FERNDALE, Wash. — The third and reportedly last suspect was arrested and booked into the Whatcom County Jail yesterday following a reported July 3rd home invasion burglary at a residence in the 6100 block of Aldrich Road.

WCSO Chief Deputy Kevin Hester said in an email, “Mr. Scharton called in last night to 9-1-1 and requested to turn himself in as he knew he was wanted. Deputies from our Criminal Interdiction Team met with Mr. Scharton and took him into custody without incident.”

Scharton, Danielle N Coakley, age 34, and Antini J Saselli, age 31, were all identified as suspects in the 7am burglary.

Saselli was arrested after deputies were dispatched to check on a male who was reported to be disoriented and suffering from a cut on his hand in the 8000 block of the Guide Meridian.

Coakley was arrested Saturday, July 6th, after being captured in Snohomish County according to Sheriff Bill Elfo.

Saselli and Coakley have prior convictions in Whatcom County Superior Court for felony possession of controlled substances. Scharton was already scheduled to appear in court in next month regarding charges of forgery, theft, identity theft and bail jumping according to court records.

All 3 remained in custody as of this morning according to jail records.
