Man pleads guilty to series of 2017 burglaries at Friday Harbor businesses

After almost a year, a series of thefts at San Juan Island businesses is solved.

Connor William Daniels, 21, of Friday Harbor pleaded guilty to four counts of burglary for break-ins at the following establishments: San Juan Cheese on Nov. 13, 2017; Van Go’s Pizza on Nov. 18, 2017; The American Legion on Nov. 21, 2017; and Roy’s Coffee on Jan. 21, 2018.

His sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 28 at 9:30 a.m. in San Juan County Superior Court.

Mike’s Cafe and Wine Bar and the San Juan Island Food Co-op were also burglarized around the same time. Daniels has not been charged with those crimes.

About $4,000 was taken from all of the businesses combined.

Burglary in the second degree carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in Washington state but Daniels’ personal sentence range, based on past offenses, could differ.

According to court records, Daniels was convicted of one misdemeanor in 2018.
