Wenatchee police officers Cory Bernaiche, with sunglasses, and Ron Wilson, entered a motel room in Wenatchee Wednesday afternoon to arrest a man accused of taking a gun from a parked vehicle. Police recovered the handgun and booked Rory Seaburg, 32, of Wenatchee, into the Chelan County Regional Justice Center on suspicion of theft of a firearm and unlawful possession of a firearm. Information obtained in the motel search led to the arrest Thursday night of three more people on drugs and a weapons charge, said Sgt. Jim West.
A brush fire near Highway 97 in Chelan was contained Saturday night after burning 20 acres of sage brush. Level 3 evacuation notices were issued to 40 to 50 homes in the area, all of which were downgraded to Level 1 after fire crews subdued the blaze at 7:30 p.m.
