GRANT COUNTY, Wash. - The Grant County Sheriff's Office say that the raid of a home east of Moses Lake on Monday netted over $100,000 in stolen goods, and put four people behind bars. 

Following up on leads in an investigation into property thefts from National Frozen Foods on January 20th, the Moses Lake Regional Tactical Response Team served a search warrant at 4562 Road N-Northeast. The Sheriff's Office says that on the January 20th burglary, a utility trailer, two pickup truck, generators, tires, tools, storage tank and hydraulic parts were stolen. During the raid, police found and recovered all of the stolen property inside a shop at the address, with the exception of the pickup trucks, which were recovered earlier. 

During the search, authorities also found other suspected stolen goods and think some of that property may be connected to thefts in Spokane, Yakima, and Lincoln counties. One notable piece listed was a Bobcat loader valued at $77,000  that was listed as stolen from a Yakima resident. Not including the property found that belonged to National Frozen Foods, deputies estimate over $100,000 in suspected stolen property has been recovered. 

Four people were arrested in the raid:

Joel L. Wright: The 46-year-old Moses Lake resident was arrested on Suspicion of First Degree Possession Of Stolen Property.

Tate B. Wright: The 19-year-old Moses Lake resident was arrested on Suspicion of First Degree Possession of Stolen Property.

Corey A. Sweet: The 40-year-old Moses Lake resident was arrested on Suspicion of First Degree Possession of Stolen Property and Possession of Methamphetamine. 

Patrick E. Pearson: The 41-year-old Moses Lake resident was arrested on Suspicion of First Degree Possession of Stolen Property, and outstanding warrants for Burglary and Vehicle Prowling. 

Anyone with any information about this case is asked to contact the Grant County Sheriff's Office at 509-754-2011, ext. 468.
