Two nabbed for recent burglaries

PORT ORCHARD — Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputies have made two arrests in the recent burglaries in North Kitsap. Two Silverdale men suspected of aiding in the recent string of burglaries targeting the North End are facing felony charges after a Friday appearance in Kitsap County Superior Court.

Tony Dean Capps, 24, and Corey Michael Smith, 27, were charged with residential burglary, trafficking stolen property and felons in possession of firearms for their alleged roles in burglaries carried out in October and November.

According to Kitsap County Sheriff Office reports, investigators believe the two men were involved in six confirmed residential burglaries, including three homes in Poulsbo and one in Seabeck. KCSO deputies believe Capps and Smith may have been involved in at least four other residential burglaries.

Value of recovered property so far exceeds $25,000. Identification of other victims is expected as more property is recovered, said KCSO media relations officer Deputy Scott Wilson.

Capps, whose recommended bail was initially $100,000, was reduced in court by Judge M. Karlynn Haberly to $5,000 with the additional $5,000 for DUI. Capps posted his total $10,000 bail and left jail the same night, Wilson said.

Smith remained in jail as of press time because of an outstanding arrest warrant for escaping community custody. Smith also faces a forgery charge for attempting to use fake money at the Suquamish Clearwater Casino Oct. 31. Smith is scheduled to re-appear in court at 9 a.m. Nov. 26.

At about 2:30 a.m. Friday, detectives received a search warrant for the suspected stash house, located on the 14100 block of Thomas Drive NW in Silverdale.

According to KCSO reports, the burglaries are part of an ongoing investigation.
