ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A Washington man is accused of stealing between $10,000 and $15,000 worth of property from the Pacific Racing Association.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office arrested 25-year-old Christian Busschau of Washougal on Sunday at a home on Pioneer Way.

This comes after deputies responded to the Douglas County Fairgrounds Speedway Complex the day before for reports of missing items. Investigators were able to obtain surveillance video to help identify the suspect.

Most of the stolen items were recovered, but investigators are still looking for 11 2-way radios, chargers, and batteries. The radios may have residue on them where stickers may have been removed, according to DCSO. 

Below is a picture provided by the Douglas County Sheriff's Office of what the missing 2-way radios look like.

Busschau is charged with aggravated theft, criminal mischief, criminal trespass, burglary, and offensive littering. 

If you have information about the missing 2-way radios, please call the Douglas County Sheriff's Office at 541-440-4471, referencing case #20-3490.
