GLIDE, Ore. — A Medford man was arrested in Douglas County on Wednesday after he allegedly broke into a home and multiple vehicles, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

Two women in the town of Glide woke up on Wednesday morning to find an intruder in their home, the agency said. They confronted the man, who left before the homeowners could call 911. Dispatch received a call about the intruder around 6 a.m.

"The caller stated she had woken up to find an unknown adult male in her kitchen," DCSO said. "She and another adult female in the home confronted the male who left."

Deputies and a trooper from Oregon State Police responded to the home on Glide Loop Drive and were able to identify the man from a picture taken by the homeowner. DCSO said that it was 30-year-old Michael Lowell Gilligan of Medford.

Searching the area, deputies found Gilligan walking along North Umpqua Highway with a backpack. The deputies reported seeing Gilligan get into a vehicle owned by the Glide School District, rummaging through compartments.

After stopping Gilligan, DCSO said that the deputies found out he'd stolen the backpack from another vehicle nearby.

Gilligan was arrested and lodged in the Douglas County Jail on charges for Burglary I, two counts of Unlawful Entry into a Motor Vehicle, one count of Theft II, and Criminal Mischief III.

"Deputies state Gilligan was also in possession of a gallon of milk and a can of beets, which are suspected of being stolen," DCSO said. "Anyone with information is asked to contact the Douglas County Sheriff's Office at 541-440-4471 referencing case number 20-4875."
