The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office arrested two suspects after deputies interrupted a burglary at the Clackamas County Bank in Boring.

At 8:11 a.m. on Monday, May 29, 2017, Sheriff's Office deputies responded to an alarm call at the Clackamas County Bank, located at 28500 SE Hwy. 212 in Boring, unincorporated Clackamas County.

Upon arrival, deputies found a male sitting in a car parked in front of the bank.

As deputies approached, they could hear what sounded like a saw coming from inside the bank.

The male in the car reported started honking the car's horn when he saw deputies approaching.

Deputies could also see that someone had a glass door was broken -- suggesting a possible forced entry into the bank.

As deputies were detaining the male who was in the car, a second male ran out of the bank's broken glass door. He was wearing a mask covering his face.

As the second suspect fled, deputies ordered him to stop. He complied.

Both males were taken into custody without further incident.

Deputies used a robot to search the building for any additional suspects. After finding no one else inside, they investigated the scene.

The suspects had done a substantial amount of damage to the back of the bank's ATM machine, but were not successful in extracting any money. Deputies also located the suspects' tools, including a reciprocating saw and demolition hammer.

The bank reported that repairs to the ATM will cost several thousands of dollars.

Deputies arrested Robert Leslie Eichler, 43, and Chad Christian Harwood, 50, of Portland and booked them into the Clackamas County Jail on charges of Burglary.
