REDMOND, OR -- A Terrebonne man and his 32-year old son were arrested this week, in connection with a September burglary in Redmond. The Sheriff’s Office says there were initially no leads after the home break-in on Northwest Coyner; thieves took guns, ammunition, tools and credit cards. But, after the victim’s bank called to say the card was used at a local business, surveillance footage led detectives to Nathan Winningham.
The Street Crimes Unit conducted surveillance and obtained a search warrant for the Terrebonne home Winningham shares with his 55-year-old father, Melvin Winningham. Detectives found several stolen firearms, ammunition and paperwork for the burglarized home, along with drugs. The elder Winningham was arrested Monday. He faces several charges, including being a felon in possession of a firearm and meth possession.
The younger Winningham was taken into custody the following day, after a K-9 deputy found him hiding in a bathroom in a northeast Redmond home he was known to frequent. He's charged with burglary, theft, identity theft, fraudulent use of a credit card and violating his probation.
