Man arrested after found covered in glass, carrying alcohol from Hoquiam Liquor Store

A Hoquiam man admitted to police that today was the second time he tried to steal liquor from the Hoquiam Liquor store. Police arrested the man after responding to a burglary alarm at the store early this morning. Sergeant Jeff Salstrom tells us they were called to the 900 block of Simpson just after 2 A.M. Friday morning to find that the glass of the front door had been broken out with a large rock. Officer Don Grossi and Salstrom searched the area while they contacted the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office, but before a K-9 officer could arrive, Aberdeen Officer Gary Sexton was assisting, and located a man covered in broken glass, carrying two bottles of alcohol nearby. This isn’t the first time in the past couple weeks that the store has been broken into, last time someone broke the same window but didn’t get any merchandise. Salstrom said the 26 year old Hoquiam man confessed to both attempts, and was booked on charges of burglary in the second degree.
