Deputies ask help identifying suspect in Union Creek burglary on January 28

The Jackson County Sheriff's Department wants help identifying a 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. on Jan. 28, the Sheriff's Department said in a news release Tuesday. It was the third time in a year and a half that the store had been burglarized.

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

They still haven't identified the second burglar, though. Based on a surveillance photo, he appeared to be at least 6 feet tall and weighed about 160 pounds. He was wearing a letterman-type jacket and sweatpants. The jacket appeared to be light-colored with dark sleeves, but the type of camera equipment used may have reversed the clothing colors in the darkness, police said.

The 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.
