Bend PD: Burglary suspect arrested after returning to scene of the crime

A Bend man was arrested Sunday after trying to break into one home, breaking into another home then returning to the scene of the crime later in the day, according to police.

Sgt. R.C. Bigelow said early Saturday around 4:45 a.m. officers responded to a report of an attempted burglary at a home on SW Blakely Road. The responding officers were directed by the homeowner to a window that had been broken out that morning. The suspect left the area before getting inside, Bigelow said.

During the investigation officers recovered evidence at the home left by the suspect.

Later that day at 3:22 p.m. officers responded to a reported burglary at a home on SW Millbrook Lane. The homeowner reported coming home to find someone had broken into their home, damaged property, and stole property reported to be worth more than $10,000.

Investigating officers recovered evidence at the home linking these two burglaries.

At 10:44 p.m. Sunday night, officers responded to the home on SW Millbrook again after the homeowner called 911 to report a man trying to open the front door, Bigelow said. The suspect ran from the scene while the homeowner was on the phone with 911.

Officers responding to the report established a perimeter and K9 Rony and his handler responded to track the suspect. An officer on the perimeter saw a man matching the suspect description running to the south on SW Powers Road near SW Blakely Road.

The man, identified as 30-year-old Brenton Schaumann, was taken into custody without incident. Evidence recovered from Schaumann was linked back to the Burglary on SW Millbrook Lane, Bigelow said.

Schaumann was taken to the police station for further evidence collection. Bigelow said Schaumann actively resisted officers efforts to be taken to jail, forcing officers to take him to the ground. He was put in a WRAP restraint before officers took to jail. He suffered an abrasion during the incident, Bigelow said.

He was charged with first-degree burglary, two counts of first-degree attemped burglary, aggravated theft, resisting arrest and other charges.
