Police Beat: April 16-29

Police Beat for the week of April 16 through the 29th. That’s right: It’s another double serving for ya.

On April 16 at 10 a.m., report of money being stolen from the claw machines at the entry of the Canby Fred Meyer. Gasp! Cheaters!

On April 17 at 5:04 am, police woke a sleeping man in front of a store at NE Second Ave. The officers notified him he was trespassed from the location, and warned him that he would be arrested if he returned.

Later that day, several reports of overnight thefts from parked vehicles on Ninth, 11th and 12th avenues and South Redwood Street. Some of the items were recovered from a nearby location.

On April 19, at 6:12 pm, police discovered that a woman involved in a vehicle crash on SE First Avenue the previous day had “accidentally” given them an incorrect number! Suuuure. Heard that one before. Officers located and were able to obtain correct contact information to share with the other driver involved.

On April 20, at 1:47 am,a driver was stopped on suspicion of drunken driving. The driver stated she thought she was safe to drive since she was only going a few blocks. Then, she threw up. Several times, according to the report. Paramedics were called to evaluate her,and did confirm she wasn’t sick. Just really drunk. She was arrested for DUII and transported to the Clackamas County Jail.

On April 23, officers located several transients who were camped out underneath the bridge on Highway 99E. They were advised that they were trespassing and needed to dismantle their camps and move along.

That night, at 11:16 p.m., police conducted a traffic stop on Highway 99E. The driver was unlicensed and uninsured, but that’s just the beginning. He was also found to be in possession of heroin, methamphetamine, loaded and uncapped needles, and numerous credit and gift cards that did not belong to him. Wonder if he might be our mysterious gift card bandit we’ve been hearing so much about?

On April 26 at 11:27 pm, report of three subjects actively trespassing on top of parked Union Pacific railcars on SE First Avenue. Two individuals, both appearing to be under the influence of intoxicants, were arrested for criminal trespass and taken to jail.

On April 27 at 8:47 am, report of a loose dog attacking two cats on SE Township Road. If you ask me, the cats probably started it. An officer located and captured the dog, and transported it to animal control.

Finally, on April 29 at 4:14 am, a transient was cited after officers found him camping under the Highway 99E bridge, a location where he had previously been warned that he would be charged with criminal trespass if he returned.
