No suspect in Henery Hardware burglary

KINGSTON — Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputies have no suspect in the burglary of Henery’s Hardware in Kingston two weeks ago.

Store employee William Arps reported the store had been broken into on March 24. After preparing the cash registers, he reported he noticed a drawer’s lock clasp had been “pried off.” This is the drawer where extra cash is kept during the day. Missing from inside this drawer was about $150 in rolled change.

Arps then checked the alarm panel which indicated the garden center zone had been tripped. The garden center door was damaged, but the evidence indicated the burglar entered by climbing the walls of the garden center and dropping through the plastic sheeting acting as a roof. The store manager followed up with the alarm monitoring service as to why the service was not notified.

The investigation is ongoing.
