EUGENE, Ore. – A burglary suspect was arrested after falling down a 15-foot hole.

Police said an employee at Oregon Pacific Bank, 59 E. 11th Avenue, reported a break-in at 7:15 a.m. on Dec. 7.

No suspects were found during a search.

Police determined a suspect description, and a CAHOOTS call came in reporting a man found with a foot injury a short distance from the bank.

Investigators said the suspect threw stolen items out a ground-floor window and jumped after them, but he ended up falling down a 15-foot concrete hole that allows access to a basement window below.

Police contacted suspect Brett McDonald, 53, of Cottage Grove at a local hospital and cited him for second-degree burglary.
