Lewis County deputies looking for suspected serial burglar who abandoned car during escape

CHEHALIS, Wash. -- Lewis County deputies are doing everything they can to make sure burglary charges are filed against convicted felon Robert Collins who is on the run right now.

Tuesday morning, Lewis and Thurston County detectives searched a vehicle he abandoned in Tenino after driving through a yard to escape. They found a whole car full of what appears to be stolen goods like a computer and cell phones along with cash, drugs and paraphernalia.

"We want to get him into custody because he's probably out there committing burglaries not only in Lewis county but Thurston county as well," said Lewis County Sheriff Robert Snaza.

Collins has been arrested 28 times and has 12 convictions. He hangs around Centralia, Tenino, Olympia and other areas of Thurston County.
