OCEAN PARK — Thanks to clever use of technology and a tip from a citizen, sheriff’s deputies on Nov. 23 arrested Terrence James Eager, who is suspected of burgarizing an Ocean Park home.

On the evening of Nov. 22, 911 dispatchers received a report of a burglary-in-progress at a home in the 1800 block of 227th street, according to a Pacific County Sheriff’s Office press release. The caller, who lived in Oregon, said he had surveillance cameras set up at the Ocean Park property that were programmed to alert him of disturbances. The caller said he was watching remotely, as an intruder moved around the fenced-in property, trying doorknobs and entering a shed. He was even able to provide a description of the alleged intruder, according to the press release.
