Deputies seeking suspects in Fish Hatchery Road home burglary

Clallam County deputies are seeking two persons in connection with a June 29 burglary of a home on the 300 block of Fish Hatchery Road.

The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office reports that Theresa Riley, 42, and Amber Rohn, 39, are being sought in connection with the late morning residential burglary just southwest of Sequim.

According to the sheriff’s office, deputies burglary in progress at about 11:30 a.m. after a neighbor reported seeing a female carrying something in the front yard of their neighbor’s house, a home that had been burglarized in April.

When the neighbor went to confront the female, deputies say, she dropped the item — later found to be a sewing machine from the house — and ran into the woods. The neighbor was able to take photographs of the female before she fled the scene.

The neighbor also noticed a suspicious vehicle parked down the street and confronted its two occupants. As the neighbor started taking more photographs, the vehicle then sped off.

The Sheriff’s Office said that while searching the area, a deputy spotted the same vehicle — a silver Pontiac Bonneville — and though the deputy was unable to catch up to the vehicle because of traffic he was able to recognize the passenger, Shawn Mackey.

Deputies later found Mackey running down Hooker Road, according to the sheriff’s office. He was taken into custody, interviewed and released, law enforcement officials said.

During the course of their investigations the deputies were able to develop probable cause that Riley, the driver of the vehicle, and Rohn conspired to commit a burglary at the residence, the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office said.

Those with information about the whereabouts of Rohn or Riley are asked to call the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office at 360-417- 2459.
