Porn-watching burglar hits several homes, left behind lubricant and towels.

A man who police allege broke into Eugene homes to look at pornography on the homeowners’ computers has been arrested.

In some cases, lubricant and towels were found next to the computer after 21-year-old Antone Owens burglarized the homes, according to the Eugene Police Department.

The investigation started when burglary victims who lived near Owens shared information about strange break-ins and computer breaches.

In the fall of 2011, a homeowner on Polk Street in Eugene reported an intruder had entered the home and surfed pornographic websites multiple times. In one incident, the homeowner’s son woke up to find the intruder in his bedroom, officers said.

In a case from March, a female resident said she returned home and found porn on her computer monitor. She also found lubricant, towels and a cell phone nearby, police said.

When she picked up the cell phone, she saw Owens outside her home’s sliding glass door, police said. As she called 911, Owens shouted at her and threatened to break the door, according to police.

He then pulled on the lock, entered the home and threatened to kill her, police said. Owens grabbed the lubricant and the phone before running out the back door.

In a separate case, a man returned home and found Owens inside, police said. When he called 911, Owens ran out of the home, leaving pornography on the monitor and towels next to the computer.

Owens is charged with burglary, menacing and coercion as a result of the police investigation.
