Hello Corbett Residents and Affiliates,
This month’s Crime Log will be more of a short narrative. I can’t compile the log yet because a lot of the incidents are missing either the location or the incident etc.. Our Records Tech is still trying to work out some bugs with the new dispatching system. I’ll hope to have it sent out when I can fill in enough blanks.
During the month of June we had approximately 18 vehicle break-ins in the gorge. Only 3 occurred at Multnomah Falls. Six occurred at 1000 Acres (I84/ Jordan Rd), 4 occurred at Eagle Creek, 1 at Angel’s Rest, 1 at Oneonta, 2 at the Vista House, and 1 at an unknown location. Some of the incidents have “unknown” locations and this glitch will hopefully get fixed; we had a recent change to a new dispatching computer system.
This past week, thieves broke into a car at Rooster Rock. They were unknowingly tracked-down when GPS (global positioning system) in a stolen iPhone lead deputies to the thieves. One of the arrested subjects was allegedly involved in previous gorge break-ins several months ago. In that case, Citizen Patrol volunteers had spotted the same man this past winter after he allegedly broke into a car. Here’s link to the recent incident:http://www.katu.com/news/local/124945009.html
Just like larger cities, Corbett has its share of drug and alcohol issues. Here’s a link to a recent Gresham Outlook story about drugs in east county:http://www.theoutlookonline.com/news/story.php?story_id=130654446567875800
There was only 1 reported metal theft in June despite the rash of metal thefts in May. However, 3 burglaries all occurred on the same day . Here’s a link about the burglaries: http://www.portlandtribune.com/news/story.php?story_id=130827161005272000
. There haven’t been any burglaries since this time. It appeared that one of the targets was medication.
