Two Suspected Burglars Arrested

MEDFORD, Ore. — Medford Police say one of two burglary suspects left a jail identification bracelet at a business that they allegedly burgled.

Around midnight on Saturday, a Medford Police Officer observed two subjects walking through the Medford Center; both were carrying an electric heater. The pair told the officer the property was given to them for free. The officer was suspicious but released them.

Later that same night, the officer was flagged down by a Medford business owner who said his business on the 600 block of Market Street was burglarized. The victim told the officer the unknown suspects entered the business through a door, which was possibly unsecured. The suspects stole two electric heaters, valued at $175 each. Inside the business, the officer found a Jackson County Jail identification bracelet belonging to one of the suspects, Apache Hightower.

Officers quickly found the duo in the 300 block of Howard Avenue. They were still in possession of the stolen heaters. Ronald Pollack and Apache Hightower were arrested and lodged in jail. The property was returned to the owner.
