Two Oregon City residents were arrested this morning for distributing methamphetamine and child neglect (Photo) - 07/14/18

The Oregon City Police Department completed a month long investigation into the distribution of methamphetamine. This morning, we executed a search warrant at 200 Longview Way #67 in Oregon City, Oregon.  During the search of the residence, and with the help of Drug Detection K9 Grendel, a significant amount of methamphetamine and cash were seized, as well as evidence of drug distribution, and stolen property from recent burglaries in Oregon City. The occupants of the residence were both taken into custody and identified as 51-year-old Gregory Reddon and 44-year-old Tina Anderson.  There was also a five (5) year old child in the residence at the time of the execution of the search warrant.  We worked with DHS to get the child reunited with a relative.  Both Reddon and Anderson were taken to the Clackamas County Jail and lodged on the following charges: Child Neglect in the 1st degree ($20,000 bail), Conspiracy to Deliver Methamphetamine ($20,000 bail), Theft in the 1st degree ($10,000 bail), Possession of a Controlled Substance – Methamphetamine ($2,500 bail), & Frequenting a place where drugs are sold ($2,500 bail). 

If you know someone who is selling drugs or suspect illegal activity is occurring, we would like to hear from you.  You can reach us through our dispatch at 503-655-8211 or call our tip line at 503-496-1616.  

Oregon City Police Department Stats from Pedestrian Safety Operation - 07/10/18

The Oregon City Police Department conducted its first pedestrian safety enforcement operation for 2018. The safety enforcement operation was funded by a grant from Oregon Impact.

The primary focus of this operation was to educate drivers and help raise awareness of the pedestrian right away laws. The Oregon City Police Department used a pedestrian decoy, while another police officer observed traffic violations occurring and radioed awaiting uniform officers to make the stop. The officers issued citations or warnings to help educate the violators. Eight drivers did not stop for the pedestrian decoy.

The safety operation occurred on July 6, 2018, at the intersection of 7th St. and John Adams St. between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. The operation resulted in 36 drivers being stopped. The violations included 8 citations issued for failing to stop or remained stopped for a pedestrian, 9 citations issued for driving while using a mobile communication device, 1 for no insurance, 2 for failure to obey a traffic control device, 2 for no operator’s license, 2 for not wearing a seatbelt, and 1 equipment violation.  One driver was arrested for driving while criminally suspended.  9 warnings were given during the operation.

This intersection was specifically selected for the pedestrian safety operation due to heavy foot traffic along 7th St.  This intersection has a flashing pedestrian signal at the crosswalk.  The Oregon City Police Department wants to remind everyone to be aware of your surroundings when operating a motor vehicle and avoid distracted driving by not using your mobile communication device.

Pedestrian Safety Operation - July 6, 2018 - 07/02/18

The Oregon City Police Department will be conducting a Pedestrian Safety Operation on Friday, July 6, 2018. This operation will be held on 7th St. at John Adams St. in Oregon City and last from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm.

The primary focus of this operation is to raise pedestrian safety awareness. The Oregon City Police Department hopes to raise awareness of drivers and pedestrians through education and enforcement of the pedestrian right away laws, using a decoy pedestrian. Warning signs will be posted prior to entering the pedestrian safety operation zone.

As a reminder, motorists must stop and yield to pedestrians who are waiting to cross, or are crossing the roadway, ORS 811.028. A pedestrian is crossing the roadway in a crosswalk when any part or extension of the pedestrian, including but not limited to any part of the pedestrian’s body, wheelchair, cane, crutch or bicycle, moves onto the roadway in a crosswalk with the intent to proceed.

The members of the Oregon City Police Department are dedicated to enhancing the safety of both citizens and guests of the city. Funding for the pedestrian safety operation is made possible through a grant from Oregon Impact.
