In a release from Grays Harbor Chief Criminal Deputy Brad Johansson, he tells KXRO that a report came in recently for a man that seemed suspicious, walking along SR 105 near Twin Harbors State Park carrying a newer chainsaw under his coat.
Johansson says that a deputy contacted the man and the chainsaw and a cordless auto-hammer were seized during an investigation.
When the deputy tried to find the owner of the items it was found they had not been reported stolen.
According to the release, approximately four hours later a citizen called to report a burglary and the missing items, thanking the two citizens who took the time to report suspicious behavior.
