Location of Incident: 19717 Volare Ln, Bend, OR




Johnson, Dana Lee (Male)           36 year old                                            Bend resident


Capps-Watson, Angela                33 year old                                             Bend resident




During the morning of 1-18-19, a Bend Police Officer performed a traffic stop on a vehicle he knew was associated with two wanted subjects in the Romaine Village area. During the course of the stop, he learned the suspects were not in the vehicle, but were staying in a detached garage at an address on Volare Lane.


The wanted subjects, Angela Capps-Watson and her boyfriend Dana Johnson, had valid felony warrants for their arrest. Both subject’s warrants were for violating their Parole. Johnson was also suspected of failing to register as a sex offender.


When Officers attempted contact at the residence with Capps-Watson and Johnson, Johnson claimed to have a gun and threatened to shoot the Officers. He also claimed to have explosives set up and would detonate them if the Officers attempted to enter the residence. Johnson began barricading himself in the garage with Capps-Watson. Officers backed out to a containment position, and based on the threat Johnson presented and what appeared to be the validity of the threats, the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team (CERT) was called to assist.  

Johnson continued to refuse to exit the residence, made additional threats of having a gun and explosives. Eventually, Negotiators with the CERT team, with the assistance of Deschutes County Parole and Probation, were able to get Johnson and Capps-Watson to surrender. Both subjects were taken into custody without incident.


Further investigation revealed that Johnson had a replica handgun in his possession that he left in the garage when he surrendered. The investigation also revealed that the use of controlled substances were a factor in this case.


Johnson was lodged at the Deschutes County Jail for his Warrant, Fail to Register as a Sex Offender, Disorderly Conduct, and Menacing.

Over the past couple months, the Intelligence-Led Policing(ILP) Unit noticed a pattern of vehicles being broken into in the area of NW College Way near NW Regency.  Property had been stolen from unlocked vehicles in this area and in different locations around Bend.

Fake Twenty Dollar Bills
Fake Twenty Dollar Bills
Counterfeit bills passed in Bend businesses (Photo) - 01/15/19

Since December of 2018, Bend Police Officers have received over 15 reports of counterfeit twenty-dollar bills being used at local businesses such as McDonalds, Taco Bell, 7-11, Burger King, and Bogeys’ burgers.  The counterfeit $20.00 bills contain the same serial number and markings.  They look similar to legitimate currency, yet the feel of the paper is different. The counterfeit bills have the words “COPY MONEY” written in the upper right hand corner on one side, and “Specimen” written in red on the other side. 


In some cases, employees noticed the bill was fake or counterfeit, retained the bill, and contacted the police. In other cases, the bill made it to the banks where they reported the counterfeit bills.  Bend Police Officers continue to investigate these crimes and they request anyone with information contact the 911 Dispatch Center at (541)693-6911.


The counterfeit twenty-dollar bills in the photo have similar markings to the counterfeit bills collected by officers, but the serial numbers are different.

The officer was able to obtain a copy of the video surveillance from the homeowner. The officer was able to identify the suspect vehicle, which was a 2004 Kia Optima, as well as the license plate on the vehicle. The officer identified Steven Stout as the suspect.

On December 23 while on patrol, a separate officer was able to identify Stout driving the previously identified vehicle from the thefts. That officer stopped the vehicle in the 2400 block of NE Twin Knolls.

During a search of the suspect vehicle, officers located and recovered the previously reported stolen property from December 21. During the search, other property was located and was found to be stolen from a different package theft in the 300 block of SW McKinley.
