Mason County Sheriff Office Chief Deputy Ryan Spurling 

SHELTON - The Mason County Sheriff’s office believes it has quelled the recent rash of burglaries in Mason County after serving a warrant on a large parcel of land on Arcadia Rd. In an interview with iFIBER ONE Newsradio’s Jeff Slakey during Monday’s Daybreak program, Chief Deputy Ryan Spurling says the warrants were served on the problem property during the day on Friday and Saturday. Spurling says some of people who are camped out or living on the 30-acre plot in the 5000 blk. of Arcadia Rd. are believed to be responsible for the thefts.

“There was so much stolen property it was ridiculous,” said Spurling during the interview.

Items stolen included firearms, antique fishing poles, chainsaws, etc. Spurling says the worth of all the stolen property amounted to tens-of-thousands of dollars.

Arrests related to the burglaries have yet to be made as the investigation continues.

sign probably the only one that thinks ridiculous that it took you this long to act on what the community knows has been a problem for quite some time. But go ahead and Pat yourself on the back because this is the participation era.
