Two days ago, we reported on a lengthy search of a residence north of Pasco in Clark's Addition, where arrests were made, and stolen property located--including a $100K fossil collection.

   More arrests and additional stolen vehicles recovered

The incident began with a Deputy trying to pull over a vehicle that was driving erratically on State Route 260, in this case north of Pasco and the vehicle had been reported stolen out of Connell. After the driver stopped near a residence in Clark's Addition and fled into the home, a search warrant turned up an extensive collection of stolen property.

One of the items was a $100K fossil collection taken from a Kennewick storage unit.

Now, Sheriff Jim Raymond reports two more stolen vehicles were recovered, one near the property north of Pasco, and the other in a remote area of Franklin County. Also, a 34-foot enclosed trailer was seized. Deputies served a warrant Wednesday at a home in Richland, where a 7th stolen vehicle was recovered.

Four people have been arrested on charges ranging from possession of stolen property to previous outstanding warrants. Jerome Wright of Pasco, Jaclyn Israel-Peterson (no hometown listed), Sasha Betzen of Pasco, and Amanda Vogel are all in jail on the wide range of charges.
