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.

Early Tuesday morning, U.S. fighter jets, armed Predator and Reaper drones, and Navy ships launched airstrike attacks against ISIS, deep within Syria. While it is ironic that it was about a year ago at this time that President Obama was seriously considering strikes against Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad, sometimes threats emerge even greater than the last.
