A burglary suspect caught in the act by a home owner at 1990 Meadow Glen was apprehended and arrest by Grants Pass police. According to their report, a 58-year old woman returned to her home to find her back door damaged and items in her home disrupted. She saw the suspect, who fled on foot.
Her description enabled authorities to quickly identify 20-year old Jacob Tyler Cottrell, whom they later found running near Three Rivers Medical Center. He was taken into custody. Police recovered from Cottrell items valued at around $100. He will also face charges of vandalism to the woman’s home and probation violation.
