Date/Time of Incident: 02/12/2013 - 04:00
Incident Location: 1000 block Arcadia Drive, Roseburg, Oregon
Case Number: 13-594
Arrested: Beck, Jeffrey Michael / 18 yoa / Transient
This morning at about 0400 hours, a resident in the 1000 block of Arcadia Drive called to report a suspicious male. The homeowner reported being awakened by his dog barking and a male subject having just knocked on his front door asking if "Herbert" was home. The homeowner told the subject that "Herbert" didn't live there and the subject walked away.
A deputy located the subject, Jeffrey Beck, walking in the 6000 block of Garden Valley Road. A computer check showed an outstanding warrant on Beck for a Parole Violation. As the deputy attempted to take Beck into custody, Beck resisted arrest and tried to strike the deputy with his fist. The deputy deployed his TASER and gained control of Beck. Beck was then taken into custody.
During a consent search of Beck's backpack, the deputy found a newer laptop computer. The deputy went back to the residence on Arcadia and the homeowner confirmed the laptop was his. The deputy and homeowner determined that Beck had entered the residence through an unlocked garage door.
Beck was lodged in the county jail on First Degree Burglary, Second Degree Theft, Resisting Arrest and Parole Violation charges.
