Ashland man arrested in multiple car break in cases

Ashland, Ore. — An Ashland man is behind bars tonight, facing charges in five separate cases relating to car break in’s. Ashland police say the man is also linked to a home burglary, and say there may be even more cases he’s involved in.

Officials say Michael Cohen broke into at least five cars, all in his neighborhood on the 2000 block of Siskiyou boulevard in Ashland. Police say that Cohen is facing numerous charges in the cases, including burglary, theft, and unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle.

On November 18th, a citizen called 911 after spotting Cohen looking into a pickup truck near his house. After responding to the area, police found him, and began investigating.

“Community involvement in the city of Ashland is fantastic, and that community involvement proved huge dividends in this investigation,” Deputy Chief Warren Hensman said.

Police severed a search warrant at his house on Monday, and say they found a number of items linking him to other car break in’s.  Ashland police say if your car was recently broken into, and you didn’t report it, you should. They say it’s important to document the crime, even weeks after it happened.
