PORT ORCHARD — A second suspect in the April 29 burglary of a Gorst firearms store was arrested July 25 at his home in Black Diamond, King County.

Charles Wilbur-Williams III, 20, was taken into custody without incident around 2:30 p.m. by deputy marshals with the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force.

He was booked into Kitsap County Jail on an outstanding arrest warrant from July 19 for first-degree burglary and theft of a firearm. Bail was set at $750,000.

Wilbur-Williams is the second suspect apprehended in the investigation into the forced entry and theft of approximately 90 handguns and rifles from Boerner’s Firearms, located on State Highway 3 West in the Gorst area of South Kitsap.

Borwieck will soon be extradited to Kitsap County, according to the sheriff’s office.
