At about 2:17 pm, we received information Oregon State Police stopped a vehicle which was involved in the Chemeketa incident and has a subject in custody that is believed to be responsible. 

OSP Troopers from the Roseburg Area Command stopped the vehicle on I5 southbound near the city of Sutherlin and were able to take the subject into custody without incident.  This subject has been identified as 21 year old Taeton Harrington of The Dalles.

Taeton will be brought to the Marion County Jail where he will be lodged on criminal charges of Burglary 1, Criminal Mischief 2, Unlawful use of a firearm, carrying concealed firearm.  This investigation is still ongoing and the Sheriff’s Office is not prepared to release any further information at this time.  A photo of Taeton will be available once he is booked into jail.

On March 22, 2019 at about 1024 a.m., deputies responded to a report of a loud explosion within the Chemeketa Community College, Brooks’s campus 4910 Brooklake Rd NE. Upon arrival, deputies determined the sound to have come from a single gunshot round fired into the floor of a bathroom on campus.

There are no classes underway on campus due to Spring break and no one was injured during the incident. This is an active criminal investigation, and the Sheriff’s Office is not prepared at this time to release any further information. Investigators believe there is no immediate danger to the public.

Two Men in Custody After Burglary (Silverton) (Photo) - 03/06/19

Two men are in custody after a late afternoon burglary, in large part to a quality alarm and video system and a little luck.  Lawrence Hammond, age 33 and Eugene Schott, age 53 are under arrest and being taken to the Marion County Jail.

At 1:30 p.m., today, a resident in the 2600 block of Drift Creek Road NE called to report a male had just broken into his home.  The resident had a camera with a live feed and an alarm that alerted him to the break in.  The resident in turn called deputies with the Sheriff’s Office who responded to the scene. 

By the time the deputies arrived the suspects were gone.  Through the video deputies captured quality images of the vehicle and a suspect.  A short time later, deputies located the vehicle in the 8800 block of Silverton Road NE and arrested Hammond and Schott.   Hammond and Schott will be lodged at the Marion County Jail for the crime of Burglary I.
