Thurston County Deputies Recover ‘Massive Amount of Stolen Property’ After Report of Shots Fired 

Posted

The Thurston County Sheriff’s Office reported Thursday it recovered at least four stolen vehicles and a “massive amount of stolen property” after responding to the 14700 block of Regal Lane Southeast in Yelm on Aug. 8. 

A Freightliner service truck was tracked to the location using the GPS tracking system in the truck, according to the sheriff’s office. A 911 caller reported that someone from the home on the property fired several gunshots at an employee who was attempting to recover the truck. 

Deputies responded and located the stolen truck and were able to obtain a search warrant for the residence. 

Detectives located three additional stolen vehicles, several illegal or stolen firearms and a large amount of additional stolen property. 

The items included possessions stolen from a U-Haul theft a month ago in Tumwater.



“The U-Haul contained all of the personal property belonging to an active duty Coast Guard family that was changing duty stations,” according to the sheriff’s office. “Many of those items were recovered and returned.” 

The sheriff’s office is attempting to locate and contact the owners of other recovered property. 

A 55-year-old Yelm man was booked into the Thurston County Jail on several felony charges, according to the sheriff’s office. 

The sheriff’s office reported that other suspects have been identified and additional arrests will likely be made soon.
