MERLIN, Ore. — Deputies took two suspects into custody after responding to a call about a possible burglary in the North Valley area on Friday morning, according to the Josephine County Sheriff's Office (JCSO).

Dispatch received a report of an "audible alarm" from a home in the area just after 10:30 a.m. When deputies arrived in the area, they saw two men fleeing on foot.

The deputies chased down both suspects in a foot pursuit, according to JCSO. Both 28-year-old Tanner Baine Sayre and 20-year-old Bryce Blake Widner were taken into custody without incident.

Both Sayre and Widner were brought to the Josephine County Jail and face charges of Burglary I, Theft I, Criminal Mischief I, Escape III and Interfering with a Police Officer.
