On March 16 at 1:21 a.m., a 63-year-old man living in a residence in the 1800 block of W. 24th Avenue was awakened by a loud crashing sound. It turned out that a 2003 silver Saturn sedan had run into his house. Two people were spotted walking from the vehicle.

Police responded and Coburn became aware of their presence and disappeared into a building. Coburn went upstairs and then tried to escape out the back, where an EPD officer was waiting to take him into custody.

Coburn was arrested without incident on charges of Unauthorized Use of Vehicle and Hit and Run. (Case 16-04256)
