On June 15, 2015, shortly after 3:30pm, Corvallis Police responded to a complaint of a robbery and stolen vehicle from parking lot in the 1100 block of NE 2nd St. When officers arrived they contacted a male victim who reported an unknown male had stolen his Toyota pickup.
According to the victim, he observed the suspect who stole his pickup in the parking lot when he pulled in. While in the lot, the victim got out of his vehicle, and left it running with the driver's door open. While the victim was leaning against the bed of the truck, the suspect rushed past him, into the driver's seat, and closed the door. The victim fought with the suspect through the open window of the driver's door. He attempted to remove the keys, and attempted to keep the suspect from putting the pickup in drive, but was unable to do either. The suspect drove away at a high rate of speed.
The pickup is described as a tan colored 2008 Toyota Tundra pickup with Oregon license 115DSM. This pickup has not yet been located.
The suspect was described as a white male in his late 30's. He is about 5'10" tall with a stocky build. At the time of the crime he was wearing a bright aqua blue T-shirt with a design on it and cargo shorts.
Working with local businesses, officers were able to locate video surveillance footage that captured the suspect prior to the robbery. Photos of this individual are attached. If anyone has any information regarding the identity of this subject, of the location of the missing pickup, please call Officer Lyssa Richmond at 541-766-6924.
