Chelan County Deputies arrest suspect in storage unit burglary and hardware store theft


CASHMERE - Chelan County Sheriff Mike Morrison reported that deputies arrested Marcos Depaz, a 37-year-old male from Cashmere, in connection with a storage unit burglary and a theft from a hardware store.

On April 12, at approximately 2:06 pm, deputies responded to a burglary report at Cashmere Mill District Storage in Cashmere. The victim reported that a suspect had broken into their storage unit and stolen a drywall sander and associated equipment. Surveillance footage showed the suspect cutting the lock on the unit the day before and returning early the next morning to steal the equipment.

On May 1, at about 8:46 am, Marson and Marson Lumber in Leavenworth reported the theft of a nail gun from their retail hardware store. Deputies searched the area and located Depaz, who had the stolen nail gun in his possession. One of the investigating deputies recognized that Depaz was wearing the same clothes and shoes as the suspect in the storage unit burglary.

After obtaining a search warrant for a residence associated with Depaz in the 5700 block of Goodwin Rd in Cashmere, deputies, with the assistance of the CCSO Investigations Unit, recovered the stolen drywall sander and associated equipment from the residence.

Marcos Depaz was booked into the Chelan County Regional Justice Center on multiple charges, including Burglary 2nd Degree, Theft 2nd Degree, Malicious Mischief 3rd Degree for the storage unit theft, Theft 3rd Degree, Malicious Mischief 3rd Degree, and Controlled Substance Knowingly Possess for the Marson and Marson theft.

The stolen property will be returned to its rightful owners.
