Albany Police Open Registration for the 35th National Night Out - 06/01/18

In 1984 the National Night Out was created by the National Association of Town Watches in the Philadelphia area.  It is a nationwide partnership between police and community members. One of the most effective ways to prevent crime and make neighborhoods safer is for neighbors to get to know one another. Albany has celebrated this national event for more than a decade.  Local law enforcement and Albany Fire Department will briefly visit with residents of many of the neighborhoods registered. Residents of Albany are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors on Tuesday, August 7, 2018.  Registration for National Night Out 2018 is now open. Individual block party organizers should register their neighborhood events by visiting the Albany Police Department website at www.cityofalbany.net/police.

For questions about National Night Out, contact Lieutenant Travis Giboney at avis.giboney@cityofalbany.net">travis.giboney@cityofalbany.net or 541-917-7680.

Fatal Traffic Crash -- Albany Police Case 18-4629 - 06/01/18

On Friday, June 1, 2018, at about 2:52 a.m., Albany Police and Albany Fire Department personnel responded to the report of a single vehicle crash that occurred in the 1900 block of Cascade Heights Drive NW, Albany, Benton County.  Upon arrival, police located a red, 1993 Jeep Wrangler that had left the road and collided with waste and recycling receptacles, some brick columns, and a metal fence. 

 

The occupants of the vehicle were identified as 19-year-old Justin Neal-Gage Moller of Albany, and 17-year-old Colby Shane Waters Jackson of Albany.  Justin Moller was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Corvallis with multiple injuries.  Colby Waters Jackson died at the scene of the crash.

 

The initial investigation revealed the vehicle was traveling south on Cascade Heights Drive before it left the road.  Moller and Waters Jackson were not wearing seat belts at the time of the crash and both were ejected from the vehicle.  Investigators have yet to determine who was operating the vehicle at the time of the crash.  Vehicle speed and alcohol were contributing factors in this incident. 

 

The intersection of Cascade Heights Drive NW and Horseshoe Lake Circle NW was closed for approximately four hours during the investigation, which is continuing.  No further information is available at this time.
