Betty Chinn's warehouse broken into again

Betty Chinn's warehouse got broken into, again. This happened today, "sometime this afternoon", said Betty. "Somebody called me. There were two trucks full of stuff, hidden under the railroad tracks."

EPD was called. A man who had some of that stolen property was arrested.

"This is the second time," Betty said. Her voice calm but weary.

EPD Captain Steve Watson confirmed the break-in, "Yes it did. Not as substantial as before.  A local alarm company is donating a system for her. "


John Dalkin was the only arrest and person booked  at 6:34 p.m. by EPD for receiving stolen property. He was also arrested for violation of parole.

  1. That is beyond disgusting. Since they obviously have no shame, what about shunning them? I would.
