Police Beat: June 4-10

Police Beat for the week of June 4th through the 10th.

On June 4th, at 11:51 p.m., officers made contact with two people sleeping in what the police report describes as a “broke-down vehicle” on South Ivy Street. The passenger was transported to a relative’s nearby home. The driver was directed to clean up trash he left outside the vehicle and warned to move before morning, or he would be towed. Officers also seized hypodermic needles from the scene, along with substances that later tested positive for methamphetamine and heroin.

On June 5 at 9:06 pm, a suspended driver was stopped on SW 1st Avenue and arrested for possession of methamphetamine. Two of the vehicle’s passengers were also arrested on outstanding Washington and Clackamas County warrants, and for possession of methamphetamine and heroin.

On June 6 at 2:56 pm, an uninsured vehicle was stopped on Highway 99E. The driver advised police that he was transporting his passenger to court, which is a noble gesture, but since he had a suspended license himself, they weren’t overly impressed. The passenger was arrested for possession of heroin and methamphetamine, and on a Marion County detainer.

Later that day, at 4:56 pm, police responded to an injury crash on SE First Avenue, after a vehicle rear-ended a second vehicle, forcing it into a crosswalk and hitting a cyclist.

On June 9, at 12:14 pm, police received a report of gasoline being stolen from a station on SW 1st Avenue.

Finally, on June 10, at 4:30 pm, a transient was trespassed from private property on SW 1st Avenue. The man was advised that he would be arrested if returned to that location.
