A 22-year-old Sisters man was jailed on Monday, December 23, in connection with an early morning break-in at Sisters Meat and Smokehouse.

Deschutes County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched at 4:22 a.m. to a reported burglary in progress at Sisters Meat and Smokehouse on South Spruce Street in Sisters.

When deputies arrived the suspect had already left the area after breaking into the business and stealing meats and products. The suspect was seen on video surveillance breaking into the building.

Later on December 23, authorities received an anonymous report that Raymond Seekell was a possible suspect in this investigation. Deputies were able to determine that Seekell broke into the business.

It was originally believed there might have been two people involved in the burglary; however deputies learned that after Seekell broke into the building the first time, he left the view of the camera, changed his clothing and returned a second time.

Seekell is the only suspect in this case and there is no one outstanding, DCSO reports.

The Smokehouse owner thanked DCSO and the community for their work in quickly identifying the Sisters man, who was lodged at Deschutes County Jail on charges of second-degree burglary, theft and criminal trespass.
