Camas police seek surveillance videos following Halloween burglaries

Suspects burglarized Birch Street Lounge, Camas Slices, Caps N' Taps, Papermaker Pride and Washougal Food Center early Sunday morning

Camas police are asking downtown Camas business owners to check their surveillance videos for information that might help identify suspects of an early Halloween morning burglary spree that damaged at least five Camas-Washougal businesses.

The affected businesses included Birch Street Lounge, Camas Slices, Caps N’ Taps and Papermaker Pride in downtown Camas and the Washougal Food Center on “E” Street in Washougal. 

Camas police said a group of at least three individuals dressed in dark clothing and masks threw a large rock through each business’ front door, entered the buildings through the broken doorways and stole merchandise, including cash from the till, between 4 and 4:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 31. 

The suspects’ vehicle is described as a grey Jeep Wrangler Limited with black trim and black rims and wheels. 

On Monday, Nov. 1, Camas police said they’d already reached out to business owners in the area with known surveillance cameras, but were asking other businesses to check their surveillance videos taken between 4 and 4:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 31, to see if they may have captured the burglaries, suspects or suspect vehicle. Anyone with information about the burglaries is asked to contact Sgt. David Chaney with the Camas Police Department at dechaney@cityofcamas.us or 360-834-4151.
