Update: Man Arrested After Returning to Haul Away Second Half of Dumped Mobile Home (Photo) - 09/18/18

Deputies serving the City of Cornelius have continued to investigate the circumstances surrounding the dumping of half a dilapidated mobile home in the parking lot of Echo Shaw Elementary School on Saturday.

Deputies received dozens of tips from the public regarding a Craigslist advertisement posted on September 13 from an individual in Yamhill offering to pay $1,000 to have a mobile home hauled away from his property. Deputies also received information about numerous public sightings of a white truck towing the mobile home northbound on Highway 47 between Yamhill and Cornelius.

When deputies contacted the seller, they learned a man had responded to the ad and hauled away half of the mobile home. That half was later found dumped at the school. He told the seller he would return and haul away the second half at a later time. He also told the seller he planned to convert the mobile home into small housing units in Portland.

On Monday evening, at about 11:30 p.m., the seller contacted deputies to report the suspect was returning to his property to haul away the second half of the mobile home. Deputies responded to the seller’s address outside of Yamhill and arrested him.

The suspect, 35-year-old Derek Conley of Portland, was arrested for second-degree criminal mischief, offensive littering, and an outstanding probation violation warrant for felon in possession of a firearm. He is currently being lodged at the Washington County Jail.

The dumped mobile home was initially towed from the school and stored on City of Cornelius City Works property. It was transported back to the original seller yesterday.

The Sheriff’s Office wishes to thank the media and public for their assistance.

Inmate Found Deceased After Medical Emergency - 09/17/18

On Sunday, September 16, 2018, at 9:27 p.m., a Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputy found an inmate unresponsive in his cell at the Washington County Jail.

The deputy radioed for medical backup and immediately performed lifesaving measures. Jail medical personnel responded and continued lifesaving efforts, to include utilizing an automated external defibrillator (AED). The Hillsboro Fire Department also responded and later pronounced the individual deceased.

This morning, the Oregon Medical Examiner's Office conducted an autopsy and determined the individual died of natural causes. Consistent with Sheriff’s Office protocol, detectives are conducting a thorough investigation.

Deputies Asking For Public's Help in Locating Stolen Dog (Photo) - 09/12/18

In November 2017, Washington County Sheriff’s Deputies began investigating a report of two stolen American Pitbull Terriers in the City of Banks. Deputies identified Luis Bonilla, 51, as the suspect but were unable to locate the stolen dogs. Mr. Bonilla was issued a criminal citation in lieu of arrest on November 17, 2017.

On May 9, 2018, one of the dogs was found wandering near SW 90th Ave and SW Oak St in Tigard. A citizen took the dog to a local veterinarian, who used a microchip to contact the dog’s original owner. A witness reported that a Hispanic male was seen driving through the area, searching for the stolen dog. Based on statements that the unidentified man made, it is believed he may have possession of the second missing dog, Blueberry.

Blueberry is described as an approximately 1.5 year old American Pitbull Terrier. She has gray and brindle fur, with white markings on her chest and paws.

Deputies are asking anyone with information on Blueberry’s whereabouts to contact non-emergency dispatch at (503) 629-0111.

Fire Captain Arraigned on Sexual Abuse Charge (Photo) - 09/11/18

On July 30, 2018, Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a complaint of sexual abuse. Deputies learned that the alleged conduct occurred in May 2018 at the Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue (TVF&R) training facility near Sherwood. The victim reported that during a training exercise, she was inappropriately touched in a sexual way by a training proctor.

The following day, detectives from the Violent Crimes Unit were assigned to investigate. The investigation revealed that an impartial witness observed the reported conduct. 

At the conclusion of the investigation on August 15, 2018, detectives cited Scott M. Taube, 52, of Vancouver, for sexual abuse in the third degree.

Mr. Taube previously worked as a contract employee for Washington County and was involved in training new emergency medical technicians at the TVF&R facility. He was not a TVF&R employee.

Mr. Taube has most recently been employed as a captain with Clark County Fire District 6. Questions about his current employment status should be directed to that agency.

Mr. Taube was arraigned this morning in Washington County Circuit Court on one count of sexual abuse in the third degree and one count of harassment. He was booked and then released.

Anyone with information relevant to this case should contact detectives at 503-846-2500.

Results: Deputies Conduct Over 500 Traffic Stops During Enhanced Patrols - 09/08/18

During a two week nationwide traffic safety enforcement mission, deputies assigned to the Sheriff’s Office Traffic Safety Unit (TSU) conducted 518 traffic stops. Of those stopped, 398 citations were issued and 217 warnings were given. In addition to seat belt violations, deputies concentrated their efforts on stopping drivers for speeding and using mobile devices.

Deputies would like to remind the public to slow down and drive courteously.

The original release is below.

 August 20, 2018 – Beginning Monday, August 20 and extending through Sunday, September 2, Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies will be participating in the national “Click It or Ticket” safety campaign. This campaign is being conducted in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), and Oregon State Sheriff's Association (OSSA), and aims to strengthening public awareness of safety belt and child restraint usage, distracted driving, and speeding.

Safety belts used correctly can reduce the risk of major crash injury or death by up to 65 percent. For safety belt systems, "proper use" means lap belt placed low across hips and shoulder belt crossing center of the chest over the collarbone. The shoulder belt should not be placed under the arm or behind the back.

According to the NHTSA, motor vehicle crashes are the leading nationwide cause of death for children ages one through twelve years old. In 2016, 1,582 children under age nine were injured in Oregon traffic crashes and five children died. It is estimated that car seats may increase crash survival by 71 percent for infants under one year old and by up to 59 percent for toddlers aged one to four. Booster seats may reduce the chance of nonfatal injury among four to eight year olds by 45 percent compared to safety belts used alone. ODOT crash data for 2016 shows lack of safety belt or child restraint use was a factor in 26 percent or 89 of a total 343 motor vehicle occupant fatalities.

A new Oregon law for children under age two requires they use a child seat with harness in a rear-facing position, unless the child turned one year of age prior to May 26, 2017. A child over age two or who turned one year of age prior to May 26, 2017 must continue to ride in a car seat with harness or in a booster until they reach age eight or 4’ 9” in height and the adult belt fits them correctly. The new law, which extends the rear-facing requirement from the previous age one to age two, will better protect the child’s head, neck, and spine from potential crash injuries.

For help selecting or installing child car seats, consult the seat manufacturer’s instructions, or your vehicle owner’s manual. You can also find a local child seat fitting station by visiting the NHTSA and Oregon Impact websites. Many car seat fitting stations will host special events during National Child Passenger Safety Week, from September 23 through 29, with certified child passenger safety technicians on-hand to assist families with selection and use of car seats and boosters.

Participation in this campaign is being coordinated by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Safety Unit, who is dedicated to promoting and improving traffic safety through education, analysis, and enforcement.

Deputies Arrest 37 People During Sex Offender Compliance Missions - 09/07/18

 

Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies, along with personnel from the United States Marshals Service, and Oregon State Police conducted two sex offender compliance missions over the past three weeks. 775 compliance checks were conducted, resulting in the arrest of 37 people. 

Between August 13, 2018 and September 5, 2018, deputies assigned to the Criminal Apprehension Team (CAT) focused on conducting compliance checks on sex offenders at their residences, as well as investigating sex offenders who were out of compliance. A two-day arrest warrant enforcement mission was also conducted. As a result, 57 sex offenders were identified as being out of compliance, 12 of which were arrested. 25 people were arrested on outstanding warrants.

The highly trained deputies assigned to CAT track and arrest offenders wanted for serious felony crimes. They also verify that registered sex offenders in the county remain in compliance with the laws and their registration requirements. The U.S. Marshals Service is the federal government’s primary law enforcement agency for sex offender and fugitive investigations. 

This is the eighth consecutive year that the U.S. Marshals Service, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, and Oregon State Police have collaborated on sex offender investigations and operations.

Deputies Arrest 47 Impaired Drivers During Labor Day Holiday Patrols - 09/05/18

September 5, 2018 – During enhanced Labor Day holiday patrols from August 17 to September 3, Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested 47 impaired drivers. Of those 47 arrested, five involved drug-related impairment.  

The Sheriff’s Office reminds the public to always drive sober or plan a safe ride home ahead of time. The original media release below.

Deputies Conducting Enhanced Impaired Driving Patrols During Labor Day Holiday

 August 16, 2018 – The Washington County Sheriff's Office, in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), and Oregon State Sheriff's Association (OSSA), will be conducting high visibility enforcement patrols looking for impaired drivers during the Labor Day holiday. The campaign runs August 17 through September 3, 2018.

According to the NHTSA, 37,461 people were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2016, and 28 percent (10,497) of those fatalities were in crashes during which a driver had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over the legal limit of .08.

On average, a driving under the influence arrest costs $10,000 in attorney fees, fines, court costs, lost time at work, higher insurance rates, car towing and repairs, and more.

There are many other ways to ensure a safe ride home besides relying on a friend. The options include using public transportation, calling a taxi, or using a rideshare program such as Uber or Lyft. In addition, NHTSA’s SaferRide Mobile App, available in the app store, is another resource to help those who have been drinking find a sober ride home—by identifying their location and helping to call a taxi or a friend to pick them up.

Please do your part in keeping our roadways safe and help keep impaired drivers from getting behind the wheel. If you plan on drinking or consuming drugs, designate your sober driver. And remember: Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk.

The results of the Labor Day holiday enhanced impaired driving patrols will be posted in early September

Woman Arrested After Menacing Trio with a Gun (Photo) - 08/27/18

On Sunday, August 26, 2018, at 11:05 p.m., Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the report of a menacing with a handgun at Vista Brook Park in Raleigh Hills. A group of three friends was walking in the park when they were approached by an individual who pointed a handgun at them. The trio ran to a nearby house and asked the homeowner to call 911. They were able to describe the suspect and the firearm.

Deputies converged on the area and walked the Fanno Creek Trail, which runs along the south side of the park. A short time later, deputies located and detained a person matching the suspect description. While searching the person, they located a realistic-looking Airsoft gun. The victims were able to positively identify the suspect.

Deputies arrested Kadin E. Moore, 19, of Beaverton and charged her with menacing. Ms. Moore explained that she was playing a prank on the group. The victims and the suspect did not know one another. Ms. Moore was lodged at the Washington County Jail and was released earlier this morning.

At this time, there is no known connection between this incident and a reported sexual assault that took place on the Fanno Creek Trail on July 19, 2018.

Anyone with information relevant to this investigation is asked to contact deputies at 503-629-0111.
