SEQUIM — The day after Christmas was not a time for celebration for three Sequim-area residents who were arrested when police found them in an unoccupied Third Street home that did not belong to them, the deputy city police chief said.

Aaron Lenard Davis, 44,Wade Ray Dickerson, 47, and Megan Ashley Hull, 22, were arrested at about 2 a.m. Thursday at a home in the 1700 block of South Third Street, Deputy Sequim Police Chief Sheri Crain said.

The three Sequim-area residents were each booked for investigation of one count of residential burglary and remained in jail with no bond set on Thursday afternoon.

Crain said the three people were likely without a permanent home and trying to find a warm place to stay.

Crain said such occurrences are not uncommon for Sequim police to see during colder months.

Crain said an acquaintance of the home’s owners, who are not in the area, called police saying that someone appeared to be living in the Third Street home.

Police arrived to find the home had signs of forced entry and arrested the three people without incident, Crain said.

Crain said police had uncovered no sign of theft or vandalism, but found some signs of drug use.

She added that anyone whose home or other property will be vacant for a lengthy period of time should make sure to secure it.
