Convenience Store Clerk Beaten During Robbery Attempt in Tigard (Photo) - 07/16/18

Shortly after 3:00 a.m. on Monday, July 16, Tigard Police were called to the Plaid Pantry convenience store located at 15995 SW Hall Blvd in Tigard. An injured employee called and reported he was allegedly beaten with a gun during a robbery attempt. The victim further added after unsuccessfully obtaining any money or otherwise, the suspect  fled on foot into the neighborhood.

Tigard officers arrived within minutes and rendered aid to the victim while other officers searched the area. A Tigard Police K-9 unit began tracking and ultimately led police approximately a quarter-mile to the suspect, who attempted to conceal himself inside a vehicle. The suspect, 45 year-old Arnold Luis Barriga, was taken into custody and lodged at the Washington County Jail. Barriga is charged with Robbery II, Assault IV and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.

The 24 year-old victim was treated at the scene for injuries sustained during the robbery. The suspect reportedly used a pellet gun to assault the victim repeatedly.

Series of Tigard Burglaries Ends With Arrest (Photo) - 07/02/18

Tigard Police arrested a 55 year-old man earlier today allegedly responsible for a series of burglaries in Tigard. The suspect, Ronald Lee Dickinson, had been originally contacted by Tigard Police on July 1 for an unrelated harassment investigation. During an interview, Tigard investigators developed information that implicated Dickinson for eight residential burglaries. All but one burglary occurred in Tigard.


Tigard Police has been investigating a series of  burglaries that began on May 9 and continued until June 25. Primarily, the burglaries took place daytime with most locations in close proximity to Hall Blvd. in Tigard. All the  victims reported the suspect forcibly entered into their residences while unoccupied. In many incidents, the suspect gained entry by breaking a window. All the victims reported items stolen such as money, jewelry and electronics. In one incident, a property owner reported a gun stolen. The property has not been recovered.


Dickinson (see photo) is presently lodged in the Washington County Jail on charges of: 7 counts of Burglary I; Attempted Burglary; 2 counts of Felon in Possession of a Firearm; Disorderly Conduct  and Parole Violation. Coincidentally, Tigard Police had previously arrested the suspect in October 2014 for burglary. There is no known permanent address for Dickinson.
