Sheriff: Homeowner may have shot burglary suspect
ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The man officials say was part of a botched burglary in Myrtle Creek in June turned himself in, and authorities say he might have been hit by a bullet fired by the homeowner that interrupted that burglary.
On June 17, a homeowner in the 2800 block of Dole Road reported he had interrupted a burglary at his residence and fired a pistol at the two suspects.
Last Thursday, the Douglas County Sheriff's office served a search warrant at a residence in Myrtle Creek and arrested Brett Cashman, 49, and Susan Steede, 24. The homeowner, and other suspect in the incident, Terry Ingles, 49, the other suspect in the burglary wasn't home at the time, the Sheriff's office said.
On Saturday just after 1:00 pm, Ingles turned himself in at the Sheriff's office in Roseburg.
Deputies say Ingles had an injury to his right hand that was consistent with a gunshot wound.
He was arrested and lodged in the Douglas County Jail, charged by authorities with four counts of first degree burglary, unlawful possession of methamphetamine, initiating a false report and first degree theft by receiving.
The Sheriff's office says the case is still under investigation.
