Antone Owens Accused Of Breaking Into Oregon Houses To Watch Pornography In Secrecy

Police in Oregon say that a man broke into his neighbors' homes so he could watch pornography with a little added adrenaline rush.

Antone Owens, of Eugene, allegedly busted into three houses between September of 2011 and April, 2012, The Register-Guard reports.

Owens told the cops that he is addicted to pornography.

“He knows he has a problem,” Eugene police Sgt. Mitch Martin told the Register-Guard. “Our hope is that he gets the help he needs so that he can be functioning member of society.”

In one of the alleged break-ins, a residents' son reportedly awoke to find someone in his bedroom, according to KMTR.

The station also reports that Owens told police he does have a computer with Internet at his house, but he prefers the excitement of viewing porn at other people's homes.

Police collared Owens last week after his voluntarily provided DNA sample matched "material" found at the crime scenes, CNET reports.
