Florence Police investigate May 24 burglary and make arrests

June 12, 2021 — On May 24, the Florence Police Department received a report of a storage unit broken into at 101 Mini Storage. 

Evidence at the scene identified two suspects and a vehicle. It was determined that those two suspects had broken into 3 storage units. Among some of the property stolen included several firearms and ammunition. 

On June 10, officers located the vehicle used, which belonged to a family member of one of the suspects, seized the vehicle and were given permission by the owner to search the vehicle. Some evidence believed to be associated to the storage unit burglary was located in the vehicle. 

Officers received information that the two suspects, Bradley James Robbins and Camille Renee Childers, were possibly staying at the Quality Inn at 2475 Highway 101 in Florence. Officers discovered that Childers was listed as a renter of a room at the Quality Inn. 

From outside the motel, officers were able to observe Robbins in the room. Robbins has several warrants out for his arrest from Lane County Circuit Court and from the Florence Municipal Court. 

Officers attempted to gain entry to the motel room, but the door was being secured from the inside and the occupants would not respond to the officers. Florence officers, assisted by the Lane County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO), secured the area and evacuated other motel guests from the effected floor. Officers kept observation of the room, requested the LCSO Special Response Team (SRT) to respond, and continually tried to make contact with the occupants of the room. 

After approximately 1.5 hours, officers were able to make phone contact with one of the suspects in the room and were able to convince the suspects to exit the room. 

Childers and Robbins were taken into custody without incident. SRT, which was activated and en route, was called off. 

Childers and Robbins were lodged in the Florence City Jail and will be transported to the Lane County Jail. 

Robbins, born Jan. 30, 1990, of Florence, was arrested for Burglary 1, Theft 1, Criminal Trespass, Criminal Mischief and Felon in Possession of a Firearm. Robbins was also taken into custody on warrants, which included for Burglary 1, UUV and Theft 1 out of Lane County Circuit Court and Violation of Probation x2 out of Florence Municipal Court.
