On Sept. 9, 2018, at about 11:36 a.m., Deputies from The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a location near milepost 194 along Highway 101, Forks, in regard to a stolen travel trailer. The travel trailer had been stolen from the location sometime between 10:30 and 11 a.m. that morning.
Deputies responded and investigated the theft of the sixteen-foot travel trailer which was valued at around eighteen thousand dollars. The trailer was a 2018 Forest River Travel Trailer bearing Washington license plate 72179AB. The trailer was TAN in color with a brown and red stripe which surrounded the trailer and Cascade was written on the front and side of the trailer.
Deputies entered the trailer into the system as being stolen.
On the morning of Sept. 10 Deputies located a witness to the theft of the travel trailer. A witness observed what they believed to be a 1989 or 1990 teal colored, two-wheel drive, extended cab, Ford pickup backed up to the travel trailer on the morning of Sept. 9. Two men got out of the truck. One man was described as being an older heavy-set white male and the other man was described as being a taller, dark-haired man who may have been Native American.
A similar style theft was reported to responding Clallam County Deputies on Sept 5, 2018, in which a mini Kubota excavator had been towed away from a P.U.D. work site located on the Undie Road south of Forks. The excavator was later recovered on a logging road in Jefferson County. (Clallam County Case 2018-20063)
