Man arrested for breaking into home, waking sleeping teens

A former Lake Oswego man is in jail on allegations he broke into a local home and pulled a blanket off two sleeping 16-year-old girls.

Police arrested Chandler McLane Olson, 36, after he turned himself in Nov. 10. Olson had fled the state for Idaho, where he now lives, according to police, who said his parents still live in Lake Oswego.Chandler McLane Olson

At about 3 a.m. Nov. 4, officers responded to a home in the Palisades Crest area on a reported burglary in progress. A man wearing only a jacket had entered the house and gone into a room where two girls were sleeping. One of the girls screamed when she awoke, and the man fled, taking with him a laptop computer that belonged to one of the teens, according to police.

Capt. Dale Jorgensen said detectives discovered that the man broke a window near the front of the house to get inside. They identified a suspect after interviewing the girls and the adults who were home at the time. Jorgensen said they provided "excellent statements" with plenty of detail and relevant information.

"The more detail we have, the better the case becomes," he said. "That helped."

In addition, detectives had "some information from a previous similar crime," according to police. Jorgensen declined to provide any more information about the other crime.

Olson faces charges of first-degree burglary, second-degree theft and sex abuse and a detainer for a parole violation, police said. He is being held in Clackamas County Jail.
