Burglary suspect enters plea

Print Article

SANDPOINT — A Bonner County man pleaded not guilty Monday to burglarizing Wrenco Arms last month.

David Anthany Dorland Jr.’s plea clears the way for a two-day jury trial in 1st District Court in February 2018. Dorland is free on a reduced bond of $2,000 while the case is pending, court records show.

Dorland, 25, is accused of forcing his way into Wrenco Arms, stealing a pistol and causing more than $1,000 in damages in the process, according to court documents. Wrenco Arms was broken into on Oct. 15.

Dorland was identified as a suspect because the store is under video surveillance. He was subsequently charged with burglary and malicious injury to property at the felony level.

Sandpoint Police confronted Dorland, who admitted he was behind the break-in, according to a probable cause afidavit. He allowed officers to search his Lake Street home in order to recover a stolen Heckler & Koch .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol. The handgun, which retails for more than $1,000, was subsequently found in a field, the affidavit said.

Dorland told officers that he used a hammer, a rock and his feet to pierce through laminated security glass on a front door. Once inside, a display case was shattered to gain access to its contents, the affidavit said.

Dorland was convicted of burglary in 2013, according to the Idaho Supreme Court Data Repository. He also has several misdemeanor drug convictions.
