News Releases
Three men issued criminal citations for actions during civilian traffic stop - 09/17/20

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office values the safety and well-being of the community and supports the right of everyone to travel freely in our county. We continue to review all related reports of illegal activity in Multnomah County.

On Tuesday, September 15, 2020, at 8:32 p.m., patrol deputies responded to the intersection of E. Larch Mountain Road and E. Historic Columbia River Highway on a report of an illegal roadblock and civilian traffic stop. Deputies interviewed the driver who reported being followed and blocked by three vehicles on E. Larch Mountain Rd. After an investigation, deputies issued criminal citations for disorderly conduct in the second degree to three individuals:

  • Joshua D. Smith, 36 of Corbett
  • Travis Lucky, 18, of Corbett
  • Michael G. Meier, 36 of Sandy

The charge requires the individuals to appear in court at a later date.

“The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office will not tolerate this type of illegal activity,” Sheriff Mike Reese said. “If you see this activity or are stopped by a civilian, call 911, and a deputy will respond and investigate. We encourage people to call the Sheriff’s Office to report suspicious activity, and to not take action on their own.”

Because of the severity of the crash, MCSO’s Vehicular Crash team (VCT) was activated. Deputies arrested Thomas King, 28, believed to the driver, on a charge of manslaughter in the second degree. The cause of the crash is under investigation. All impacted roads reopened around 5:30 a.m. No further comment is available at this time.
