Two Arrested for Burglary in Vacant Home (Photo)

CENTRAL POINT -- A man and woman are in jail after deputies found them inside a vacant home in the 2600-block of Old Stage Road on Thursday. Deputies say the two suspects -- along with other squatters -- have ransacked the property over the last year.

On February 15, 2018, at 1:33 p.m., deputies responded to an alarm at the residence and found two people trespassing in the house. The suspects were identified as Alonso Miguel Ramirez, 37, and Kristine Lucille Stone, 39, both transient in the Medford area.

Ramirez and Stone were lodged in jail on burglary and trespass charges. Additionally, Ramirez had two warrants for his arrest for possession of meth and failure to appear on a theft charge; Stone was held for a probation violation. Jackson County Animal Control took custody of a dog found at the property.

Deputies have responded to the same residence numerous times in the past year due to problems with trespassers. They have also responded for two alarms at the residence since the first of the year; this is the first time trespassers were present when deputies arrived to investigate.

Deputies say owners of vacant homes must be vigilant. For those who live out of the area, it's a good idea to have a local caretaker or property management company to keep an eye on the property. Security systems and surveillance cameras are also valuable tools for prevention and investigation.
