GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Bradley Lloyd, 24, and Clyde MacDonald, 23, are now in custody after being charged for a string of burglaries through Josephine County.

Around 5:20AM on December 1st Grants Pass Department of Public Service officers were dispatched to the Suzuki Motorcycle store on Rogue River Hwy. As officers were arriving, they realized that two men were trying to steal a motorcycle by loading it into the back of a stolen truck.

When officers confronted the two suspects next to a white Toyota Pickup, parked across from the Suzuki Store, the two men ditched the motorcycle and drove toward the parked patrol vehicles, narrowly missing them. The fleeing truck side-swiped a wooden
fence before entering onto Rogue River Hwy., heading eastbound. 

Officers were able to get the license plate numbers and discovered that the truck had been stolen from a Union 76 gas station in Selma.

Grants Pass Detectives took over the investigation and around 9:20AM they received a report from the Josephine County Sheriff's office of another stolen vehicle. The second stolen truck had been taken from a resident on Gordon Way in Grants Pass. When police arrived at the scene they found the first stolen truck, which had been used in the Suzuki break-in, abandoned.

At about 10:25 AM, GPDPS officers were dispatched to a burglary on NE Beavilla View Dr. One of the resident's neighbors told NewsWatch 12 that two men had broken down the door and were attempting to steal the TV when they were confronted. The neighbor said she didn't think they had expected anyone to be home and they took off as soon as they were confronted.

Just before noon officers found the stolen truck near NE Beacon Dr. and Hillcrest Ln. The truck took off, headed south on Beacon Dr. and the officers lost track of it. Then 20 minutes later another officer found the truck again near Hillcrest and 7th St. The truck continued through the Denny's parking lot and one of the suspects, Clyde MacDonald got out of the truck before it sped off.

The driver, Bradley Lloyd, headed toward NW Vine St. while officers arrested MacDonald. Officers then set up tire spikes at the intersection of Redwood Hwy. and Riverbanks Rd. Lloyd flew through the spikes, flattening two tires, but not stopping. Police then began a high-speed chase that ended when Lloyd lost control of the truck and took off on foot. Oregon State Police Troopers, GPDPS Officers, and Josephine County Deputies found Lloyd about 50 years up a hill and were able to arrest him.

After going through both stolen vehicles detectives found evidence to positively place both Lloyd and MacDonald at the previous burglary in Selma.

According to the GPDPS, Lloyd is facing the following charges:

  1. Burglary 1
  2. Unauthorized Use of Vehicle (2 Counts)

  9. Reckless Driving (2 Counts)
  10. Elude Police on foot
  11. Escape 3

  1. Burglary 1

  3. Theft 1
