Burglary Arrests In Josephine County

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Four people are arrested for a string of burglaries in Josephine County, and the investigation leads to another man who had just been released from jail because of budget cuts. But those financial problems mean just one of those suspects will be behind bars.

Grants Pass Department of Public Safety arrested those suspects today. They are charged with being part of a number of burglaries, including the theft of $10,000 worth of items from the United Community Action Network in Grants Pass.

But police say because of budget cuts to the jail, all four suspects were only cited and released. Their information has been passed along to the district attorney’s office. During the investigation, police also found Nathaniel Young, who was just released from jail Wednesday because of county budget cuts and had failed to appear for a court date. He is back behind bars tonight on charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, and possession of meth.
