A man returned to his Hubbard home and caught two suspects accused of breaking in, stealing his stuff and even eating his food.
The man told deputies he was away from his house on Broadacres Road Northeast for only 30 minutes and when he returned around 10:20 a.m. Friday he spotted a man and woman walking out.
He said they quickly went back inside, so he called 911 and kept watching for them to leave. He said they eventually ran out toward Interstate 5.
The homeowner stayed on the line and gave dispatchers updates on the suspects' location.
A deputy spotted them near the commercial scales at Milepost 274 and detained George Murray, 29, of Clatskanie, and Charmaine Kline, 30, of Salem. Deputies said they admitted to committing the burglary.
Investigators checked the house and said they had broken a window in a rear door to get in. Deputies said the suspects collected several guns, cash and an iPhone and left some of the items near the door in preparation for getting out quickly.
A nearby shed was also entered, according to investigators, and there was evidence the suspects tried to hotwire the victim's truck.
The victim told deputies he also later discovered the suspects prepared and ate food taken from his house.
Murray and Kline are facing charges including burglary, criminal mischief and being felons in possession of a firearm. Marion County deputies said they both have extensive criminal records.
