PORT ANGELES — Steven Dean Goodman, wanted in connection with a Sunday morning burglary in Port Angeles, will be featured on a television show focusing on fugitives wanted across the state, the show's producer and host said Thursday.

Port Angeles detectives continue to follow leads in the search for Goodman, 24, said Deputy Police Chief Brian Smith on Thursday, and have made no new arrests in the case.

Smith said he had contacted “Washington's Most Wanted” on KCPQ Channel 13 about featuring information in the search for Goodman, a Port Angeles man.

“Washington's Most Wanted” producer and host David Rose said Thursday that Goodman is set to be featured on the 9:30 p.m. airing of the show on KZJO Channel 22 tonight and the 10:30 p.m. airings of the show on Q13 Fox tonight and Saturday.

In the past

Smith said the Police Department working with “Washington's Most Wanted” in the past has led to multiple felony arrests.

Police served a search warrant for Goodman and Cory Alexander Furford, 24, at a home in the 2300 block of East Third Avenue in Gales Addition on Tuesday after learning Goodman likely was there.

Police did not find Goodman but arrested Furford on an unrelated felony warrant.

Manhunt

Goodman is the last of three people wanted in connection with the burglary of a home on Cherry Street on Sunday morning that triggered a daylong manhunt.

Matthew Tyler Charles, 27, and Roxanne Rae Venske, 24, were arrested at about 9 p.m. Sunday after they were found in the 1400 block of Dan Kelly Road in west Port Angeles.

The property's owner, Dean Langdon, came upon the burglary in progress at about 9:30 Sunday morning and called 9-1-1.

Langdon told a 9-1-1 dispatcher that two men were coming out of the home and that one was holding two firearms covered in blankets.

The resident of the home that was burglarized told police a .44-caliber Magnum rifle, a 12-gauge pump shotgun and $150 in cash had been stolen.

Charges

Charles has been charged with two counts each of theft of a firearm and unlawful possession of a firearm, and one count each of first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary.

His arraignment is set for 1:30 p.m. Aug. 2. He remained in the Clallam County jail Thursday in lieu of $250,000 bond.

Venske, who remained Thursday in the Clallam County jail in lieu of $15,000 bond, has been charged with one count of first-degree burglary in connection with allegedly driving Charles and Goodman away from the home in a red or burgundy Pontiac Grand Prix.

Her arraignment is set for today.

Goodman is described as 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds. He has blue eyes and light-colored hair.

If Goodman is seen, phone 9-1-1 emergency dispatchers or the Police Department at 360-452-4545.
