WOODBURN, OR (KPTV) - A 30-year-old man is accused of burglarizing a Mexican restaurant in Woodburn last week.

The burglary occurred at the Casa Marquez Mexican Grill, located at 553 North Front Street, on Feb. 17. Police said the business was without power due to the winter storm when the burglary happened.

Police said investigators developed information that Carl Martushev, of Silverton, was connected to the burglary.

On Monday, investigators served a property search warrant at a home in the 4000 block of Victor Point Road, where police say they found evidence from the burglary.

Martushev was arrested for first-degree theft, second-degree burglary, and first-degree criminal mischief.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information should contact Officer Jonny Ellis or Detective Aaron Devoe at 503-982-2345.
