BEND, OR -- An Idaho man is accused in a Monday night burglary, north of Bend. Deschutes County Deputies were dispatched to Destiny Court, just after 9 p.m., after a man returned home and saw someone in his house.
The victim called 911 and started to leave in his car when another vehicle came from the back of the house and nearly hit him. He allowed it to pass, then followed the suspect and provided updates to the dispatcher.
Deputies caught up with the suspect vehicle and pulled it over at Third and O.B. Riley, and arrested 36-year-old Robert Lee Tyson, of Pocatello. A woman with him in the car was released without charges.
Deputies say they found several items belonging to the victim inside Tyson’s car. Tyson is charged with Burglary I and Aggravated Theft (over $10,000). His car was impounded for not having insurance.
