* A video security system led to the arrest of a pair of suspects Wednesday accused of breaking into a home on Huckleberry Ridge near Whaleshead north of Brookings. The home owner notified the Curry County Sheriff’s Office that while he was not at the residence, he could see two suspects via his video monitor. Using the video and the K-9 unit, deputies were able to track the suspects to a nearby home. Arrested were Clarence Jackson, Jr., age 52, and Sebrina Gundlach, 58.
