Josephine County DA May File Charges on GP Man Caught Breaking into Truck

The Josephine County District Attorney's Office was deciding whether to file charges against a Grants Pass man who was allegedly caught by the Oregon State Police breaking into a parked pickup on Interstate 5 at Highland Hill.

OSP reports troopers detained the 43-year-old man along the northbound lanes of I-5 near milepost 60 on Tuesday morning.

Troopers released few details about the incident, but the vehicle involved in the break-in was identified as a green Chevrolet C-1500 pickup and the suspect tried to run away. He was chased down and detained, but not arrested.

OSP referred charges of Unlawful Entry into a Motor Vehicle and Attempt to Elude Police against the suspect to the DA's office for consideration.
