WESTON -- Two city men have been arrested after a burglary involving firearms, according to the city's police spokesman.

On Friday officers responded to a call concerning suspicious circumstances in the 200 block of North Franklin Street at the Pine Creek area, Sgt. Joshua Henningsen said Monday.

The first suspect, David Stine, 18, transient, apparently used the creek to access the back of the property of an elderly resident who had recently moved to a senior care facility, Henningsen said.

While at the house, Stine entered two separate travel trailers and stole various items, Hennningsen said.

Officers located Stine inside one of the trailers and took him into custody without incident. Several stolen items were recovered. Further investigation led to the discovery of two firearms.

Stine was lodged at the Umatilla County Jail for investigation of two counts of burglary and one count of criminal trespass, according to Henningsen. Stine's bail was set at $36,000.

The investigation regarding the firearms is ongoing.

While investigating the incident, officers recognized and arrested Humberto Salinas, 24, 311 E. Main St., for investigation of a probation violation, Henningsen said. Salinas has been listed under Umatilla County's "most wanted" list. His bail at Umatilla County Jail is set at $20,000.
