HUGO, Ore. — A Josephine County couple came home to find their home burglarized and believe whoever did it has a lot of experience. The victim says the thieves took every single thing of value from the home and around property.

The victim believes the burglars are “professionals”, after seeing the damage around his home. NewsWatch 12 exclusively obtained the 9-1-1 tapes from the call to police.

“Just got home and the house is open. The garage is open. And, uh, my motorcycle’s gone and the house…And my wife is afraid to go in the house. I’m trying to get home now,” the victim can be heard saying on the call.

The victim says the burglars broke into his home and his shed earlier this month, taking everything they could, even riding off on his motorcycle. Neighbors actually spotted the burglars on the bike but thought it was the Hugo man just out for a ride.

Since the victim lived in county jurisdiction, the call was referred to Oregon State Police. The investigation is ongoing.
