COOS BAY, Ore. -- A Coos Bay man was arrested after police were alerted to a possible break-in by a home alarm company.

Around 11:42 a.m. Sunday, Coos County Sheriff’s deputies and Coquille Tribal Police responded to a home on Cape Arago Hwy for a reported residential alarm and burglary.

The alarm company for the residence had called and advised someone was inside the residence, police said.

The property owners were called and the incident was confirmed. It was also relayed that one of the home owner's had the suspect detained, the report said.

Law enforcement arrived and took the suspect, 58-year-old Robin Shook of Coos Bay, into custody.

Police say they learned Shook had unlawfully entered the garage of the property and then attempted to enter the residence but was unable to do so.

While attempting to take Shook into custody and place him into a patrol vehicle, he became non-compliant and attempted to free himself from the deputies, police said, but he was immediately subdued and placed in the vehicle.

Shook was transported to the Coos County Jail and lodged for Burglary II, Criminal Trespass II, and Resisting Arrest. His bail was set at $37,000.
