[ARCHIVED] Man Arrested for Extensive August 2018 Burglary

Brooks

At 5:22 p.m. on Tuesday, November 20, and after two days of searching and interagency efforts, Jason Dean Brooks, age 35, of Eugene, was taken into custody with the aid of Eugene Police SWAT for an August 2018 Burglary case. EPD Property/Financial Crime detectives, FBI, EPD Patrol and EPD SWAT and Crisis Negotiation Team assisted with watching and safely taking Brooks into custody at the Eugene Hilton on the 9th floor. 

 

The arrest came after months of investigation and hard work. Tuesday’s arrest was precipitated by a traffic stop in Newport, Oregon, over the weekend. An Oregon State Police trooper had pulled over a vehicle Brooks was in and he fled from it. That kicked off follow-up on leads and surveillance efforts on the coast and in the Eugene area. During this effort, detectives contacted local hotels and found Brooks was at the Eugene Hilton. When Brooks was contacted, he tried to flee out of the room and fire escape, but was quickly and safely taken into custody by EPD SWAT. Less Lethal options were used during the arrest.

 

Brooks was charged with Burglary in the First Degree, Aggravated Theft in the First Degree, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm.

 

Anthony McThrow, another suspect in the Burglary case, was arrested September 12   and charged with Burglary in the First Degree and Aggravated Theft in the First Degree.

 

The burglary at a home in southwest Eugene on August 27, 2018, was extensive. The home had been ransacked and a storage safe taken, along with firearms, jewelry, product, and a very large amount of cash from a legitimate business. Case 18-14110
