PORT ORCHARD — Detectives have identified and issued arrest warrants for two suspects in the burglary of a South Kitsap home last week, the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office said Friday.

Two armed men forced their way into a house in the Sunnyslope area of South Kitsap during the afternoon of Nov. 14. Once inside, the men ransacked the residence, which was unoccupied at the time. The burglary was caught on surveillance camera.

The sheriff’s office said items stolen during the burglary include a semi-automatic handgun, personal identifying documents belonging to the residents, credit cards, electronic entertainment console, jewelry, and more.

The sheriff’s office said the suspects were identified as:

— Andrew Michael Hoffman, 28, Asian/Pacific Islander, with black hair, brown eyes, 5-foot-6, about 170 pounds. Hoffman has multiple tattoos on his arms, hands and and hip. He is known to frequent South Kitsap County, Tacoma and South Kitsap. Felony convictions for burglary and theft.

— Tony Rem, 25, Asian/Pacific Island, with black hair, brown eyes, 5-foot-8, 160 pounds, multiple tattoos on his arms, hands, shoulders and chest. He is known to frequent Auburn, Federal Way, White Center and Rainier Valley. Felony convictions for assault.

Two warrants have been issued for first-degree burglary and unlawful possession of a firearm for each. Bail set at $250,000 for each.

The sheriff’s office said the two suspects may still be in possession of a black 2001 Dodge Dakota pickup truck, license B14937V (WA), registered to an address in Spokane Valley.

Persons with any information about Hoffman or Rem, or the Dodge Dakota truck, are asked to contact Kitsap County Sheriff’s Detective Gerald Swayze at (360) 337-4479 or via Kitsap County Central Communications (9-1-1 dispatch) at (360) 308-5400. Reference: Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office case number K14-01167.

Information may also be submitted through Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound: 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) OR text 486 + message to: 274637 (Crimes).

Here is a video report that was broadcast on Q13 FOX News earlier this week:

    Crime is and will get worse under liberal leadership. Look at any place in the world where they run things. Jails and prisons become vacation spots for these guys and they don’t get any real punishment, but liberals are so brain dead that no matter what evidence is in front of them, they continue to stay the course. They shouldn’t be called liberals. They are the true conservative. They don’t want changed.

      The problem isn’t politics. It’s an increase in illegal drug use that’s responsible for the burglaries. The crooks need money for dope.
