Serial burglar pleads guilty to 12 different crimes
A serial burglar pled guilty to a series of burglaries and a robbery today in Josephine County Circuit Court.
The burglar, 21-year-old Michael Ryan Quigley, most notable crime occurred in the 2000 block of N.W. Kip Lane last July. Gary Lilla came home to his residence to discover it had been forcibly entered. He contacted his neighbor, Scott Iverson, to assist him. They confronted Quigley, who pulled a gun on them, before he fled the scene.
Officers located Quigley a short time later at a residence in the 700 block of N.W. Carol Drive and a standoff ensued. The SWAT team was called in and after three hours negotiators managed to convince Quigley to leave the residence and he was subsequently arrested.
During a two-month period, Quigley committed other burglaries on N.W. Midland Avenue, N.W. Starlite Place, Lawnridge Avenue and Williams Highway.
Quigley pled guilty to two counts of first-degree robbery and multiple burglary and theft charges and he is awaiting sentencing.
