(Wenatchee, WA) Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett reports that Chelan County Sheriff’s Deputies and Detectives recently detained a 17 year old juvenile male who was responsible for at least 10 residential burglaries in Chelan County that occurred over the past two years. Five of those burglaries occurred around the Malaga area with two of those occurring within the last three to four months, and three of the Malaga Burglaries occurring within the last two weeks. It appears that the majority of these burglaries occurred during daylight hours and the suspect was able to access the residences without forced entry, either through an unlocked door or window.
The suspect juvenile has been released into the custody of his parents and will be summonsed to juvenile court to face charges after investigations have been completed.
