On Wednesday February 14, Eugene Police Property Crimes detectives were conducting follow-up on a burglary from Coastal Farm. During the investigation, at around 10:51 a.m., detectives identified one of the three burglary suspects as 29-year-old Jesse Alan Rook. Detectives spotted Rook getting into a vehicle and began to follow him while additional units responded to the area to assist. 

As detectives followed Rook, he began driving erratically. Rook was reported to have been driving on the sidewalks and the wrong way on one-way streets. Rook eventually crashed his vehicle at 7th Avenue and Lawrence and fled the vehicle on foot. He was located hiding under a tarp in the area and was taken into custody without further incident. 

Rook was lodged at the Lane County Jail on charges of Burglary in the Second Degree, Robbery in the Third Degree, Elude, three counts of ID Theft, and Criminal Mischief in the First Degree. Case 24-02094
