Aaron Scott Markishtum, 30, will be arraigned at 9 a.m. in Clallam County Superior Court.
He was charged May 21 with two counts of residential burglary and one count each of second-degree burglary and second-degree attempted burglary stemming from four alleged break-ins in late April and early May.
Markishtum remained in the Clallam County jail Wednesday on $25,000 bail.
County sheriff's deputies suspect Markishtum in the April 27 burglary of a home in the 1900 block of Joyce-Piedmont Road, where a surveillance camera caught a man matching Markishtum's description placing items from the home in a silver minivan.
The home's door had been kicked in, a method of entry, deputies said, that linked Markishtum to the burglaries of a home on Freshwater Bay on April 28 and two buildings near Greywolf Elementary School in Carlsborg — one a garage on Addi Lane on April 27 and the other a home on Edgewood Lane on May 2.
Shoeprints on doors
Shoeprints from the size-13 Nike Air Max sneakers Markishtum was wearing when he was arrested were found on all four doors, the Sheriff's Office said.
The Freshwater Bay homeowner reported jewelry missing. The Edgwood Lane homeowner had a bicycle stolen.
The bicycle was recovered not far from the home later that day, the Sheriff's Office said.
Deputies tracked down the minivan seen at the Joyce-Piedmont Road, which was registered to a family member of Markishtum's.
Markishtum had been using it the past few days, they said.
The family member identified Markishtum in surveillance images taken from the Joyce-Piedmont Road home, the Sheriff's Office said.
