Local law enforcement is asking anyone with information regarding a Monday morning robbery on Orin Rice Road to contact the Stevens County Sheriffâs Office.
According to Sheriff Kendle Allen, an armed robbery occurred at the Panorama Mobile Home Park off Orin Rice Road around 2 a.m. Monday, July 6. Two suspects, thought to be men, broke into the home of a couple that manages the mobile home park. Both of the suspects wore masks, and one allegedly had a firearm.
Allen said the couple was not injured during the robbery.

Last winterâs relative heat wave was a blessing for Romlyn Conn, 63, a homeless resident of Colville. Conn is easy to spot: her ducks faithfully waddle alongside her and her well-behaved dog, Harvey. She fondly regards her little family as her âtraveling petting zoo.â Conn figures she walks around six miles a day, passing the time until she finds a spot to spend the night. After 33 years with her former roommate, it was a decidedly unfriendly parting that launched Conn on her current path of being homeless.
