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.

Stolen statue honoring fallen soldier Tim Davis is returned to mother’s porch

A statue honoring fallen U.S. Airman Tim Davis has been returned to the porch from where it vanished in late September. The soldier’s mother, Sally Sheldon tells us the statue was stolen from her front porch “And today they returned it. It was on my front porch when I opened the door. I’m so thankful.” Sally’s son Tim was killed during combat operations five years ago near Bagram, Afghanistan of wounds suffered when his vehicle encountered an improvised explosive device. “my brother Jim Sheldon of Montesano had given me a carving of an eagle, perched on the Air Force insignia and it said ‘Tim Davis: Hero’ on it.” The statue vanished in late September, and without as much as a note it was returned this morning. “I don’t know what to say I’m so thankful, I’m so very thankful.” The Eagle is missing his marble eyes, and it doesn’t say “Tim Davis: Hero” on it anymore. The carving looks as if someone was trying to rebrand it to sell as a chainsaw carving, but the lightning bolt and jolly green feet were still visible on the Special Tactics insignia. The 1999 Montesano High School graduate was killed His mother Sally pled with the burglar(s) in September through the Aberdeen Daily World, and just under a week before Veteran’s Day, the statue was returned.
