Suspects named in Curry County Burglaries


Curry County Sheriff’s Office has released the names of the suspects in connection with several attempted and completed burglaries that occurred in Southern Curry County. The suspects have been identified as 39-year-old Julia Denice Wheatley. California Highway Patrol identified Wheatley’s partner after a high-speed chase and crash as 48-year-old Danny Wayne Light. According to the police, the suspects use rental vehicles. This allows them to be inconspicuous and to flee without drawing attention. When moving to a new area the vehicle is exchanged. The investigation has grown to more than 17 burglaries in Oregon, California, Nevada and Arizona and over 20 investigators working current cases involving the suspects. Wheatley is still outstanding.
