Two Hermiston residents were arrested Friday, and are suspects in four separate thefts in the past few months.

Chalen James Ottomar, 23, and Meliza Vega Flores, 25, were arrested in the 400 block of Northwest 11th Street. Both are believed to be involved in the thefts, and were lodged in the Umatilla County Jail.

Hermiston Police officers had been notified of a commercial burglary on Southeast 10th Street on Dec. 6, 2018, and later learned of three packages being stolen off porches. Upon investigation, they believed the incidents were all related. They are still investigating the incident.
