A quick stop of a suspicious car led to two arrests and a raid that recovered some items stolen from a Prineville home, police said Wednesday.
Police received a report Monday of a break-in and burglary of an unoccupied home, with an estimated loss of ?well over $1,000,? said Capt. Michael Boyd. Police did not disclose the home?s address but said items taken included electronics and firearms.
An officer conducted a traffic stop on a 1992 Isuzu Rodeo seen leaving the area shortly after the burglary was reported, Boyd said.
The driver, Jaime Frank Nichol, 37, of Prineville, was taken into custody on charges of possessing stolen property and methamphetamine possession, the captain said.
Nichol was lodged at the Crook County Jail, where he remained held without bail Wednesday on a probation violation charge.
On Tuesday around 11:20 a.m., police assisted by sheriff?s deputies and Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team detectives, served a search warrant at Nichol?s home at 725 NW Beaver Street, Boyd said.
After the raid, another resident of the home, Sarah Marie Nelson, 27, was arrested on charges of possessing stolen property, as well as meth possession, the captain said. She was booked into the jail and later released.
The search turned up some items taken in the burglary, as well as a small amount of methamphetamine, Oxycontin and marijuana.
Boyd said more arrests are likely as the investigation continues.
