Two Eugene men have been arrested in connection to two home burglaries in the Bethel area. Eugene police had asked for the public's help in tracking down the suspect in one of the burglaries.
Julian Vicente Martinez, 20, was arrested in the 900 block of Highway 99 Saturday on charges of second-degree burglary. Eugene police said the charge is for involvement in an April 24 burglary at a home on Richard Avenue.
At the time, Eugene police said the home's resident interrupted the burglar just before midnight. Police said the burglar had been holding a box of property from the home but put it down and fled through a previously locked gate that had been tampered with.
The burglar left behind his bike with an attached trailer, a hat and a jacket, police said. The trailer contained items stolen from the home, according to authorities.
Martinez was also arrested on a charge of first-degree burglary in connection with a theft at a home on the 3500 block of Wood Avenue. Martinez is accused of committing that burglary April 7 with Clayton Thomas Walton, 24, of Eugene.
Walton is already in jail on unrelated charges of burglary and methamphetamine possession. He is facing an additional first-degree burglary charge for the Wood Avenue burglary, police said.
