Location of Incident: SE 3rd and SE Reed Lane

Suspects:

Dylan Phillip Ricker                       19 year old                             Bend resident

Narrative:

Within the past two weeks, the City of Bend Police Department received information that Dylan Ricker, a 19-year-old Bend resident, was supplying cocaine and other controlled substances to high school students in the Bend area. Information received revealed that Ricker was conducting these drug deals off school campuses, but sometimes within a 1000 feet of a school.

The Bend Police Department Intelligence Led Policing Team (ILP) started working the case as a problem oriented policing project. Members of the ILP Team conducted surveillance on several days, concluding with surveillance on November 6th.

During surveillance on November 6th, Ricker was seen stopping at two different schools, one during lunch and one after school. Each time Ricker picked up one student. Officers were able to develop enough information to stop the vehicle driven by Ricker, which was a 2003 Subaru Impreza. Officers also observed several traffic violations to include Failure to Maintain a Lane of Travel.

During the traffic stop, officers searched Ricker’s vehicle and located several different types of controlled substances and items that were consistent with the sales of controlled substances.

Included in the seized items were over 10 grams of cocaine that were separately packaged for sale, user amounts of methamphetamine, MDMA (ecstasy), and Xanax. Over $4000 dollars of cash was seized that is believed to be from sales of the listed controlled substances.

During this investigation, Ricker was found to have provided at least one juvenile with cocaine and Xanax on multiple occasions.

Ricker placed into custody for Possession of Cocaine, Delivery of Cocaine, Manufacture of Cocaine, Possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance (Xanax), Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of MDMA (ecstasy), Delivery of Cocaine to a Minor and Delivery of Schedule IV Controlled Substance to a Minor. Ricker was transported to the Deschutes County Adult Jail, where he was lodged on the listed charges.

The Bend Police Department took the information we received about Ricker delivering controlled substances to local high school students seriously. We partner with the Bend La Pine Schools in many ways to help provide a safe environment for our students to learn. This case was an example on another way we can make a safer learning environment for our students.

Case # 2018-329408                            

Date & Time of Incident: October 23, 2018                                                    

Type of Incident:  Theft I                                                                               

Location of Incident:  61000 block of SE Brock Lane

Victim:

Pape Machinery

Suspect:

Justin David Goulet                     31 year old                                  Salem resident

Narrative:

Early in the morning of October 23, Bend Police received information that Jason David Goulet was at an address in the 61000 block of SE Brock Lane. Officers with the Bend Police Department learned that Goulet had a warrant for his arrest out of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office for two counts of Theft I and one out of Wake County North Carolina for a Parole Violation. Officers also learned that Goulet was wanted (no active arrest warrant) out of Thurston County Washington for an Assault II, which was related to a domestic violence assault.

Officers located Goulet’s vehicle in the driveway of the reported house and conducted follow up investigations while surveilling the residence. During this time Bend Police received information that Goulet might be in possession of a firearm.

At 09:50 am, officers witnessed Goulet get into his vehicle, a 2012 Dodge pickup, and drive onto Parrell Road. There was a short pursuit which was quickly terminated. Officers were able to locate Goulet’s vehicle abandoned in the area of Lorenz and Stone Creek.

Based on the severity of the crimes Goulet was wanted for and the area in which Goulet fled, Silver Rail Elementary School was placed into a precautionary lockout. There was no direct threat to the school or students.  

A Bureau of Land Management K9 Officer, Bend Police K9 “Kim” and a Bend Police Department drone were deployed in an attempt to locate Goulet. Officers saturated the neighborhood around Silver Rail Elementary looking for Goulet. A Bend Police Traffic Officer spotted Goulet in a small park adjacent to Silver Rail Elementary. Goulet was taken into custody without incident. Goulet was not found to be in possession of any firearms.

During the investigation with Goulet, officers learned Goulet created a fake bank and bank account to purchase three Stihl Chainsaws from a local business. The fraudulent cashier’s check was for $4000 dollars. Goulet then sold the chainsaws on Craigslist/Bend making approximately $2500 dollars. The cashier’s check used was very realistic in appearance and could easily be mistaken for a legitimate check.

The scam Goulet put together included creating a website for APX Commercial Bank. Goulet used a re-routed phone number so he could take calls for the “bank.” It is not known if Goulet used this fake account and/or checks from this bank for any other fraudulent activity.

We are asking the community for help in locating the three chainsaws purchased with fraudulent activity. The saws are described, with serial numbers, below:

  • Stihl MS661rcm               serial number #184499316
  • Stihl MS461R28              serial number #184596769
  • Stihl MS461R28              serial number #184159922

Goulet was transported to the Deschutes County Jail and lodged on charges consisting of Forgery I, four counts of Theft I, Computer Crime, Felony Elude, Reckless Driving and various traffic violations. Goulet was also lodged on the Theft I warrant out of Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

We are asking anyone in the community with information regarding any activity with Goulet and/or APX Bank to call the Bend Police Department at 541-693-6911.
