Jacksonville law firm upset with police after break-in


JACKSONVILLE, Ore.– A Jacksonville law office was robbed this week.

But the most frustrating thing for the family business was what happened once the police arrived.

Early Wednesday morning, the alarm went off at Reed’s law office on North Fifth Street.

The company says the sheriff’s deputy didn’t arrive for over half an hour.

Then, after the officer looked around and saw nothing obvious missing, the company said the deputy left the owner a voicemail saying he had emptied the building and was was gone.

The company says that because the deputy didn’t secure the building, their security system shows the burglar was in for 3 hours.

Statues and works of art were stolen.

Conagher Reed, a paralegal with the company, said: ‘It’s just a little disappointing to know that the one time here in Jacksonville where we really needed the police to support us, the response time was really bad. and the procedure just wasn’t up to par.

Reed says they called the answering deputy a few times afterward, but got no response.

He says the firm’s attorneys plan to draft a letter to the sheriff’s office about their experience.

We’ve reached out to JCSO for comment, a spokesperson tells us they need to gather more information.
