INTERVIEW: Rep. Andrew Barkis speaks about early-morning attack at his multi-use building

Reward for information being offered

By Danny Stusser, The JOLT News:

Early last Monday, two masked men broke a window at Hometown Property Management, a business owned by State Rep. Andrew Barkis (WA-District 2, R), and attempted to set the building on fire.

Surveillance footage captured the two individuals at the Fourth Avenue building a little after 4 a.m. on Monday last week, June 13. See video with this story.

One of the men hit a window three times using what appears to be a hammer. The second male then threw a lit flare into the window. Both left immediately. The flare landed on a ceramic tile floor and burned itself out. 

Barkis spoke to The JOLT at his office on Friday about the incident. The Olympia Police Department, meanwhile, said that its investigation is ongoing.

This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
