On March 11th, 2016 at approximately 6:38 am, the Polk County Sheriff's Office responded to the 8500 block of Red Prairie Rd on a report of a burglary in progress. The information that was relayed through 911 was that a male subject had broken into the house and was still currently inside. The owner of the residence was not at home while this was occurring.

Deputy Jason Ball from the Polk County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene along with an officer from the Dallas Police Department, who responded as backup because of the seriousness of the call. Once the Sheriff's Office and Dallas PD arrived on the scene they surrounded the residence as best they could as they knew the male subject was still inside the house. Deputy Ball began to call out to the male inside the house. A short time later the male emerged from the house with his hands in the air, surrendering without incident. After Mr. Bond was taken into custody the Oregon State Police arrived on scene to help the other deputies search the house to make sure no one else was inside. No one else was found inside.

The male subject that was inside the residence was later identified as 38-year-old Bradley Bond of Monmouth. During the investigation it was determined that Mr. Bond had forced open a side door to gain entry. Mr. Bond's vehicle was searched and a crowbar was found, which was used to pry open the side door. Methamphetamine was also found inside the vehicle which belonged to Mr. Bond. Mr. Bond was transported and lodged at the Polk County Jail on the following charges:

Burglary I (A Felony)
Trespass I (A Misdemeanor)
Theft II (A Misdemeanor)
Criminal Mischief II (A Misdemeanor)
Possession of Methamphetamine (C Felony).

Mr. Bond's total bail has been set at $77,500.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office would like to thank the Dallas Police Department and the Oregon State Police for their assistance.
