A Depoe Bay resident reported waking late Monday night to find a man in her bedroom, rummaging through a file cabinet. The resident confronted him who was in the process of allegedly stealing prescription medications. The two struggled in the doorway of the bedroom.
A neighbor heard the disturbance and came to the resident’s aid, and the two were able to push the male out of the bedroom and then outside of the home.
Both the resident and their neighbor recognized the male as a past acquaintance; 46 year old Kelly NORRIS, of Depoe Bay. Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies located NORRIS at his residence and arrested him on charges relating to the incident.
NORRIS was lodged at the Lincoln County jail on charges of Burglary I, Robbery II, and Theft II and is being held on $260.000 bail. Norris was not armed, but the resident sustained a minor injury to her arm during the struggle.
