Suspect:  Huber, Ryan Paul 43 years of age

                 Sisters, Oregon

Charges:  Burglary I

On 09/09/19 at approximately 0154 hours, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a burglary in progress at 1659 W. Carson Avenue in Sisters, Oregon.  Dispatch advised Deputies that an unknown male subject had entered the house there by breaking down the back the door of the residence.  The suspect (Huber) was confronted by the homeowner who was armed with a rifle.  Huber left the residence after being confronted.

Huber then went to the neighboring house and began ringing the doorbell.  The homeowner there also called 911, and told Huber to leave.  Huber then walked over to the area of the original house he broke into where he was again confronted by the armed homeowner.  The homeowner held him at gunpoint until Sheriff’s Office units arrived on scene.

Huber was detained at the scene without incident, and advised Deputies he believed his family, who lived nearby, was in grave danger and being held hostage.  Several Deputies went to Huber’s residence to conduct a welfare check, and found everyone safe and sleeping.

Huber was arrested for the listed charges, and booked into the Deschutes County Adult Jail.  There were no injuries during this incident.  The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the Black Butte Police Department.

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is a full service agency that oversees the adult jail, provides patrol, criminal investigations, civil process and search and rescue operations.
