Man sentenced to 10 years for Eugene bank robbery once called 911 during a break-in
PORTLAND, Ore. - A man who made national headlines in 2011 after breaking into a house to take a shower - only to lock himself in a bathroom and call 911 out of concern that the homeowner had a gun - will serve 10 years in prison for robbing a bank in Eugene last year.
DON'T MISS | 'I just broke into a house, and the owner came home'
Police in Eugene arrested Chapek in June 2017 at the Multnomah County Jail, where he was being held after police there say he robbed a US Bank in downtown Portland.
Chapek was on federal probation for bank robbery at the time of the robberies.
Seven years ago, Chapek made national headlines after breaking into a house in Portland - and then calling 911.
He told dispatchers he had broken into a home just as the owner arrived home - and was worried the owner might have a gun.
The homeowner also called 911 after finding the intruder.
The Portland Police Bureau report summed the incident up in a sentence as "Homeowner finds transient in her shower upon returning home."
