Two arrested for home burglary near Soap Lake
SOAP LAKE, Wash. (19APR2017) – Two people are in jail today after a home burglary just north of Soap Lake.
For two nights in a row, a home in the 22000 block of State Route 17 North had been burglarized. That prompted a Grant County sheriff’s deputy to stake out the house this morning.
Around 6 a.m. the deputy saw a car pull up, open a secured gate and drive up to the home. A short time later the deputy stopped the car as it was leaving the home.
The car’s driver, Brenda Starcher, 44 of Soap Lake, was arrested. The passenger, 26-year-old Daniel Coreas of Soap Lake, fled on foot. Deputies, Ephrata police and sheriff’s K-9 Grizzly searched the area.
A passerby then told deputies that they saw a person answering Coreas’ description get into a car which headed north on SR17 toward Coulee City. Deputies and Ephrata police caught up with the car near Moore Road Northeast and arrested Coreas who was a passenger in the car.
Both Starcher and Coreas are lodged in the Grant County Jail for investigation of second degree burglary.
The investigation continues.
