Local pastor intervenes in burglary

The suspect, 36-year-old Adam Dunn of Port Orchard, was arrested for second-degree burglary and possession of a burglary tool. He is held in Kitsap County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.

The pastor of a local church helped stop a burglary last week, according to a Port Orchard Police report.

The suspect, 36-year-old Adam Dunn of Port Orchard, was arrested for second-degree burglary and possession of a burglary tool. He is held in Kitsap County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.

According to the report, Terry Baker, the pastor of The Christian Life Center in Port Orchard, called police when he saw a man enter a building close to the Christian Life Center with a crowbar. The pastor first thought the man was the homeowner’s son, but called police after he saw the man pry open the garage door with the crowbar, police said.

Port Orchard Police and Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office deputies surrounded the single-family home on Mitchell Road. According to the police report, a man’s head popped up near a window and the police yelled at him to get out. When police yelled for him to get out, he responded that he was in bed and couldn’t leave. According to the report, the elderly owner of the home was away and that no one should have been at the house. Crowbar marks on the home’s garage door also pointed to burglary, according to police.

Police broke a large picture window and demanded that Dunn come out, according to the report. Dunn eventually stepped out and was arrested by police. The man claimed he was in the house to do yard work and then to go to church, the police report alleges.
