Two men now face burglary and theft charges in relation to the Coastal Farm & Ranch burglary in late June.
Micah Aaron Parker, 33, and Christopher Paul Robbins, 53, both remain in Clallam County jail on $150,000 and $50,000 bail with their arraignment hearings set for 1:30 p.m. and 9 a.m. Friday, July 8, in Clallam County Superior Court.
Sequim Police Department reported three individuals early in the morning of June 24 broke into the business at 990 E. Washington St., using a rock to break through the front doors.
They stole 13 shotguns — 11 12-gauge shotguns and two 20-gauge shotguns — valued at about $9,049 pre-tax, and tools, and miscellaneous items valued at about $14,000, according to court documents.
A pistol case was smashed with an ax, a battery case broken with a ratchet set, and cables attached to guns were cut with an ax, court documents state.
A cost estimate for damage to the store remains unavailable, police said.
Robbins was arrested at 7 Cedars Casino on June 24, the same day as the burglary.
Robbins is charged with burglary in the first degree, theft in the first degree, and 13 counts of theft of a firearm, and possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance (fentanyl) and (methamphetamine).
Police report he allegedly had more than 100 pills of fentanyl, and about 2 ounces of methamphetamine, according to court documents.
Parker was arrested at Western Inn in Tacoma on June 29 after law enforcement tracked him. One gun and some merchandise were inside his room, court documents state.
Parker told police he participated in the burglary, according to the documents.
He is charged with burglary in the first degree, theft in the first degree and 13 counts of theft of a firearm.
Parker already faces other charges in Thurston County from a May 9 incident of possession of a stolen vehicle, unlawful possession of a firearm in the second degree, and malicious mischief in the third degree.
He already holds multiple felony convictions, and he was convicted of theft in the third degree on May 12 in Lakewood, but his 364 days in jail was withheld if he didn’t commit another crime.
Both vehicles identified in the burglary’s surveillance video, a Mitsubishi Montero registered to Robbins and a Chevy Silverado, were confiscated by Sequim Police, they said.
A third suspect has not been named by law enforcement and remains at large. Sequim Police officers describe this person in court documents, according to video surveillance, as a black male with a heavy build, dark mustache or goatee wearing a plain gray hoodie, gray skullcap/beanie, red bandana facemask, dark pants, and black shoes with reflective stripes on the heel and red soles.
