KENNEWICK -- A 29-year-old man is behind bars on $50,000 bail on allegations he was found nearly naked inside a doctor's office by the after-hours cleaning crew.
Jeremy Stanley Dulski pleaded innocent Thursday in Benton County Superior Court to second-degree burglary and first-degree criminal trespass. His trial is set for Sept. 12.
According to prosecutors, a woman was cleaning a gynecologist's office in a Kennewick General Hospital building the evening of July 14 when she walked in to find a man on one of the exam tables.
The suspect, later identified as Dulski, was not wearing a shirt, his shorts were unzipped and he was fondling himself, court documents said. A bottle of gel that is typically used in another exam room was near him, documents said.
The woman left and contacted a hospital security officer, who quickly responded. The security officer allegedly discovered Dulski in the same position, informed him he was trespassing and ordered the reported burglar to leave the West 10th Avenue building.
Dulski "replied that he was high on acid and also stated that he needed to retrieve his shirt, which was in another room," court documents said.
He reportedly got his shirt and exited the office, but the security officer lost sight of Dulski in the stairwell.
A witness saw Dulski try to enter a second building but it was locked. He moved to another building and was able to get in, documents said.
Kennewick police then responded and -- since at least one employee was known to still be inside -- formed an entry team to go into the West Eighth Avenue building and locate Dulski, court documents said.
Police, along with K-9 Inu, found Dulski hiding in the upstairs of the building, documents said. That area was closed to the public for the evening.
Dulski has previously listed a Kennewick address.
In July 2009, Dulski, then of Umatilla, was found inside the Kennewick offices of Tri-Cities Residential Services before business hours. He told an employee that he didn't know how he had gotten there or why he was there, but he reportedly used a computer while in the office.
He ran out of the business and was chased down by police. Dulski was arrested but court records show he was not charged in the incident.
Gang member headed to prison for threats
KENNEWICK -- A known gang member is going to prison for three years and seven months for threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend's mother and owning a gun in spite of a lengthy felony record.
Marco Antonio Lazareno was sentenced for his June 9 guilty pleas to felony harassment and second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm.
The 25-year-old also uses the names Antonio Marcos Deleon and Marco Deleon, according to police and court documents.
Prosecutors allege that early April 27, Lazareno called the cell phone of his ex-girlfriend's mother and told the 45-year-old Kennewick woman her daughter had a ring that didn't belong to her. The woman told Kennewick police she feared Lazareno would carry out the threat.
Officers then went to Lazareno's home in the Woodland Green Apartments on South Conway Street. They heard voices inside the apartment at 2 a.m. but when officers knocked on the door, a man yelled back that he wouldn't open the door and to get a warrant, court documents said.
Several minutes later a man came out but he refused to tell police who was inside. Officers got a search warrant and at 6:30 a.m., members of the Tri-City Regional SWAT team entered the apartment and found Lazareno and two others, documents said.
Lazareno denied calling the woman or living at the apartment, but officers allegedly found paperwork showing it was his residence. The search turned up a loaded .25-caliber pistol in a box of rice in the kitchen cupboard.
Lazareno was on community supervision at the time following his February 2010 release from prison, His criminal history includes three convictions for second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm, two for third-degree assault and one each for delivery of methamphetamine, attempting to elude police and second-degree theft.
