On June 12, at about 1 a.m., Eugene Police officers were dispatched to Valley Powersports, 1041 Hwy. 99N, for a theft in progress. Two men were reported to be in the back of the shop going through a side-by-side vehicle. 


As officers were arriving, a sergeant spotted two suspects jumping a fence and running southeast toward the railroad tracks. EPD Drone Team and K9 resources responded along with patrol officers. An officer came across the two suspects and stopped them at 1006 Bethel Drive. One of the suspects, Michael Eric Tavernier, age 35, had warrants for his arrest, and the other Terrance William Stevens, age 25, had an attempt to locate from an unrelated case. 


After an investigation, during which damage to ATVs at the stores was found, both were arrested. Stevens was lodged at Lane County Jail on charges of Criminal Trespass in the Second Degree, Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree, and two counts of Carry Concealed Weapon (concealed brass knuckles, and two suspected spring assisted knives). 


Tavernier was lodged on charges of Criminal Trespass in the Second Degree, Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree, and Parole Violation.
