On Thursday, May 16, at about 2:56 a.m., Lincoln City Police responded to the Beach Club Restaurant on a report of a burglary in progress at the location. Lincoln City Dispatch received information from the business owners that they were seeing a male subject inside the closed business on their surveillance system.
Lincoln City Police officers as well as an Oregon State Police Trooper and a Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy quickly arrived at the business and surrounded the perimeter. A short time later the owners of the business arrived at the location and provided the keys to get in.
A team of officers made entry and began searching the interior where they found the male subject and took him into custody without further incident. The male was identified as 31-year-old Jason Daniel McIntyre of Toledo.
The subsequent investigation determined that McIntyre had been drinking inside the business earlier that morning when it was open and prior to the business closing he hid in one of the unused areas of the building. After the business closed and all the employees left, McIntyre came out from the room he had been hiding in and went to the bar where he began drinking alcohol. The business owners saw him on their surveillance system and alerted the police.
McIntyre was transported to the Lincoln County Jail and lodged on charges of Burglary II and Theft III.
