According to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, at about 8:07 p.m., law enforcement was dispatched to a report of a burglary in progress near the 1600 block of Perit Huntington Road at the east end of town. A deputy arrived and spotted a man walking in between two houses in the neighborhood. The man was identified as 26-year old Stephen Calhoun of Redmond. He was allegedly intoxicated, and the deputy detained him.

Additional deputies responded to the residence, along with assistance from the Black Butte Police Department and the Oregon State Police. Law enforcement personnel surrounded the home and all the residents of the home were evacuated. The homeowners believed there was still someone in the residence as law enforcement arrived.
