TANGENT, Ore. – A Sweet Home man was arrested Tuesday, accused of breaking into a home in Tangent.

Linn County Sheriff Jim Yon said deputies responded to a home on Highway 99E at about 5:15 p.m. after receiving a report of a burglary.

Deputies found a man on the sidewalk near the location, Yon said, and he was taken into custody.

The man provided two false names but was later identified as Marshall Rogers, 35.

Deputies learned the homeowner had walked by his vacant home and saw that the For Sale sign had been removed. He went to see what was going on, and Rogers reportedly came out of the house and claimed it was his. Rogers left and was then found by authorities.

Investigators said Rogers entered the home through a window and removed a lock box on the front door.

Rogers faces charges of burglary and criminal mischief and was taken to the Linn County Jail.
