Sisters man arrested in smokehouse burglary

A 22-year-old Sisters man was arrested Monday after he broke into the Sisters Meat and Smokehouse, according to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.

Sgt. Deke DeMars said deputies were dispatched to the smokehouse around 4:20 a.m. When they arrived, the suspect had already left the area after breaking into the business and stealing multiple different meats and products. DeMars said the suspect, described as a tall, slender man, was seen on video surveillance breaking into the building.

Later Monday, DCSO received an anonymous report that Raymond Seekell was a possible suspect in this investigation, DeMars said.

DeMars said deputies were able to determine Seekell broke into the business. Initially, deputies believed there might have been two people involved in the burglary, but it turned out Seekell broke into the building once, left the view of the camera, changed clothes and returned a second time, DeMars said.

Seekell was arrested on second-degree burglary, second-degree theft and second-degree criminal trespass. He was taken to the Deschutes County Jail.
