Just before 3 am this morning, Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched after a burglary alarm went off at Washington Tractor. A deputy was in the area and arrived within a minute to find a silver colored Toyota van backed up into and through the main entrance. There was substantial damage to the front of the building. The van was still running however high centered and could not be moved on its own, with no suspects in sight.
The owner of the van was an Aberdeen woman who was completely unaware that her vehicle had been stolen. Aberdeen Police is conducting an investigation concerning the vehicle theft.
A K9 unit was called in to track the suspect(s) as it appeared that those responsible had fled on foot through the woods to Linkshire Drive however no suspect were located.
The damage to Washington Tractor is believed to be in the thousands of dollars and will most likely force a closeure of the business for a period of time.
Detectives with the sheriff’s department are working with Aberdeen PD on this case.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Department at 360-249-3711.
