Burris has been arrested on two counts of Burglary II. He was booked at the Multnomah County booking facility. Detectives believe Burris is responsible for many more burglaries and are still investigating.
Detectives recovered stolen property, including appliances. Detectives believe a local business was involved in buying appliances stolen by Burris. That is still under investigation, but detectives say arrests are likely there too.
Detectives believe Burris is responsible for burglaries dating back to at least March, in which he preyed upon newly built homes, which sat vacant for sale or rent. In many cases all the new appliances including washers and dryers, stoves, ovens, and dishwashers were removed. While many of these burglaries took place in inner southeast Portland, there have been additional cases reported all over the city.
