At about 1232 hours, Officers took a report of a stolen Motorhome that was stolen from the 300 block of NW Georgia.  The victim had last seen his 2004 Winnibego Motorhome in his driveway at about 1145 hours and when he realized it was gone, he immediately reported it stolen.

While Officers were investigating the stolen report, the Winnibego was involved in a crash in the area of NW Greenwood and NW Hill St where the driver, Herbert Laurin, struck a parked vehicle, causing damage.  When Officers arrived, further investigation revealed that Laurin had stolen the vehicle. Laurin was transported to the Deschutes County Jail where he was lodged on the above listed charges.

At about 1334 hours, a Bend Police Officer observed a white Toyota Echo fail to obey a traffic control device at NE 4th and NE Greenwood Ave. The Officer initiated a traffic stop and learned the vehicle was reported stolen on 11-6-19 from the NE Bend area. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office had taken the original report.  Nicole Barclay immediately exited the vehicle and advanced towards the Officer and said, “What now?” The Officer was able to detain Barclay without incident. Barclay became uncooperative and Officers placed her in a WRAP restraint for her safety and theirs. She was subsequently lodged at the Deschutes County Jail on the above listed charges.

Later in the day at 1625 hours, a Bend Police Officer observed a 2011 Toyota Tundra getting gas at the Quickway Market (690 NE Butler Market Rd). The Officer recognized an occupant from numerous prior contacts and knew the occupant was often involved in criminal activity. 

The Officer did a routine records check on the Tundra and learned it was reported as stolen out of Harney County, Oregon.  The vehicle had been reported as stolen on 11-5-19.

When the Tundra left the gas station, the Officer conducted a traffic stop, with several other Officers, using a high risk approach. The vehicle came to a stop at 490 NE Butler Market Rd. Henry Duran (driver) and a male passenger were detained without incident.  The passenger was determined to not be involved with the stolen vehicle and was released.  Duran was in possession of methamphetamine and was arrested for the above listed charges.

Additional investigation revealed that Duran was given the vehicle to drive by Ashley Manahan and Lillyanne Kostelecky. The investigation revealed that Manahan and Kostelecky had stolen the vehicle from Harney County and driven it to Bend.  Kostelecky and Manahan were located at a residence on NE Wichita Way and taken into custody on the above listed charges.
