Citizen’s Help Leads To Arrest Of Suspects

Posted: Updated:

PEND OREILLE COUNTY, Wash. - On Wednesday, April 17, 2013 a Citizen checking on her mother's vacant home, located north of Cusick, Washington, reported a burglary in progress.  The Citizen reported that upon arriving at her mother's home she observed a man and woman run from the area of the house and garage.  The couple ran to a gray Dodge truck which was parked away from the home at a gravel pit on the rural property. 

The Citizen made an attempt to block the suspect vehicle from leaving, but the truck drove around her at a high rate of speed.  The Citizen then provided information to dispatch while attempting to follow the suspects.  As Pend Oreille County sheriff's deputies closed in the citizen lost sight of the suspects as they continued on at a high rate of speed through a work zone endangering the lives of workers.  Deputies received assistance from the Kalispel Tribal Police and the Washington State Patrol and soon located the suspect vehicle and occupants near Flowery Trail Road.  Upon contact, deputies were able to identify a large fuel tank in the back of the truck as stolen from a separate theft.

Suspect's Justin D. Ackaret, age 32 of Deer Park and Charity M. King, age 38 of Newport were taken into custody.  Subsequent investigation determined that no entry was made into the residence.   A neighbor also reported to deputies he had observed the gray Dodge truck drive slowly by the victim residence multiple times about 30 minutes before the incident started.   

Ackaret was booked into jail on charges of Criminal Trespass, Possession of Stolen Property and Reckless Endangerment.  He also had an outstanding warrant for Escape through the Department of Corrections.  King was booked on charges of Criminal Trespass and Possession of Stolen Property.
