It was a scary false alarm today in Bend. The report of a blonde boy in the nearby irrigation canal. Deschutes County Sheriff's Officials say it turns out the report was a diversionary tactic an alleged burglar used to throw people off of his trail. The 911 call came in around 10:20 this morning. Sgt. Troy Gotchy with Deschutes County says several emergency units responded from the Sheriff's Office and Bend Fire responded to the alleged water rescue, and did a thorough check of the canal in northeast Bend near Ann Margaret Drive. They found nothing and here's why: it was a story made up by an alleged burglar. “Essentially was it was is: he kicked in the back door. A female that was home came down the stairs, she interrupted this burglary and he told her there was an emergency down by the canal, there’s a kid in the water. And then he fled the scene.” He says they are frustrated over the false alarm and hope the public can help them find the home break-in suspect. “The suspect in the burglary is a white male 6’ 2” to 6’ 4” about 220 to 230 pounds, with blond hair. And he was riding a bike dark colored or camouflaged bicycle. So if anyone saw him in the area, we would really love a phone call.”  Gotchy says the person who stumbled upon the suspect was shaken up when she realized what actually happened; he also says home break ins where someone is at the home are pretty rare in Deschutes County. 541-693-6911.
