Redmond burglary results in arrests
A man from Madras and two from Terrebonne have been arrested in connection with a burglary.
According to the report, on March 26, Deschutes County patrol deputies were dispatched to the report of an overnight burglary of a business south of Redmond.
The investigation determined that entry had been made into the business and a safe was stolen. Inside the safe was a handgun, business documents and vehicle titles, and a large amount of cash.
Over the past week, street crimes unit detectives executed four separate search warrants in various parts of Jefferson County in connection with the burglary. The locations included Murray Street, and Cleveland Street, both in Madras; Buckskin Lane, at Crooked River Ranch; and a residence on Highway 97, in Terrebonne.
Through the execution of the search warrants, detectives recovered the stolen safe, including the various business documents and over $100,000 in cash.
Arrested were Thomas J. Zimmerman, 34, of Madras, for possession and delivery of methamphetamine; Ricardo A. Guerrero, 44, of Terrebonne, for second-degree burglary, first-degree theft, possession and delivery of methamphetamine, and possession of cocaine; and Wesley L. Westcott, 31, of Terrebonne, for second-degree burglary, first-degree theft, criminal mischief, and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
The business owner is taking addition security measures to prevent this from re-occurring in the future, and the investigation is ongoing.
