Detectives Recover Nearly $50,000 Worth of Stolen Trading Cards and Jewelry (Photo) - 07/08/24

Beaverton, OR- Yesterday afternoon (July 7) the victim in this case, who was traveling on a MAX train from Portland International Airport to Hillsboro, accidentally dropped his backpack as he got off the train at the Beaverton Transit Center. Surveillance video later showed a woman, identified as 34-year-old Dawn Castro of Beaverton, retrieving the fallen backpack withing seconds of it being dropped. Instead of making any attempt to locate the owner of the backpack, or turn it into authorities, Castro kept the backpack and its contents.

Inside the backpack were rare sports trading cards, including those of Mickey Mantle, Joe Montana, Michael Jordan, and Kobe Bryant, as well as valuable jewelry. Dawn Castro proceeded to pawn some of the jewelry at a local pawn shop but kept the more valuable items, including the Mickey Mantle card, which was valued at close to $5,000.00.

The victim reported the theft to the Beaverton Police Department, and detectives promptly took on the case. After finding the stolen memorabilia on Facebook marketplace, the victim and Beaverton Police Detectives arranged a meeting with Dawn Castro to purchase the stolen trading cards.

At approximately 12:08 PM today, July 8, 2024, Beaverton Police Detectives successfully met and arrested Castro at the Beaverton Transit Center, the site of the original theft. In Castro’s possession were all the stolen trading cards the victim had lost the day before. Detectives were also able to locate the stolen jewelry at the local pawn shop and have arranged for it to be returned to the victim.  

Given the significant value of the stolen property in this case, Castro is being charged with Aggravated Theft in the 1st Degree.

Wanted Suspect Captured with the Help of Law Enforcement Drone - 06/24/24

Beaverton, Oregon – On Sunday, June 23, 2024, BPD officers stopped 32-year-old Dean Allen Bromley of The Dalles, Oregon for a traffic violation near the Elmonica Max station in north Beaverton. Bromley initially identified himself as Leroy Miller born in 1999. Bromley, who identified himself as Miller, was not able to tell officers how old he was, saying he was 22 or 23 years old. When officers moved to detain Bromley for providing false information to a police officer, he fled on foot. 

Beaverton Police Department officers set up a perimeter to contain Bromley and radioed for a drone to respond. Washington County Deputies from the Remote Operated Vehicle Team responded. 

The Remote Operated Vehicle Team, otherwise known as ROVT, is an interagency team comprised of law enforcement officers and deputies from the Hillsboro Police Department, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and the Beaverton Police Department.

Currently, the team has 12 members who are trained to operate the 25 drones and an avatar robot assigned to the team. The avatar robot is a tracked vehicle used for building searches and is equipped with a camera and a two-way communication device. 

Within minutes of the ROVT drone deployment, the licensed pilot, a Washington County Sheriff’s Deputy, located Dean Bromley hiding in heavy brush. Using the drone’s camera, the Washington County ROVT operator was able to vector in Beaverton Police Officers and Washington County Deputies to Bromley’s location. 

Bromley was taken into custody and correctly identified, not as Leroy Miller, but Dean Bromley. Bromley was lodged at the Washington County Jail on a felony warrant out of the State of Washington’s Department of Corrections for Escape.
