DCSO, Redmond PD seek tips to find burglar who broke into 5 Sisters, Redmond businesses

(Update: Adding video, comments from one business)

SISTERS, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office and Redmond Police Department requested the public’s help Friday in identifying a suspect in several overnight burglaries where cash was stolen at several businesses in Sisters and Redmond.

Sheriff's Sergeant Jayson Janes said the man forced entry into five businesses -- three in Sisters and two in Redmond -- and took cash, likely all early Friday morning.

Janes identified the Sisters businesses as Bi-Mart and two restaurants, Takoda's Restaurant and Lounge and The Gallery. In Redmond, the businesses were The Beer Stop and one that did not wish their name to be released.

The sheriff’s office released two security-camera images of the suspect, wearing a face mask and red cap, one showing debris on the floor, presumably from the forced entry into that business.

At The Beer Stop, the owner arrived to find the front door shattered. The business was forced to shut down for much of the day. General Manager Matthew Ward said he hoped to get it open again as soon as possible.

"He had a lot of expensive bottles of beer to take, but he was definitely looking for money, I would say. There was nothing to steal.

"We don't keep money here. So he dug around for about two minutes and you know, probably got scared at that point and decided to leave."

Anyone who believes they know who the man is was asked to call 911 dispatch non-emergency line at 541-693-6911 and reference DCSO Case No. 21-32343 or Redmond PD Case No. 21-15294.

  1. I wonder if these businesses share anything in common. Also wonder if this clown is connected to the businesses. Seems really odd that cash would be stolen at all these places, 2 towns apart. I’d guess this guy knows something about these places and it wasn’t just random he picked these specific places.

  2. I’d be willing to bet this guy is knowledgeable about the restaurant industry, maybe a delivery guy who knows where they keep their money.

    1. With that big nose, and large ears, he looks like a proboscis monkey.

      And that smug, self satisfied smirk visible through the mask, his family will recognize him.

      But, hey! At least he will be covering up his nose with the mask from now on!
      (Doofis, had a reasonable excuse to be masked up, and he couldn’t bring himself to even B&E right)
