Hand sanitizer-drinking suspect held on four felonies after arrest yesterday

Suspect struck K-9 officer Kaiser with a "metal rod" last month, police say


Corylee Everett Bartlett, who was out on parole awaiting a May 15 jury trial for a December 2020 protection order violation, was arrested again yesterday for burglary and other charges at the 2500 block of Prospect Ave. NE. in Olympia.

Bartlett has an extensive history with law enforcement in Thurston and Grays Harbor Counties dating back to 1999. Bartlett, 48, is currently being held in the Thurston County Jail without bail.

He was arrested Dec. 15, 2020 after being found drinking hand sanitizer while hiding in the same house on Prospect Ave., and then fled the scene prior to arrival of the Olympia Police Department, according to the police. OPD K-9 Kaiser was dispatched to track the suspect but the dog was assaulted by Bartlett with a metal rod, according to the police report. Bartlett has four felony charges and a misdemeanor pending for Dec. 15, 2020 which have yet to be resolved in court.

Bartlett’s other recent involvements with law enforcement includes April 26, 2020, at the same 2500 block of Prospect Ave NE. This includes residental burglary, domestic violence, violation of a no contact order and third-degree assault. The court suspended all but 64 days of his 364-day sentence.

In February 2020, Bartlett again was arrested for assault domestic violence. Between December 2018 and August 2019, Bartlett was arrested three times for outstanding warrants.

August 25, 2017, Bartlett was arrested again, earning a five-month jail sentence.

Bartlett crashed his car into the North Thurston High School parking lot in 2015, according to Lacey Police, earning himself 45 days in jail for driving recklessly.

No stranger to the Grays Harbor Court System, Bartlett has several domestic violence, criminal trespass, theft and residential burglary charges from 1999 to 2014.
