Alleged Intruder Held At Gunpoint By Homeowner

A Depoe Bay homeowner took matters into his own hands Friday morning when he found an intruder in his house.

Lincoln County Sheriff”s deputies responded to a home on Breeze Street shortly after 1:30 a.m. Friday after the homeowner called police to report that he was holding a suspected intruder at gunpoint.

The homeowner told police he saw the man trespassing in the back yard and that the man entered his home without permission. There were three people inside the home, one of which was a small child.

Authorities took 25-year-old Justin James of Portland into custody on charges of first- and second-degree criminal trespassing.

Stewart is being held in the Lincoln County Jail on $10,000 bail.
