REDMOND, OR -- A convicted thief was arrested Saturday, suspected in a number of new burglaries. Investigators say 49-year-old Dennis Madden matches the description of a man seen breaking into cars near NW 10th and Birch. Witnesses saw a man leave the area in a red Ford Explorer. 

 

When officers stopped that suspect vehicle, Saturday, they contacted Madden and found a window punch, ski mask, gloves and other burglar tools in his possession, as well as a woman’s purse reported stolen the night before. 

 

During a search of his southwest Redmond home, officers found property believed to be stolen from several residential and vehicle break-ins in Bend and Redmond. Madden has an extensive criminal history and, at the time of his arrest over the weekend, he was on supervised release following a 60-month prison sentence for burglary and theft relating to a 2010 Redmond PD investigation. 
 
Investigators credit the detailed observations by victims for leading to Madden's arrest. Police remind everyone to remove valuables from vehicles and encourage the itemization of property, including a record of serial numbers and detailed descriptions. RPD is partnering with LeadsOnline to assist in the task. Click HERE to create an online account where you can document necessary information.
