Three suspects arrested in Aloha house burglary
Deputies find several items in car that were reported stolen
Washington County sheriff's deputies arrested three 20-year-old men linked to a burglary Wednesday in the 17000 block of Southwest Johnson Street in Aloha.
Cody Sung Joo Schacht of Beaverton and Cory Foote and Jesus Figueroa-Beltran of Southwest Portland were arrested after deputies pulled over the car in which they were riding. Schacht and Foote face accusations of first-degree burglary, while Figueroa-Beltran is accused of second-degree theft by receiving, said Sgt. David Thompson, spokesman for the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
They were lodged in the Washington County Jail.
A neighbor called 911 around 4 p.m. Wednesday to report seeing two men he didn't recognize enter the house, which he said he believed is a vacant rental property.
Deputies responded to the location and found suspects had cut through a screen and entered though the back door.
Deputies learned the suspects had removed property from the house and departed in a blue Honda driven by a third man.
A deputy spotted the car at Southwest 178th Avenue and Southwest Tualatin Valley Highway and pulled it over. Deputies said they found several items reported missing from the house, including numerous tools, Thompson said.
The three suspects later admitted to entering the house without permission and stealing the items.
