Jacob Henry Gloor, 20, pleaded not guilty Friday to three counts of second-degree trafficking in stolen property and one count each of residential burglary, second-degree theft of a motor vehicle, second-degree vehicular prowl and second-degree identity theft.
Clallam County Superior Court Judge Christopher Melly set the trial date.
Gloor, along with 25-year-old Ryan Michael Vanwinkle, also of Sequim, are accused in the Jan. 17 burglary of a home along Gold Dust Lane northwest of Sequim in which at least $10,000 worth of property — including silverware, jewelry, gold nuggets, DVDs and a car — was reported stolen.
Clallam County sheriff's deputies later recovered the car in a parking lot near Railroad Bridge Park.
The homeowners discovered the break-in Jan. 22 after returning from a vacation.
Vanwinkle is charged with three counts of second-degree trafficking in stolen property and one count each of residential burglary and second-degree vehicle prowl.
Gloor turned himself in to police Feb. 3, while Vanwinkle did the same Feb. 5.
Neither Gloor nor Vanwinkle was listed on the county jail roster Saturday.
Vanwinkle also was set to be arraigned Friday.
Deputies said the pair told them that they had stolen the belongings and sold some of them at pawn shops in Sequim and Port Angeles to get money to buy heroin.
Gloor told deputies he and Vanwinkle had buried the rest in the forest of Robin Hill Park and later led investigators there to recover the items.
