Suspect Arrested, Stolen Vehicle Recovered, Gun Seized Saturday Afternoon in Portland's Kenton Neighborhood (Photo) - 08/19/18

On Saturday, August 18, 2018, at 4:59 p.m., North Precinct officers attempted to stop the driver of a white 1994 Acura Integra near the intersection of North Winchell Street and North Fenwick Avenue after observing the driver commit multiple traffic violations.

After the officers turned on the emergency lights and siren to their marked patrol vehicle, the driver of the vehicle sped away. Based on the officers' observations at the time the driver fled, the officers decided not to pursue the suspect. Additional officers were requested to assist in a search for the vehicle and suspect in the surrounding blocks. As officers searched the neighborhood they found the Acura stopped straddling a sidewalk in the 1700 block of North Farragut Avenue. Officers also observed the suspect running from the Acura. A description, direction of travel and location of the suspect was broadcast to responding officers.

Officers arrived in the area and positioned themselves throughout the neighborhood and a police canine responded to the area to assist with a search. As officers performed a police canine search, they located the suspect under a deck in the backyard of a residence in the 1500 block of North Farragut Avenue. The suspect was taken into custody without incident.

As officers continued the investigation, they located and seized a firearm in a yard in the 1700 block of North Farragut Avenue. Officers believe the suspect had left the gun in the yard as he ran from officers. During a records check of the gun, officers determined the gun had previously been reported as a stolen firearm.

During an inspection of the Acura, officers learned the vehicle had been reported stolen on July 28, 2018 in Sandy, Oregon.

Members of the Portland Police Bureau Tactical Operation Division's Gun Taskforce responded to assist with the firearm investigation and to collect additional forensic evidence.

The suspect was identified as 25-year-old Armando J. Perez. Perez was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Unlawful Use of a Motor Vehicle, Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle, Reckless Driving, Aggravated Theft in the First Degree, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Driving while Suspended - Misdemeanor, Possession of Methamphetamine, and a parole violation warrant for a previous conviction related to firing a weapon.

PPB and Multnomah County Health Department Warns Community about Counterfeit Prescription Drugs (Photo) - 08/17/18

The Portland Police Bureau's Drugs and Vice Division and the Multnomah County Health Department want to warn the community about counterfeit prescription drugs that are being illegally sold in the Portland area, around the state and online.

These illegal counterfeit drugs are marketed and sold as prescription drugs such as Xanax, Oxycodone, Alprazolam and others. Samples of the drugs seized by the police that were analyzed by the Oregon State Crime Lab showed that the counterfeit drugs often contain extremely potent substances that can and have caused overdose deaths. For example, officers have investigated counterfeit oxycodone tablet cases where the pills actually contained heroin, Fentanyl (Fentanyl Analogues), Tramadol, Alprazolam and other substances. In another case, purported Xanax pills contained the drug U-4700, a strong and deadly synthetic opioid. The imprints and markings on the counterfeit pills are made to resemble the actual prescription pills, and these imprints on the counterfeit pills constantly change, so there is no way to identify counterfeits just by the imprint markings.

Officials want to warn the public that fentanyl and other opioid analogs are extremely potent and have caused accidental overdose deaths in Portland and around the state. Fentanyl and other opioid analogs cross the blood-brain barrier faster than more commonly encountered opioids and can be 100 to 10,000 times more potent than morphine or heroin.

The public should not purchase medication from black market dealers or from unlicensed distributors, as these drugs are oftentimes counterfeit and contain deadly opioids or opioid analogs. All prescribed medication should be obtained from licensed professionals.

"Any pill not purchased from a pharmacy should be considered counterfeit," said Dr. Paul Lewis, Multnomah County Health Officer, "You will almost never be getting what you think you are buying, even if it looks legit. And that deception could kill you."

Local health officials identified more than 180 opioid overdose deaths in 2017 and the same pace continues in 2018. "In 2017, the number of deaths from the highly potent drugs like fentanyl tripled from 15 to 45," Lewis said. "And that trend is expected to continue."

Real-time monitoring of opioid overdoses in the Tri-County region Oregon Pain Guidance may be found at https://portlandprofessional.oregonpainguidance.org/ At this time emergency medical response services, hospital emergency departments and urgent care clinics are not reporting any increase in overdoses.

Multnomah County's syringe exchange offers clients overdose rescue kits, which include naloxone, a drug used to reverse the effects of an opiate overdose. Naloxone -- which anyone can buy at a pharmacy without a doctor's prescription -- can rapidly reverse a heroin or prescription opioid overdose, restoring normal breathing to a person whose breathing has slowed or stopped. To learn more about naloxone and overdose prevention visit:

* https://www.oregon.gov/oha/PH/PREVENTIONWELLNESS/SUBSTANCEUSE/OPIOIDS/Pages/naloxone.aspx

* https://multco.us/hiv-and-std-services/overdose-prevention

Community members concerned about illegal drug activity in their neighborhood should report the information on line at https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/30740 or call the Drugs and Vice Division Drug Complaint Hotline at 503-823-3784.

This year marks the 16-year anniversary of 'Shop with a Cop', where Portland Police Bureau officers, Multnomah County Sheriff's Office deputies, and up to 275 kids spend a morning together shopping for back-to-school clothing. Participating kids are identified by the Boys and Girls Club of Portland, Jewish Family & Child Services, Healthy Birth Initiative, and Multnomah County Youth and Family Services Division and are selected based on their financial need.

This organization and these officers care about giving these kids a positive experience and the tools they need to feel good and perform well in school," said Sunshine Division's Bureau Liaison, Officer Matt Tobey.

The Sunshine Division funds the "Shop with a Cop" event through its Izzy's Kids program. Izzy's Kids, which began in 1981 in honor of longtime board member Isabel Hoyt, provides funds so that Portland police officers can take children in need shopping for new school clothes. The Izzy's Kids program operates year-round and will pair an additional 300 kids with officers for a unique, one-on-one shopping experience throughout the remainder of the school year. The year-round Izzy's Kids program is generously funded by the Reser Family Foundation, Richard R. Burns Estate, and loyal private donors.

On Wednesday, August 8, 2018, at approximately 11:00 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to Portland City Hall, located at 1221 Southwest 4th Avenue, on the report that protesters had violated Portland City Council rules and refused to leave when directed to so by Portland City Hall security staff.

When officers arrived at Portland City Hall, they contacted security officers. The security officers informed the responding police officers that protesters on the third floor of City Hall were told to leave the premises, but refused to leave. The police officers arrived at the third floor of Portland City Hall and observed a group of protesters with two people lying on the ground. The protesters were informed by Portland City Hall security they were trespassed from the building and that if they refused to leave, they would be arrested. The protesters that were lying on the floor did not leave and they were taken into custody without incident.

Portland City Hall security officers also requested police officers respond to the main level of City Hall. City Hall security instructed protesters located inside Portland City Hall and near the east entrance of the building to exit the facility. As protesters were directed out of the building, two City Hall security officers were assaulted. One protester was seen throwing a glass jar to the ground as the group was directed out of Portland City Hall.

Neither of the security officers suffered injuries that required medical transport by ambulance. Officers were not able to take the suspect who reportedly assaulted City Hall security officers today. At this time, no arrests have been made in connection to the assault. Officers were also contacted and will write a report after a protester reported being "elbowed" by a security officer.

Both people arrested at City Hall this afternoon were lodged at the Multnomah County Jail. One of those arrested has been identified as 67-year-old Diane Keeauver. Keeauver was lodged on a charge of Trespass in the Second Degree.

On Monday, August 6, 2018, at 5:20 p.m., Central Precinct officers responded to the area near Northwest Broadway and Northwest Glisan Street on the report that a vehicle was carjacked and the suspect had driven over a pedestrian while driving the stolen vehicle.

As officers responded to the area of the carjacking and injured pedestrian, they learned the suspect had left the area in the stolen vehicle. The stolen vehicle was described as a teal Hyundai Santa Fe. Officers learned the suspect had brandished a knife as he forced his way into the Sant Fe which was occupied by multiple people at the time of the robbery.

Officers arrived in the area and located an injured adult male who was reportedly struck multiple times by the Santa Fe that was driven by the suspect of the carjacking. Emergency medical personnel arrived, provided the injured man emergency medical treatment and transported him to an area hospital by ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries. Additional officers searched the area for the stolen vehicle and suspect.

While officers searched for the suspect and the stolen vehicle, a caller to 9-1-1 reported a vehicle matching the carjacked vehicle's description had rolled over on southbound Interstate 5 near Southwest Capitol Highway. The caller to 9-1-1 reported the driver of the vehicle that rolled over on Interstate 5 exited the vehicle after the crash and forced his way into a silver Toyota Camry, that was on Interstate 5 and occupied an adult female driver. Officers responded to the area and began to search for the Toyota Camry. When officers arrived in the area of the roll-over crash they contacted the victim of the second carjacking. Officers did not locate anyone suffering from injuries as a result of the crash.

A Tigard Police Department Officer responded to assist with the search and located a vehicle near the crash location on Interstate 5 that matched the suspect vehicle. The officer attempted to stop the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle did not stop and fled from the officer. The officer pursued a Toyota Camry he believed to be driven by the carjacking suspect. When the suspect arrived in the area of Southwest 29th Avenue and Southwest Multnomah Street the suspect crashed into an occupied BMW sedan. Officers performed a box-in maneuver on the Camry and took the suspect into custody without incident. The driver of the BMW did not suffer injuries that required transportation by ambulance to an area hospital.

Based on information learned at this time, officers believe the suspect taken into custody near Southwest 29th Avenue and Southwest Multnomah Street was also the suspect in the carjacking and crash near Northwest Broadway and Northwest Glisan Street. Officers requested emergency medical personnel respond to assess the suspect after he was taken into custody based on officers' observations of the suspect's behavior. Emergency medical personnel arrived and transported the suspect to an area hospital for assessment.

The suspect's name and charges will be provided after he is released from the hospital and lodged at the Multnomah County Jail.

Members of the Portland Police Bureau Detective Division's Robbery Detail have responded to assist with this investigation. Anyone with information about these incidents are asked to contact the Robbery Detail at 503-823-0405.

On Saturday, August 4, 2018, at 11:51 a.m., North Precinct officers received several calls about an erratic driver with a minor child in the back seat. Officers received information that the vehicle was last seen parked in the street in the area of North Anchor Way and North Harbour Drive.

As officers were arriving to the area, they learned the male driver appeared to be passed out behind the wheel of a parked vehicle while a passerby was trying to get the child out of the vehicle.

When officers arrived at the scene and attempted to contact the subject, the male subject was woken and he sped off eastbound with the child in the back seat. Officers were concerned for the welfare of both the driver, child and the public. Officers initiated a vehicle pursuit.

Police units deployed spikes strips, a device used to impede or stop the movement of vehicles by puncturing their tires. As a result of a successful spike deployment, the suspect vehicle came to safe stop on Northeast Marine Drive east of Northeast 33rd Avenue.

Once the suspect vehicle stopped, officers observed the male driver jump out of the vehicle, run into the Columbia River. The suspect started swimming away from the shore, leaving a child unattended inside the vehicle. Officers immediately approached the abandoned vehicle and found a female child, who appeared to be about 5 years old, unharmed. Officers took the child into their custody and she was taken to North Precinct and reunited with her mother.

Portland Fire & Rescue Boat 17 was rescued to assist in taking the suspect into custody. Rescue Boat 17 arrived and the suspect was rescued from the water and taken into custody without incident. The suspect was transported to an area hospital by ambulance after he told officers he had taken an unspecified substance.

The suspect will be identified after he is released from a Portland area hospital and lodged at the Multnomah County Jail.

UPDATE #2: Four People Arrested During Saturday Protest (Photo) - 08/04/18

On Saturday, August 4, 2018, four people were arrested during a demonstration, counter-demonstration and an unpermitted march held in Downtown Portland. The protest events and march were held in Tom McCall Waterfront and roadways in the downtown area over the course of approximately eight hours.

The intent of law enforcement today was to provide a safe environment for all participants, non-participants, and community members while ensuring the peaceful exercise of the First Amendment.

Officers located and seized multiple weapons throughout the day. The groups involved in the protests escalated in behavior and threw projectiles, including rocks, smoke bombs, firework mortars, unknown chemical agents, bottles, items from a slingshot, and other projectiles at officers and protesters.

When officers arrived in the area of Southwest Naito Parkway and Southwest Columbia Boulevard, they learned multiple police vehicles, possibly with officers inside the vehicles, were trapped in a group of protesters who were throwing an unknown chemical agent as well as other projectiles at officers. Officers provided directions to the protesters using the sound truck, as well as deployed riot control agents and less lethal impact weapons. The officers located three damaged police vehicles after the crowd moved from the vehicles. There were no officers inside the vehicles.

At this time, the Police Bureau is aware that the following riot control agents and less lethal impact munitions were used in response to the violent and assaultive behavior of the crowd and after the crowd failed to disperse in response to police orders:

* Aerial Distraction Device http://www.defense-technology.com/products/tactical-devices/warning-signaling-munitions/40-mm-warning-signaling-munition-50-meter-1191152.html#start=8

"The Portland Police Bureau is, and will always be, committed to providing a safe environment for all individuals to exercise their First Amendments rights in a peaceful manner," said Chief Danielle Outlaw. "Unfortunately, today, some people chose to commit illegal acts of violence, which required members of the Police Bureau to take action in order to keep all participants and non-participants safe. This was a dangerous situation for all those involved, including officers, and I am disheartened that this kind of illegal behavior occurred in our beautiful city."

Throughout the afternoon, the Portland Police Bureau provided information to protesters through announcements on two sound trucks equipped with long-range acoustic speakers. The purpose of the sound truck announcements is to increase community safety by communicating police expectations and reminding people to peaceably protest. Sound trucks are also used to warn community members of potential force deployment by law enforcement as a means to give individuals an opportunity to avoid force by complying with officer orders.

The Portland Police Bureau also provided information and updates on Twitter, including photos of the many weapons and items seized throughout the day and announcements provided by the sound trucks: https://twitter.com/PortlandPolice

As the protest continued and based on the crowd sizes and demeanor, the Police Bureau requested assistance from partnering police agencies to help manage the escalating tumultuous behavior. At one point, nearly all available on-duty Portland Police Bureau resources were devoted to addressing the demonstration and counter-demonstration. Members of the Oregon State Police were also requested to respond to Downtown Portland to assist with this incident.

Surrounding law enforcement agencies were requested to assist with calls for service in the City of Portland. For a portion of the late morning and into the evening hours of Saturday, law enforcement only responded to emergency calls for service because of limited availability of officers and deputies; officers did not respond to non-emergency calls for service during this time.

###PPB###



The Police Bureau continues to prepare for today's demonstration and counter-demonstration in and around the area of Tom McCall Waterfront Park. The Police Bureau's goal is to help facilitate peaceful events and prevent criminal behavior from occurring. The safety of participants and community members is the Police Bureau's top priority.

In an attempt to create a safe environment for people to practice their First Amendment Rights to speech and assembly, the Police Bureau has requested a fence be erected along the north, west and south sides of Tom McCall Waterfront Park between Southwest Salmon Street and Southwest Morrison Street. There will be multiple entrance points with security screening locations at each entrance. The multipurpose path along the seawall will remain open and the Police Bureau does not plan to block the path with fencing at this time. Both crosswalks over Southwest Naito Avenue at Southwest Taylor Street will be closed while the fences are in place. A map of Tom McCall Waterfront Park, the fencing and other information is provided with this release.

The Police Bureau reminds the public that prohibited items may be temporarily or permanently seized by police, if in violation of city, state or federal law. Persons whose property is seized temporarily or permanently will receive a property receipt from an officer, as conditions allow. Items that are seized temporarily on Saturday will not be available to be retrieved by the property owner on the day of the event. The seized property must be collected from the Portland Police Bureau's Property Evidence Division during their regular business hours. The Portland Police Bureau's Directive, 0660.10 Property and Evidence Procedures can be found at: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/529180

Due to information learned in preparation for today's demonstration and counterdemonstration that suggests the possibility for violence, and pursuant to Portland City Code (PCC) 14C.30.010, no person will be allowed to enter Tom McCall Waterfront Park while carrying a rifle, shotgun, other style of long-gun firearm, or any visibly displayed firearm. This exclusion applies to all people, including those with a valid Oregon concealed handgun license.

Everyone attending the demonstration and counterdemonstration are encouraged to obey all laws and be respectful of others who are using city streets, freeways and mass transit. Marching into and blocking streets without a permit is illegal and dangerous to protesters as well as road users and has a significantly negative impact to our community.

Anyone near the demonstration, counter-demonstration or other events in Downtown Portland and Tom McCall Waterfront Park are encouraged to be aware of their surroundings. Persons that observe any object or behavior that is believed to be suspicious, destructive, or criminal in nature should contact 9-1-1 or a police officer immediately -- "If you see something, say something."

Suspect Arrested After Threatening to Shoot People in Portland's Centennial Neighborhood (Photo) - 08/02/18

On Wednesday, August 1, 2018, at 8:36 p.m., East Precinct and Gresham Police Department Officers responded to the report that a suspect had threatened to use a firearm to harm people inside a residence in the 1900 block of Southeast 174th Avenue.

As officers responded to the 9-1-1 call Wednesday evening, they established a perimeter around the residence and neighborhood while directing people inside the home to exit, if they could do so safely. As the people inside the home evacuated from the location, a man matching the suspect's description ran from the residence.

Officers that were positioned on the perimeter were provided the suspect's updated locations by members of the Police Bureau Tactical Operation Division's Air Support Unit (ASU), who were flying overhead. The suspect was seen running through a field and jumping over several fences before officers took him into custody without incident.

Based on information gathered during the investigation, officers believe the suspect knew the occupants of the residence from which he fled.

Officers had responded to the same location at 1:26 p.m. on Wednesday, on the report that the suspect had threatened to shoot family members living in the residence. The suspect left the location prior to officers arriving and officers were not able to locate the suspect when they arrived at the call earlier on Wednesday.

There were no reported injuries as a result of this incident.

Members of the Portland Police Bureau Tactical Operation Division's Gun Taskforce (GTF) responded to assist with this investigation. Investigators with the Gun Taskforce applied for and obtained a warrant to search a vehicle associated with the suspect. The vehicle associated with the suspect was parked outside the residence officers responded to on Wednesday. During the search of the vehicle, officers located a handgun (A photograph of the firearm is provided with this press release.).

The suspect has been identified as 29-year-old Davon Granville. Granville was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on a United States Marshals' Hold and a warrant for Felon in Possession of a Firearm. Additional charges are expected as the investigation continues.

Suspect Arrested for May 29th Shooting at 82nd Ave Transit Station (Photo) - 08/02/18

On Wednesday, August 1, 2018, at 5:44 p.m., members of the Portland Police Bureau Tactical Operation Division's Gang Enforcement Team, Gun Taskforce, and Canine Division arrested 60-year-old Michael G. Adams in connection with a shooting investigation that injured one man on May 29, 2018.

This investigation began on Tuesday, May 29th, at 3:29 p.m., when East Precinct officers responded to the 82nd Avenue Transit Station, located at 1515 Northeast 82nd Avenue, on the report of a shooting.

Officers arrived in the area and located an adult male victim suffering from what was believed to be serious but non-life-threatening gunshot injury. Officers applied a tourniquet to the victim prior to emergency medical personnel arriving on scene. When emergency medical responders arrived, they provided the man medical aid and transported him to an area hospital by ambulance for treatment of what was believed to be a serious but non-life-threatening injury.

On the day of the shooting, officers searched the area for the suspect but did not locate the suspect at that time.

During the investigation, officers learned the suspect approached the victim, shot the victim and walked away from the 82nd Avenue Transit Station. Based on information learned during the investigation, officers believed Adams was the suspect in this shooting.

On Wednesday, August 1, 2018, officers performed a traffic stop on a vehicle believed to be driven by Adams. During the traffic stop, Adams was taken into custody with incident. As officers search Adams, after his arrest, they located a firearm on Adams' body. The firearm was seized as evidence (A photograph of the firearm is provided with this release).

Adams was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Assault in the First Degree, Assault in the Second Degree, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and a warrant for Possession of Cocaine.

Statement from Chief Outlaw Regarding PPB's Response to Occupy ICE PDX Related Calls - 08/01/18

The Portland Police Bureau is, and will always be, committed to providing the highest level of public safety response to all community members.

Members of the PPB Operations Branch were directed by me to respond to all 911 calls around the Occupy ICE protest. Sergeants were directed to be the primary responder for an initial assessment of these calls (when feasible) to identify resources needed, given the geographic complexities of the location and the challenge of getting additional officers to the scene in a timely manner. Some responses were handled by phone or off-site and away from the protest.

Life and safety calls were of the utmost priority during this protest, as they were (and continue to be) anywhere else in the city. We also informed the Federal Protective Service that we would respond to their emergency calls for service if their safety was at risk.

During the 6-week protest, PPB responded to 41 calls for service and officers self-dispatched themselves to 18 calls. There were 16 police reports written regarding the Occupy ICE Camp and no arrests were made. There were no significant injuries to anyone around this camp. The cleanup was completed in a peaceful and effective manner. We will continue to review relative reports and calls for service to identify any actions that did not meet the expectations outlined.

Officers and their supervisors use discretion every day to ensure that we use our resources in the most effective and appropriate manner, and they did so during this protest. I am proud of the professional response to calls for service during an already tense situation, as well as the thoughtfulness that went into using our resources given our current staffing levels, while also engaging with the many property owners and businesses involved.

UPDATE: Clean-Up Continues at Occupy ICE Camp -- No Arrests - 07/25/18

Today, Wednesday, July 25, 2018, starting at approximately 4:15 a.m., the Portland Police Bureau cleared the Occupy ICE encampment near Southwest Macadam Avenue and Southwest Bancroft Street. 
 
There were no arrests or citations issued as officers cleared the camp.   Additionally, there were no reports of injury as a result of the camp clearing.  An officer reported using baton pushes as officers instructed demonstrators to move from the area.  This use of force will be reviewed as outlined in Portland Police Bureau Directive 1010.00 Use of Force (https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/647779 ).   No pepper spray or less lethal munitions were used during this operation.
 
This morning, the majority of the occupants of the Occupy ICE camp had already left.  Based on this information, observations that the camp was no longer sustainable, and that contract clean-up workers were ready to begin cleaning the area, the Portland Police Bureau moved forward in a methodical and thoughtful manner to clear the remaining people from the campsite.
 
Announcements were posted on Monday, July 23, 2018, informing people at the Occupy ICE camp that the camp must be vacated.  Today, officers informed people in the camp in person and over a loud speaker that they needed to leave the area or they could be cited or arrested.  Officers moved through the camp slowly ensuring that all people had left the encampment.
 
"Last week PPB determined conditions at the Occupy ICE camp posed livability and safety concerns for the community and people staying in the camp," said Chief Danielle Outlaw.  "I expressed this concern with the Mayor and he was in full support of moving forward to clear the camp. I am pleased that through collaboration and clear communication with the community, as well as the intentional and methodical processes employed by the Police Bureau, there were no arrests, citations, or injuries as a result of clearing the camp. I appreciate the community's patience as the clean-up process continues at the Occupy ICE camp"

Presently, the three companies contracted by the various property owners in the area of the Occupy ICE camp are removing debris.  Any items of obvious utility and value that are left behind will be stored and available for pick-up until September 1, 2018. Anyone seeking to reclaim their property should contact Pacific Patrol Services at 503-595-3440.
 
Officers are continuing to maintain a safety perimeter around the Occupy ICE camp to allow the safe cleanup to continue.
 
Officers and contracted clean-up crews expect traffic to be impacted on roadways near the clean-up site until late this afternoon.  At this time the following road closures are in place:
·         Southwest Bancroft Street is closed between Southwest Macadam Avenue and Southwest Bond Avenue;
·         Southwest Moody Avenue is closed between Southwest Bancroft Street and Southwest Lowell Street
The Police Bureau recognizes that members of the community traveling in Portland's South Waterfront need to access medical care, their workplaces, and homes.  The Police Bureau will attempt to accommodate the needs of those traveling in the area.  Currently a traffic pattern has been established on Southwest Bond Avenue near Southwest Bancroft Street to allow for two-way traffic.  Motorists should use extreme caution as they travel through the area.  Anyone requiring assistance as they travel in the South Waterfront should contact an officer in the area for assistance.
 
Approximately 45 Portland Police Bureau members assisted with the clearing of the Occupy ICE camp today.

Today, Wednesday, July 25, 2018, the Portland Police Bureau is assisting in the cleanup process at the Occupy ICE Camp located near Southwest Macadam Avenue and Southwest Bancroft Street.
 
On Monday, July 23, 2018, at 6:00 p.m., City of Portland contractors posted Notice of Intent to Clear Unlawful Campsite signage through the encampment.  The notices provided people at the Occupy ICE Camp notification that on or after Tuesday, July 24, 2018, all belongings and people camping at the location should move elsewhere. Since the posting, the majority of the occupants have moved out and taken their belongings.  

During this camp clean-up, the Police Bureau plans to move in a methodical and thoughtful manner.  Anyone refusing to leave the campsite may be subject to citation or arrest for charges including, but not limited to, Criminal Trespass (ORS 164.245), Camping Prohibited on Public Property and Public Right of Way (PCC 14A.50.020), and Erecting Permanent or Temporary Structures on Public Property or Public Rights of Way (PCC 14A.50.050).

Detectives work to determine whether or not bias elements are present during the reported crime that align with Oregon law as defined in the Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS):

* ORS 166.165 - Intimidation in the First Degree - https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/166.165
* ORS 166.155 -- Intimidation in the Second Degree - https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/166.155

If you have been the victim of a bias crime assault or you are witnessing one, immediately call 9-1-1. If you have been the victim of a different bias crime and the suspect is no longer present, such as vandalism or graffiti, please call the non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.

Major Crash Team Investigation Underway on NE Columbia Blvd - One Person Seriously Injured - 07/22/18

On Saturday, July 21, 2018, at 9:55 p.m., North Precinct and Traffic Division officers responded to the report of a two vehicle crash in the 1000 block of Northeast Columbia Boulevard.

Officers and emergency medical personnel arrived on scene and located a black Mini Cooper and a grey Mercedes 350 sedan that appeared to have been involved in a crash. The driver and sole occupant of the Mini Cooper, an adult female, was believed to be suffering from life threatening injuries and was provided emergency medical aid and transported to a Portland hospital by ambulance. The adult male and female occupants of the Mercedes suffered what were believed to be serious but non-life-threatening injuries and were also transported to a Portland hospital by ambulance for treatment of their injuries.

Based on preliminary information, officers believe the driver of the Mini Cooper traveled westbound on Northeast Columbia Boulevard at a high rate speed with no headlights activated. Investigating officers believe the driver of the Mercedes had pulled onto westbound Northeast Columbia Boulevard from a driveway at the Oregon Humane Society, located at 1067 Northeast Columbia Boulevard prior to the crash. The Mini Cooper collided with the rear of the Mercedes after it was being driven on Northeast Columbia Boulevard.

The Portland Police Bureau Traffic Division's Major Crash Team is responding and will continue the investigation. Criminalists with the Forensic Evidence Division are also responding to assist with this investigation.

During this crash investigation Northeast Columbia Boulevard will be closed to vehicle traffic between Northeast 11th Avenue and Northeast 17th Avenue.

Officers Respond to Safety Hazard Saturday Morning on Springwater Corridor Trail - 07/21/18

On Saturday, July 21, 2018, at 9:21 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to the report of a hazard on the Springwater Corridor Trail at milepost 6.5.

Based on information provided by the caller to the Bureau of Emergency Communications (BOEC), the officers responded to an area on the Springwater Corridor Trail approximately one-half mile east of Southeast 45th Avenue and Southeast Johnson Creek Boulevard. When the officers arrived at the described location they found a large and heavy chain spanning the width of the trail. The chain was attached to two fences on opposite sides of the trail. The original caller to BOEC reported the chain was a safety hazard to anyone using the trail.

When officers arrived the chain was laying on the pathway. Officers believe a concerned community member likely abated the hazard by forcing the chain to the ground prior to their arrival. Officers believe the chain would have been at chest level prior to being forced to the pathway. Officers removed and seized the chain as evidence.

There were no reported injuries as a result of this hazard.

Anyone using the Springwater Trail in this area should use caution and report any hazardous conditions to Portland Park Rangers at 503-823-1637 or the Portland Police Bureau at 503-823-3333 or 9-1-1 if there is a condition that constitutes an immediate life-safety hazard.

The Police Bureau continues to investigate this incident and ask anyone with information to contact the Portland Police Bureau at 503-823-3333 and reference case number 18-245375.
