Police arrest man for burglarizing Eugene business

EUGENE, Ore. -- Police arrested a man Friday after they say he took the keys to a Eugene business to return later in the night and steal money from their register.

Eugene police arrested Jeremiah Charles Owens, 21 of Eugene, on three counts of burglary after they connected him to two early morning break-ins at the Eugene Textile Center Friday.

At around 1:15 a.m., police were called out to a burglary-in-progress at the Eugene Textile Center on Highway 99. 

After a brief investigation officers said they found money was taken from the register, but they couldn't find a suspect.

Just before 3 a.m., they received another alarm actuation call at the Eugene Textile Center. An employee of a nearby business called Eugene Police and reported a suspicious person shortly after.

Using the caller's description, police arrested Owens close to the Textile Center. Officers said that he had property from the store on him at the time of the arrest.

Officials said Owens went into a back room at the Eugene Textile Center  Thursday and took a set of keys.
