Springfield police report foiled burglary attempt
SPRINGFIELD - Police interrupted a burglary Saturday after a neighbor reported suspicious activity at a house on South 51st Place.
Officers said they caught one suspect, a woman, in the backyard and found a man still inside when they arrived at about 4:45 p.m. The man tried to run out the front door when he heard a police dog but police were able to take him into custody, Sgt. Tom Borchers said.
Police arrested Ginger Annette Hess, 45, and James Lawrence Kinney, 25, both described as transient. They were being held in the Lane County Jail on charges of burglary, theft, attempted theft, being felons in possession of a firearm and criminal mischief. Kinney also is charged with possession of drugs and burglary tools.
Police said the suspects pried a rear door and broke out a back window to get inside the house. The home was ransacked and the victim's property - including DVDs and two firearms - was stacked near the back door, police said.
