Authorities are seeking help solving a theft taking place earlier this month in the Salkum area.
Sometime between March 5 and 6, an unknown number of suspects entered a rock quarry on the 200 block of Winston Creek Rd., east of Salkum, and stole more than 1,200 feet of electrical wire and a 1995 box van. The van was later recovered, but the wire was not. The estimated loss is more than $20,000.
Those with information are asked to call (360) 740-1266 or, to leave an anonymous tip for possible cash reward, Lewis County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-748-6422.
