Deputies recover stolen property

Deputies from the Lewis County Sheriff's Office served a search warrant on a residence in the 100 block of Romerman Road, Chehalis, in reference to stolen property.

Feb. 1, 2018, at about 3:00 p.m., deputies arrived at a residence that once was occupied by David Dehaven (32-year-old male) and his acquaintance Carly Holmes (38-year-old female). Both are currently in custody at the Lewis County Jail for charges that were filed in January, by the Lewis County Prosecutor, for Robbery, Theft, and Theft of a Motor Vehicle, and Theft.

As a result of the search warrant, deputies recovered an extensive amount of property that filled a Sheriff's Office 22 ft. cargo trailer. The property recovered will be matched up to several burglaries and theft investigations from Centralia to Winlock.

The deputies investigating these cases have a good idea who all the property belongs to and will be sorting the property and calling victims to come into the Evidence Division to identity their property.

Deputies believe the crime spree of burglaries go back to August of 2017. As of this date, we are matching the property to about ten burglaries and multiple other property-related crimes.

Sheriff Robert R. Snaza states, "The hard work of our deputies will result in several victims being able to have their stolen property returned to them. Property crimes are devastating on those that work hard and provide for their families. We will continue to pursue those who break the law and those that choose to victimize the citizens of this great county."

Anyone having information on these crimes or any other crime, should contact the Lewis County Sheriff's Office at (360) 748-9286.
