Yesterday, patrol officers in the 300 block area of Figueroa Street, observed a John Deere Gator Utility Vehicle parked alongside a residence, which had been painted blue. Upon further inspection, officers identified the vehicle and found that it was stolen from Sheldon High School. Police contacted the suspect, Cory Arthur Beeman, age 26, who had been living at the residence with a relative, and arrested him for Possession of a Stolen Vehicle and transported him to the Lane County Jail.
Officers continued to investigate the backyard of the residence where the vehicle was found, and observed a multitude of power equipment, guns and approximately 100 bicycles, and also found that some of the property was connected to a recent burglary.
Police have recovered several truckloads of property from the location and are continuing to investigate the incident.
Important Property Inventory InformationIf you are the victim of a burglary, it is important that you are able to provide a detailed description of your property. If your property is recovered, the likelihood of the property being returned to you is significantly increased if detailed information is in the report. Property inventories can be as simple as listing the items and descriptions on a piece of paper, but if you would prefer, EPD offers a form you can use to assist you.
