PURDY, Wash. - Pierce County Sheriff's Deputies have identified and arrested a person accused of breaking into a dentist office, where they allegedly stole 100 COVID-19 vaccines, but also $100,000 worth of medical equipment.
It's unknown what the person would want with 100 COVID vaccine doses, given that they are free. However, deputies urge caution if you come across someone who offers you a vaccine outside of official vaccination events, medical or dental offices or pharmacies.
Deputies believe this person was also responsible for a salon burglary.
The items have been recovered and charges are pending.
