Daytime burglars make off with guns, electronics

More than $16,000 in firearms and electronics were taken from a home in northeast Medford after bold burglary suspects entered through an open window during the day, the Jackson County Sheriff's Department reported.

The sheriff's department said in a news release today that residents of a home in the 3600 block of Dodson Drive discovered the crime when they returned home Thursday, April 25, after being gone from 9:50 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Investigators determined the suspect or suspects removed a screen and came in through a window that had been left open. Suspects swiped 13 guns — a mix of rifles and pistols — an Apple iPad, and a laptop computer, the news release said. Several doors were open, and parts of the home had been ransacked. The total estimated value of the loss is about $16,650, police said.

Police and Crime Stoppers of Southern Oregon are asking for the public's help on the case. Calls can be made to the Sheriff's Department tip line at 541-774-8333 or to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-850-0580. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest in this case or other open ones. Callers can remain anonymous.
