POWERS, Ore. -- Four people were arrested after deputies said they trespassed and spent the night in a Powers woman’s barn.
The Coos County Sheriff’s Office and Myrtle Point Police Department responded to Baker Creek Lane at about 7:30 a.m. April 10 to a report of a burglary in process. As they made their way to the property, the suspects drove away in two Jeep SUVs toward Myrtle Point on Highway 242.
Deputies said they found the vehicles and detained four suspects: Todd Flowers, 54; Robert Harris, 55; Donavan Martinez, 22; and Cathlene Blanton, 46.
The suspects entered the barn through an unlocked door and spent the night there, deputies said. A travel trailer had also moved into the barn, which the suspects said belonged to a fifth individual, which authorities have not been able to locate.
Harris told authorities he’d been given permission to enter the barn, but the 74-year-old woman who owns the barn told deputies she’d given no one permission to be in the building.
The four suspects were taken to the Coos County Jail and charged with second-degree burglary, criminal trespass and criminal mischief.
