Early Sunday Morning Wilsonville Police Dept in conjunction with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office responded to a burglary in progress in the Oak leaf Manufactured Home Park on Wilsonville Rd.

Williams was confronted by the daughter who quickly ran to her parents room to let them know a man was in her room. The father, Christopher Rothaug confronted Williams inside their residence and told him he needed to leave.
Wilsonville Police Officers in conjunction with the Clackamas County Sheriff' Office quickly responded to the area and located a Williams walking on SW. Wilsonville Rd near SW. Brown Rd. which is less than one quarter mile away from the scene. Williams was detained at the scene and subsequently arrested from breaking into the home.
Williams was lodged into the Clackamas County Jail on charges of Burglary in the first degree with a $50,000 bail. There is no relation the the victim or suspect.
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office would like to extend to the citizens that with the recent warm temperatures, and people placing air conditioning units in their windows, take the time to make sure units and windows are secure to help prevent criminals from using these areas as access points to enter your house. Criminals often look for easy ways to get into your house and improperly and unsecured window mounted air conditioning unit not only makes for an easy target, but also an easy access point.
