(KOIN) – An off-duty Clackamas County sheriff’s deputy helped arrest a man who was allegedly burglarizing a recently closed Estacada restaurant.

On Wednesday morning, the sheriff’s office reports, the off-duty deputy witnessed the suspect, 32-year-old Jonathan Ray Hogenson, leaving the former site of the Legendary Safari Club restaurant with a heavy brown suitcase. The suspect then biked away.

The Safari Club had recently closed, and the owners were in the process of vacating the building, the sheriff’s office said.

The off-duty deputy contacted dispatch, and responding deputies caught Hogenson. The suitcase was found on the back porch of his mother’s home. Investigators also found signs of a break-in at the club.

Hogenson was arrested on one count of second-degree burglary. He is lodged in the Clackamas County Jail.
