The sounds of motorcycles led sheriff's deputies in Pend Oreille County to identify two burglary suspects this week.
Sean T. Ponder, 26, and Reesa M. Yancy, 23, were arrested last week after a residential burglary on Deer Valley Road near Newport.
They're accused of stealing motorcycles, tools and guns from the home on Tuesday. Deputies were canvassing the neighborhood for leads when they heard motorcycles in the distance, according to the Pend Oreille County Sheriff's Office. They drove closer to the noise and contacted homeowners who directed them to the home where the motorcycles came from.
Ponder and Yancy were arrested at the home. Deputies recovered the stolen items, as well as other suspected stolen property.
While driving the suspects to jail, deputies heard a report of another burglary nearby. They listened to a description of the stolen items and realized they matched goods found with Ponder and Yancy, the sheriff's office said.
