Vandals ransack house in Sisters
Some time during the July 3 through July 7 period, vandals broke into and ransacked the white house on the eastern edge of Sisters, just beyond the FivePine campus. The house was the bunkhouse for the Lazy Z Ranch.
Owners Derek and Brenda Jaros told The Nugget that they were refurbishing the 1920s-era house and hope to place it on the historical registry.
Derek Jaros reported, "We got broken into by, apparently what seems to be kids who just ransacked the place."
The vandals did not steal anything of value, though there were tools on the site, Jaros reported. The perpetrators seemed intent on causing a great deal of damage. They kicked holes in walls and dented up appliances, broke windows and threw wood through them, broke knobs off a door, knocked thermostats off walls and left the place wrecked.
"Whatever they could destroy they destroyed," Jaros said.
Jaros also noted that the perpetrators left some evidence behind at the scene, which he hopes Deschutes County Sheriff's Office investigators can make use of.
The Jaros's were planning to show the property to a potential client "interested in a commercial endeavor there," but instead are meeting with contractors to get estimates for extensive repairs.
"It's just really disappointing," Jaros said.
Anyone with information on the incident is encouraged to contact the Sisters sheriff's substation at 541-549-1762 or Deschutes County non-Emergency Dispatch at 541-693-6911.
