CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — After almost a year of illegal occupation, deputies say that they have arrested two suspects for squatting in a vacant Central Point home. An alarm system brought law enforcement to the house, which they say is now "ransacked."

37 year-old Alonso Ramirez and 39 year-old Kristine Stone, both Medford-area transients, are being held for burglary and trespass charges. Ramirez also has two warrants for possession of meth and failure to appear—Stone was already on probation. Deputies also found a dog at the property, which Jackson County Animal Control took into their custody.

Deputies say that they have repeatedly responded to this property over the past year, each time because of transient trespassers. The alarm system at the home has gone off twice. However, this is the first time that law enforcement have been able to apprehend anyone when they arrived at the scene.

The police advise homeowners who will be leaving their property unattended for any prolonged length of time to take precautions. They say to have someone in the area (a caretaker or property manager) check on the property regularly. They also recommend surveillance cameras and security systems, which can aid law enforcement in preventing and investigating any trespasses.
