A resident of the Country Sunset Mobile Park was startled when a man walked into her home Friday.
While patrolling in the area of 27th Street, near County Sunset Mobile Park, a Deschutes County Deputy observed a suspicious male and attempted to contact him, but he was obviously avoiding contact.
The male subject (later identified as Joshua Geraghy) jumped the fence into the Sunset Mobile Park and when the Deputy attempted to approach and talk to him Geraghty entered a residence and then quickly left. The Deputy asked the resident if she knew Geraghty, she replied that she did not and he had scared her when he had walked into her house.
The Deputy contacted Geraghty and was about to take him into custody when Geraghty ran on foot, west through the park.
The Deputy lost Geraghty for a short period of time, but later located him and took him into custody in the driveway of a residence on Wilderness Way (off 27th Street and just southwest of where he was last seen). The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by BPD Officer Kinsella and his K9 partner.
Geraghty was lodged at the Deschutes County Jail on charges of Possession of Methamphetamine, Criminal Trespass I, Interfering with a Peace Officer and Attempted Eluding a Peace Officer( Misd) and a Klamath County Probation Detainer.
