The Jackson County Sheriff's Department released this surveillance photo of a man suspected in a January burglary of the Union Creek Resort Store.

Burglary suspect's identity sought

Jackson County Sheriff's Department investigators want help identifying a suspected burglar who broke into the Union Creek Resort Store on a snowy night in January.

Two young men broke into the store at about 3 a.m. Jan. 28, the sheriff's department said in a news release today. It was the third time in a year and a half that the store had been burglarized.

Investigators identified one burglar at Cody James Faber, 22, of Eagle Point. He was charged this spring and was convicted in July on charges of first- and second degree burglary and being a felon in possession of a weapon, court records show. Faber has been sentenced to prison, officials said.

They still haven't identified the second burglar, though. He appears to be at least 6 feet tall and weighing about 160 pounds. He is wearing a letterman-type jacket and sweatpants. A surveillance photo shows a light colored jacket with dark sleeves, but the type of camera equipment used, may have reversed the clothing colors in the darkness, officials said.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Department asks anyone who can identify the suspect or provide other information to call the tip line at 541-774-8333 or Crime Stoppers of Southern Oregon at 1-800-850-0580 and refer to case #13-1834. Callers can remain anonymous.

Information that leads to an arrest is eligible for an award of up to $1,000, provided by Mercedes Benz of Medford.
