— Three men have been charged with breaking into three cabins.

Jonathan G. Zigler, 22, of Aeneas Valley, and Barry J. Collins, 29, of Tonasket, were arrested April 7. The third suspect, Aaron D. Zigler, 24, also of Aeneas Valley, was arrested the next day.

Jonathan Zigler and Collins both were charged April 10 with two counts each of residential burglary and second-degree malicious mischief, and one count each of first-degree burglary, second-degree burglary, first-degree theft, theft of a firearm, second-degree theft and third-degree malicious mischief.

Aaron Zigler was charged April 11 with two counts each of residential burglary and second-degree malicious mischief, and one count each of first-degree burglary, second-degree burglary, first-degree theft, theft of a firearm, second-degree theft and third-degree malicious mischief.

The suspects allegedly broke into the three cabins by kicking in the front doors, said Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers.

They allegedly ransacked the cabins and took more than $17,000 worth of items, including camping gear, tools, kitchen ware, a flat-screen television set, toiletries and food.

They also allegedly broke into another small cabin in the area.

One cabin had a game camera that allegedly captured images of three suspects doing the burglaries. Deputies Terry Shrable and Isaiah Holloway began to investigate possible suspects, Rogers said.

The investigation led them to the Zigler residence at 1091 Aeneas Valley Road. They allegedly located several of the stolen items.

After collecting “a large amount of evidence and stolen items,” the deputies arrested Jonathan Zigler and Collins, and took them to the county jail, Rogers said.

The next day, the deputies located Aaron Zigler and arrested him.
