$7,000 of Stolen Property Recovered

EAGLE POINT, Ore. — Jackson County Sheriff’s Office retrieved around $7,000 worth of stolen property and arrested two people.

On Monday morning, owners of a cow pasture reported two people trespassing and harassing them. The sheriff’s office says a 1992 Dodge Caravan and a pull trailer were located stuck in the middle of a cow pasture.

The victims involved in the case say they drove to the property that morning to check on their cattle. When they approached the van in the middle of the field, a man from the van harassed and threatened the victims. The victims immediately left the area and called 911. While leaving the property, they noticed several fence posts and fencing had been removed.

Larry Freeman and Gina Keeler were both arrested after the fencing and fence posts were located inside their trailer. Keeler finally gave consent to search the van and trailer on Friday, and it was determined Freeman was involved with three other incidents prior to being arrested.

The other three incidents took place between the 900 and 6100 blocks of Dry Creek Road in Eagle Point. Three separate residents all reported throughout the day on Monday that items had been taken. Total amount of taken property is around $7,000. Some of those items include gates, bicycles, a heat pump, and refrigerator.

Both suspects have been charged with multiple counts of burglary, theft, trespassing and harassment. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate the possibility of a third person’s involvement in any of the crimes that were committed.
