BEND, OR -- A 23-year-old man suspected in a string of car break-ins in northwest Bend, is scheduled to be arraigned Friday afternoon. Deschutes County deputies say they connected Thomas Watson to the car clouts after he rolled his car near the thefts.

 

Deputies first responded to a report of one car break-in, in a neighborhood off Skyliners Road at about 9:40 Thursday morning. While canvassing the area, they found half a dozen more victims, along with footprints in the snow leading to and from each car. During the investigation, a rollover accident was reported near Skyliners Road and Forest Service Road 4606. Responding deputies saw two men who appeared to be walking away from the crash scene; one was wearing shoes that left prints similar to what was found near the break-ins.

 

Deputies say, upon further investigation, they found stolen items like sunglasses and cologne inside the crashed vehicle. Watson was arrested on seven counts of Unauthorized Entry Into a Motor Vehicle, Theft, Heroin Possession and a probation violation.
