Police Arrest Appliance Theft Suspect

EUGENE, Ore. — The University of Oregon Police Department along with Eugene police have made an arrest after a string of recent thefts.

On Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, a suspect was captured on security camera footage stealing desktop computers from offices at the UO’s Law Center.

After the footage was shown to the public, a local store recognized the suspect and identified him as 58-year-old David Tetukewich of Springfeild.

The store claims Tetukewich stole several appliances from them, using fake receipts to get past store personnel.

Police served a search warrant at Tetukevich’s house Tuesday, arrested him and recovered property including a refrigerator, a washer and dryer set, and a dishwasher.

He’s facing charges of burglary and theft. The investigation is ongoing, and police ask any other businesses who may have been a victim of this to call Eugene police.
