Business Burglary Investigation in La Pine

Deschutes Co. Sheriff's Office

On April 8, 2019, at approximately 5:43am, deputies with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office responded to a reported burglary at the Wickiup Station Sports Pub in La Pine, located at 52600 Hwy 97, La Pine, OR 97739.

Deputies and detectives were at the scene throughout the morning investigating and collecting evidence.  Investigators have been able to recover video surveillance that shows at least two suspects arriving and subsequently forcing entry into the business just after 4:00am this morning.  The suspects removed a safe from the business and then fled from the scene.  One suspect was wearing all black and the second suspect was wearing all black with white stripes on the sleeves of the jack.  Both suspects had backpacks and hid their faces using masks and caps.

Still images from video surveillance are being released in an effort to identify and then locate the persons responsible for this crime.
