from a home in the 500 block of Hickory Street. Other items have been recovered and are being investigated to determine if they are stolen from other burglaries as well. All the property that was recovered from the initial burglary has been returned to the owners. More follow-up is being conducted and additional charges may be forthcoming. Raymond Bell was charged with 1 ct. Burglary 2nd degree and 1 ct. Stealing over $500. Bond was set at $50,000 cash only.

I am a woman. I would be more than happy to have more money in my paycheck. Too bad the Paycheck Fairness Act won't do that for me. Who wants "equality" if it comes because everyone makes less money?

Nonetheless, the Paycheck Fairness Act is the latest weapon in the War On Women, part II--2014 election style.
