Four suspects face charges in wire theft from old mill.

Byline: The Register-Guard

YONCALLA - Deputies arrested four people accused of breaking into an old mill and stealing copper wire worth tens of thousands of dollars, the Douglas County sheriff's office said.

The suspects allegedly cut the wire from breaker boxes, apparently over the course of several days, officials said. Deputies were dispatched to the mill near Yoncalla High School on Elkhead Road about 3:20 p.m. Wednesday. One of the mill owners saw several people inside, stealing the wire. The suspects fled.

Deputies said Teah Naomi Deardorf, 21, of Oregon City, who is seven months pregnant, ran into some blackberry bushes and was arrested by the first deputy on scene. Another deputy tracked Darren George Cornwell, 32, of Fairview to a house where he had stopped to use the restroom. Sonya Colleen Cornwell, 28, also of Fairview was arrested several hours later while playing video games at the Why Not Tavern in Yoncalla. About an hour later, Dale William Tice, 45, of Oregon City walked into the same tavern and was arrested.

All four were charged with burglary, criminal mischief, theft and attempted aggravated theft.
