A repeated vandalism suspect was arrested for the sixth time in the past seven weeks, this time for breaking a grocery store window because he was angry, on Saturday, July 31.
Adan Rincon, 38, who lists his address as “transient, Olympia,” has had numerous malicious mischief, vandalism and graffiti arrests in the past few weeks. He was arrested on July 31 for walking up to the Capitol Lake Grocery at 511 Capitol Way S, kicking the window, shattering it.
Rincon’s actions were caught on a surveillance camera.
After being detained by Olympia police, Rincon admitted to kicking the window but not shattering it.
Rincon was booked into the Olympia jail for malicious mischief.
On Monday, Aug. 2, Rincon was brought in front of the Olympia Municipal Court for arraignment on several past arrests. See related stories.
The Olympia prosecutor recommended Community Court for Rincon but did ask for an exclusion order, banning Rincon from the City of Olympia. See related story about Community Court.
The Olympia Municipal Court allowed for the Community Court hearing to be scheduled for Aug. 11, but denied the exclusion order, releasing Rincon without any bail requirement. A recording of the hearing is posted below this story.
