BROOKINGS, Ore. — Deputies have arrested a man in connection with multiple burglaries in the Brookings area, according to the Curry County Sheriff's Office (CCSO).

On Monday, the Sheriff's Office got information about the possible location of property stolen during a break-in at the Brookings Harbor Veterinarian clinic that was reported back on November 4. Between the stolen property and damage caused to the building, the cost of that burglary was estimated at more than $5,000.

A detective applied for a search warrant on a vehicle registered to 34-year-old Daniel Richardson and a house where the vehicle had been parked near Ophir. A judge granted the warrant, leading deputies and detectives to descend on the property around 8 p.m. on Monday.

The investigators found "numerous items" stolen from the vet clinic in both Richardson's vehicle and the house, the Sheriff's Office said. They also reported finding items stolen in a separate burglary at the Hungry Clam on Lower Harbor Road, one where $7,000 in property had been taken.

Around 10:45 p.m., deputies, a detective, and an Oregon State Trooper found Richardson at a house on Foxglove Way in Brookings — arresting him on two counts of Burglary in the Second Degree and Theft I by Receiving. He was taken to the Curry County Jail and lodged.

"The Curry County Sheriff’s Office will continue the investigation and information will be shared with the Brookings Police Department and the Oregon State Police for possible association of other burglaries that happened during the same time frame in the south county," the agency said. "Information was filed with the Curry County District Attorney’s Office and an additional charge of Aggravated Theft will be charged."
