Police Beat: Sept. 18-24th

On Sept. 19, at 8:25 a.m., police responded to a home on NW 1st Avenue, to an man who had reported receiving a new iPhone that he hadn’t order. He said the new phone had been charged to his Verizon account without his knowledge or approval. I think that may qualify as felony theft. iPhones ain’t cheap.

Later that day, at 8:24 p.m., police received a report of a pet cat being shot. The cat later had to be put down because of its injuries.

At 11:37 pm, officers stopped a vehicle on NE Territorial Road after recognizing the driver as a man who had an outstanding warrant for his arrest. Officers notified the driver of the arrest warrant, and took physical control of him after the suspect resisted.

Items seized from the suspect’s vehicle included property connected to a residential burglary, financial documents that had been reported stolen, and a substance that later tested positive for heroin.

On Sept. 20, at 9:09 p.m., an officer detained two individuals on SE 1st Avenue, who admitted traveling to Canby for the purpose of stealing items from a local store. Both individuals were later cited and released.

On Sept. 21, at 9 pm, officers stopped a vehicle with a burned out headlamp on NE 37th Avenue. During the stop, officers determined the driver and passenger were both unlicensed and under the age of 16. Officers also located a nicotine inhalant system in their possession. A parent was called to the scene to retrieve both juveniles and the vehicle.

On Sept. 23, at 11:41 pm, officers received witness reports about suspicious activities associated with an unoccupied vehicle on Highway 99E. As officers approached, they noticed several individuals leave a laundromat and enter two separate vehicles.

Officers subsequently conducted traffic stops on both vehicles and made contact with the occupants. One of the passengers was taken into custody on an outstanding Clackamas County arrest warrant, and two other individuals were arrested for possession of controlled substances.

Although one of the passengers initially gave a fake nam, his identity was later confirmed after officers found recent jail release paperwork in the vehicle. Other items seized were hypodermic needles, suspected heroin, and methamphetamine. One vehicle, with an expired registration sticker on a switched license plate, was towed from the stop location.
