Okanogan County Deputies busted up a burglary ring that officials say was responsible for taking over $7000 worth of items including computers and electronic equipment from the Free Methodist Church in Tonasket earlier this month.

Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers said an investigation led them to a home in Tonasket, where they recovered several of the stolen items from the church worth about $6000. Deputies arrested 45-year-old Joseph E. Dagnon, at the home on suspicion of Possession of Stolen Property in the First Degree.

Rogers said, on Friday, deputies working with the Colville Tribal Police located and arrested two other suspects involved, 24-year-old Kurtis C. Bishop, of Omak/Tonasket and 20-year-old Kyle A Snyder, of Oroville. Both men were located hiding in a closet at the Rocky River HUD site outside of Omak.

Bishop booked into the Okanogan County Jail on an outstanding Department of Corrections warrant, an unrelated protection order violation, Theft 1st Degree, Possession Stolen Property 1st Degree, Burglary 2nd Degree, and Malicious Mischief 2nd Degree.

Snyder was booked on Theft 1st Degree, Possession Stolen Property 1st Degree, Burglary 2nd Degree, and Malicious Mischief 2nd Degree.

Rogers said, the investigation is still on going and it is believed that these men along with others are also involved in several other burglaries throughout the County.
