BEND, OR -- Bend Police now say two of the three men suspected of robbing the Super 8 motel early Monday morning are connected to the armed robbery at the Days Inn Hotel & Suites that occurred Sunday morning.
Investigators arrested 36-year-old Jason House near his southeast Bend home Tuesday afternoon. On Wednesday, 33-year-old Ryan Simpson (right) was arrested in the parking lot of Motel West, where he was staying. The first suspect – 32-year-old Scott Sullivan (left) – was arrested Monday night.
Based on information detectives uncovered during the three-day investigation and from the arrest of Simpson, they obtained a search warrant for a southeast Bend home. During the execution of that warrant, they say they found evidence tying Sullivan and Simpson to the two robberies that occurred within 24 hours of each other.
