Police Beat: Oct. 9-15th

Police Beat for the week of Oct. 9 through the 15th:

On Oct. 10, at 6:06 p.m. officers witnessed two individuals trespassing on a property on Knights Bridge Road and stealing fruit from a tree. One of the fruit bandits was found to have outstanding warrants for their arrest and was taken into custody.

On Oct. 11, at 2:30 p.m., a landlord reported his rental home had been posted for rent on Craigslist, without his knowledge or consent. I might have tried contacting Craigslist before I called the police, but, you know, to each their own.

At 7:29 that night, police witnessed a vehicle abruptly pull off the road near Molalla River Bridge and flash hazard lights. When officers stopped to assist, the department’s K9 alerted them to the presence of drugs inside the vehicle. A search yielded user quantities of methamphetamine, heroin and drug paraphernalia inside a purse in the vehicle.

On Oct. 12, at 5 p.m., a man reported receiving a new iPhone in the mail, that he did not order, with his name on the receipt. This is the second report we’ve gotten like this. Guys, who is sending people free iPhones? And can I please get one? Anyway…

On Oct. 14, at 5:13 p.m., a traffic stop was conducted on Highway 99E, on a vehicle traveling well under the posted limit, with expired tags. During the stop, officers learned the driver and her passenger had suspended licenses. After finding illegal drugs in multiple locations within the vehicle, both the driver and passenger were arrested for possession of methamphetamine.

Finally, on Oct. 15, 5:02 pm, officers made contact with a man who parked under a “no parking” sign on SW 2nd Ave. That wasn’t his worst crime, though, believe it or not. Officers found the plates on the vehicle had been reported stolen, and located a substance in the vehicle that later tested positive for methamphetamine. The man was taken into custody for theft and possession of a controlled substance.
