February 28, 2013-- Washington County Sheriff's Deputies were called to a crash in Raleigh Hills. It was reported a car caused a crash then fled the scene. A Tigard man was located and arrested. He was charged with numerous crimes.

On February 28, 2013 at 5:41 p.m. Washington County Sheriff's Deputies were called to a reported hit and run crash at SW Scholls Ferry Road north of SW Beaverton Hillsdale Highway. This is in Raleigh Hills, an area of Enhanced Sheriff's Patrol District (ESPD).
Deputies received information that a vehicle was seen driving recklessly prior to crashing into another vehicle then the driver threatened the occupants with a baseball bat before fleeing the scene.

Sheriff's Deputies arrived and found a 2008 Chevrolet Impala had fresh damage to the right rear side and taillight. There was also a four inch dent in the left side rear door that appeared to have been recently struck with a blunt object. There were two occupants inside the car that fortunately were not injured. Witnesses were able to provide a description and a license plate number associated to a white 2000 Ford Expedition that fled the area prior to the deputies' arrival.

Deputies located the Expedition at a house at 10610 SW Walnut Street in Tigard. It was determined the vehicle was driven by Ryan Thomas, 22, who resides at the Walnut Street address. Deputies contacted Mr. Thomas who was not cooperative with the investigation. Ryan Thomas was detained until investigators could determine what occurred during the incident.

Witnesses told deputies that Mr. Thomas was driving south on SW Scholls Ferry Road when he passed the Impala using a "left turn only" lane. Witnesses said that when traffic slowed, it appeared that Mr. Thomas intentionally rammed the Impala as it was in a turn lane attempting to turn left. The Impala was passing Mr. Thomas' vehicle that was in the lane to the right, waiting for stopped traffic. Numerous witnesses told deputies that they saw Mr. Thomas exit his vehicle as he began yelling and cursing loudly while swinging a baseball bat. It appears he struck the Impala at least once with the bat.

Ryan Thomas was arrested and charged with Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Reckless Endangering, Menacing, Disorderly Conduct, Hit and Run, Reckless Driving, and Criminal Mischief. He was lodged in the Washington County Jail and is held on $25,000 bail.

Detectives Arrest Man in 1982 Aloha "Cold Case" Homicide

February 28, 2013--Washington Sheriff's Detectives arrested a man and charged him with
the 1982 homicide of 17-year-old, Lori Billingsley.

Washington County Sheriff's Detectives arrested Kenneth Lee Hicks, 49, from Saint
Helens. He was charged with the 1982 murder of Lori Billingsley.

On October 10, 1982, Lori Billingsley's body was found in a drainage ditch on SW Miller
Hill Road south of SW Farmington Road in the community of Aloha. It was determined
that Ms. Billingsley was sexually assaulted and murdered.

Washington County Detectives tenaciously worked the case for over a year until all leads
were exhausted. Kenneth Hicks (19 at the time) was identified as a potential suspect but
there was not enough evidence to charge him with the murder. Sheriff's Detective Jim
Welch was the lead investigator assigned to the case in 1982. Detective Welch
(deceased) completed a very comprehensive investigation that would prove to be
invaluable to investigators decades later. While there was evidence collected,
Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) testing did not yet exist.

In the early 1990's, DNA was beginning to be recognized as a valuable investigative tool
to aid in the identification and elimination of subjects connected to a crime. In 1991,
Sheriff's Detectives submitted evidence from the Billingsley homicide to the Oregon State
Police (OSP) Crime Lab for DNA analysis. No profile was identified.

In 2010, DNA technology had advanced to allow testing of small or degraded samples of
evidence that were previously unable to be tested. In 2010, Sheriff's Detectives again
submitted evidence from the Billingsley homicide to the OSP Crime Lab for DNA analysis.
A DNA profile was identified but didn't match any people currently in the DNA database.
In April of 2010, Detective Mike O'Connell retired from the Washington County Sheriff's
Office after 30 years of service. Detective O'Connell served in the Investigations Division
for 23 years before his retirement. Detective O'Connell began as a Washington County
Deputy Sheriff two years prior to the Billingsley homicide. In December 2010, Detective
O'Connell returned part time to the Sheriff's Office dedicated to solving cold cases. He
began working the Billingsley homicide, supported by the Sheriff's Violent Crimes Unit.

Detective O'Connell served a search warrant to seize Kenneth Hicks's DNA. Kenneth
Hick's DNA sample was sent to the OSP Crime Lab. The DNA profile from the Billingsley
homicide was a positive match for Kenneth Hicks's DNA profile.

On February 26, 2013 a Washington County Grand Jury indicted Kenneth Hicks with two
counts of Aggravated Murder. District Attorney Robert Hermann was assigned to the
original case in 1982 and is currently prosecuting the case on behalf of Washington
County.

On February 27, 2013, at about 4:15 a.m., Kenneth Hicks was arrested and lodged in the
Washington County Jail. He is held without bail and charged with two counts of
Aggravated Murder.

Detectives are seeking the public's help regarding this case. If you have any information,
please call the Washington County Sheriff's Office at (503) 846-2500.

Spring Backyard Burn Season Begins March 1st

News Release from: Forest Grove Fire & Rescue
SPRING BACKYARD BURN SEASON BEGINS MARCH 1ST
Posted: February 28th, 2013 3:14 PM
Photo/sound file: http://www.flashalertnewswire.net/images/news/2013-02/1797/62109/Spring_Burn_Season.pdf

Spring back yard burning opens March 1st through June 15th. Remember to call the burn Number, when you are ready to burn, at 503.992.3242 . Oregon DEQ regulates the burning based on air quality considerations and notifies the fire department daily to find out if burning is allowed or not. Fires should stay within the burn times that are recorded on the burn message.

To stay safe, keep the fires small and have an established fire break around your pile. A fire break is a cleared dirt area that is as wide as the pile is tall. This fire break should be completely around your burn pile, never burn close to homes, fences, sheds or brush. Keep tools on hand and a water hose or other water source nearby incase the fire gets to hot or out of control. You can always call 911 if the fire does get out of control and you need some help. Never leave the fire unattended. It's only legal to burn yard debris, remember not to put any garbage, furniture or other things you are trying to get rid of on the fire. Also remember for rural residents agricultural burning is for farm or nursery debris only.

There are some alternatives to burning that can make you more friendly with neighbors and decrease complaints such as curbside yard debris pick up. There are also composting solutions available either commercially or by simply making a area of your yard available for composting or spreading the leaves and grass in your garden or flower beds.

Again call 503.992.3242 if you are going to burn as the messages changes daily based on DEQ regulations.

When: Thursday, February 28th, 1:00 PM
Where: Senate Education Committee, Hearing Room C (Oregon State Capitol, 900 Court St. NE, Salem, Oregon 97301)

A public hearing on SB275, a bill that will require all high school students be trained in CPR, is scheduled for the Senate Education and Workforce Development Committee on Thursday, February 28. At 1:00 pm legislators will hear from medical professionals, EMS officials, and Valley Catholic students trained in CPR.

Since that time, 150 8th grade students from Valley Catholic have taught hands-only CPR to over 2,100 community members. One of those community members was Vancouver resident, Angela Winemeuller, who had the chance to render aid to a cardiac patient in her hometown on February 24th, ONE DAY after learning hands-only CPR at a speech tournament at Valley Catholic.

Also testifying during the 1:00 pm hour will be Raoul Meekcoms, a cardiac arrest survivor, and his wife, Sandy, who performed hands-only CPR before Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue paramedics arrived to provide advanced life support care. (A compressed version of the 9-1-1 tape is included with this press release.)

Annually, over 300,000 people experience a cardiac arrest. Many die before ever reaching a hospital due to not receiving timely CPR. Sudden cardiac arrest can strike anyone, anywhere, and when it does, a patient's survival depends on the people around them. When provided quickly, CPR doubles the chance of survival for a cardiac patient.

"In TVF&R's service area, cardiac survival rates exceed the national average, ranging between 11% and 23% for the past several years. Fire Chief Mike Duyck states, "I attribute this, not only to our department's investment in paramedics and advanced cardiac drugs and equipment on every unit, but our community's demonstrated willingness to perform hands-only CPR during a cardiac event." Duyck added, "Passing SB275 will bring more than 45,000 trained lifesavers to our community every year."

CCSO: Lost Snowboarder at Ski Bowl Found Safe

News Release from: Clackamas Co. Sheriff's Office
CCSO: LOST SNOWBOARDER AT SKI BOWL FOUND SAFE
Posted: February 27th, 2013 8:58 PM

On February 27, 2013 the Clackamas County Sheriff's responded to the report of a lost snowboarder from the Ski Bowl ski resort on Mt Hood. The initial call was received about 3:45 pm.

Cody Johnson, 17, of Gresham called some friends who initially contacted Timberline Lodge and then spoke with Ski Bowl's ski patrol. Ski Bowl deployed resources which included their ski patrol and a tracked vehicle known as a snowcat to look for Cody.

Cody was instructed to call 911 so his location could be obtained through gps coordinates. Search and recue coordinators from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office responded to the area. Deputies relayed the gps coordinates to the ski patrol to assist with their search.

Cody was located at approximately 7:30 pm by the ski patrol and brought back to the parking lot by snowcat. Paramedics from AMR were standing by and assessed Cody's condition. Cody was not injured and after consulting with his parents he was release.

During the search an initial investigation revealed Cody had snowboarded in an area marked "out-of-bounds" with posted signs. As people enjoy mountain recreation we would ask that they be cognizant of markers and stay in the designated areas.

CCSO: Witness calls 911 after watching suspect burglarize her Lake Oswego area home

CCSO: WITNESS CALLS 911 AFTER WATCHING SUSPECT BURGLARIZE HER LAKE OSWEGO AREA HOME
Posted: February 27th, 2013 2:52 PM
Photo/sound file: http://www.flashalertnewswire.net/images/news/2013-02/624/62079/13-06003.JPG (suspect sketch)

On February 25, 2013 at approximately 2:30 pm, deputies from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and police officers from the Lake Oswego Police Department responded to a residence on the 13200 block of Sw 63rd Ave in Portland, OR for the report of a burglary that had just occurred.

The witness who was identified as Juliann Peterson, age 19 of Portland, watched the incident from a nearby house.

Peterson knew the person did not belong there because she lives at the victim's residence. She watched the suspect walk up and wait at the front door of the house before he entered the home. A short while later the suspect exited the residence.

Peterson went outside and yelled at the suspect who turned to look at her and then ran away southbound from the location with items he had stolen from the residence.

Peterson called 911 at that point to report the crime.

The following day, Peterson met with a forensic artist who works for the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office to complete a composite sketch of the suspect.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his mid 30's, 5'7' -5'8" tall with a stocky build. He was further described as having a round fat face with wrinkles in the cheeks and neck area. At the time of the burglary the suspect was wearing a black beanie, black coat, black pants, black gloves and was carrying a black backpack.

OSP Troopers Planning Enforcement Effort Friday on Highway 6 West of Banks Targeting Violations Associated With Roadway Departure Crashes

News Release from: Oregon State Police
OSP TROOPERS PLANNING ENFORCEMENT EFFORT FRIDAY ON HIGHWAY 6 WEST OF BANKS TARGETING VIOLATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH ROADWAY DEPARTURE CRASHES
Posted: February 27th, 2013 9:40 AM
Photo/sound file: http://www.flashalertnewswire.net/images/news/2013-02/1002/62072/OSPBadge.jpg

Oregon State Police (OSP) will be conducting a high visibility enforcement effort on Highway 6 west of Banks on Friday, March 1, in one of the locations recently announced where OSP received an ODOT grant to provide overtime enforcement hours to help prevent roadway departure crashes.

According to Sergeant Luke Schwartz, on the afternoon and early evening of March 1, OSP will use overtime grant funding for enforcement on Highway 6 between milepost 30 and 45. Troopers will target violations that are factors in area crashes such as speed, fail to drive with a traffic lane, and DUII.

A "roadway departure crash" is defined as a non-intersection crash which occurs after a vehicle crosses an edge line or a centerline, or otherwise leaves the traveled portion of the roadway. Examples include crashing head-on, sideswiping another vehicle, and traveling off the highway and rolling over or colliding with a fixed object.

ODOT awarded OSP grant funds dedicated for overtime enforcement to help lower these types of crashes in specific highway locations identified as some of the worst areas in the state. ODOT identified the highway locations following a review of crash analysis data that pointed at crash types, causes, dates, day(s) of week, and time periods. The enforcement strategy is in addition to ODOT engineering work that is also helping reduce these crash types in the selected areas.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, roadway departure crashes account for 53 percent of all fatal traffic crashes. In Oregon, these types of crashes account for approximately 66 percent of all fatalities.

Information about the grant funding and targeted highways is available at:

###UPDATE###

After conducting several interviews, Milwaukie Police Detectives have identified the student that set a paper towel dispenser on fire at Linwood Elementary School to be an 11 year old boy. The boy was a student at Linwood Elementary and was participating in an after school program at the time the fire was set. The boy admitted to Milwaukie Police Detectives that he initially set a piece of toilet paper on fire, before lighting the paper towel dispenser using a lighter. The fire was quickly extinguished by a fire sprinkler system and damage was limited to the bathroom. Fire Investigators have determined that $5,000-$10,000 in damage was caused. The results of the criminal investigation are being forwarded to the Clackamas County Juvenile Department for consideration.

Five classrooms with students were in the school participating in after school programs at the time of the fire. Due to early notification by the schools fire alarm, all students and teachers escaped without injury.
If you have any information regarding this incident please call Milwaukie Police at 503.786.7500.

####

Shortly before 4:00pm this afternoon, Clackamas Fire Units were dispatched to Linwood Elementary School at 11909 SE Linwood Avenue to a report of a fire in the building. Crews quickly arrived to find that a small fire had occurred in the bathroom and was quickly extinguished by the fire sprinkler system that was installed at the school. The fire damage was limited to the bathroom and the water flow from the sprinkler head was quickly stopped. There were some students still at the school at the time of the fire who were participating in after school programs. All students made it out of the building safely and no injuries were reported. School will start at regular time on Tuesday however; some of the activities may be moved to different rooms if restoration work is not complete.

Clackamas Fire Investigators were on-scene and have determined that the fire was intentionally set. Milwaukie Police Department is now in-charge of the investigation and will be conducting interviews to identify who started the fire.

The fire damage in this case was limited due to the early detection and extinguishment by the fire sprinkler system that was in place. Clackamas Fire would like to remind people that if they know of a youth in their community that exhibits a fascination or an unsafe interest in fire, that we have trained professionals on staff to help educate them as to the possible dangers of fire!

Note: Passenger transported to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center identified as RUFINA VASQUEZ-GERVACIO, age 28, from Vancouver, Washington. All occupants were using safety restraints except for this passenger who had reportedly just removed the safety belt to lean forward to hear what front seated occupants were saying when their vehicle was struck from the rear. Her injuries are not life-threatening.

***

Three people were injured Tuesday morning when their passenger car was sandwiched between the back of stopped garbage truck and a commercial truck along Highway 99W south of Dundee. The crash blocked all or part of the highway for about 3 hours.

According to Oregon State Police (OSP) Sergeant Brad Hessel, on February 26, 2013 at approximately 11:20 a.m., a garbage truck operated by MICHAEL LINGLE, age 47, from McMinnville, was stopped straddling the right fog line southbound on Highway 99W near milepost 27 completing garbage pickup for a nearby residence. A southbound 2005 Scion Tc driven by ABELARDO LUCERO, age 32, from Vancouver, Washington, stopped behind the truck instead of going around it and was struck from behind by a 1991 Kenworth truck driven by MARK FOLSOM, age 53, from Portland. Upon impact, the Kenworth truck pushed the Scion into the back of the garbage truck.

LUCERO and right front passenger ROXANNE WHEELER, age 23, from Vancouver, were transported by ambulance to Providence Newberg Medical Center with minor injuries. Rear seat passenger RUFINA VASQUEZ-GERVACIO, age 28, was trapped and extricated by fire personnel from Newberg and Dundee fire departments. It took fire personnel about 30 minutes to remove her before she was transported by LifeFlight to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center.

OSP troopers from the McMinnville Area Command office are continuing the investigation.

OSP was also assisted at the scene by Yamhill County Sheriff's Office, Newberg-Dundee Police Department, and ODOT. No enforcement action pending.

The results showed that 57 percent of survey respondents were unaware of the issues facing the police, emergency management and the court, and therefore, would not support the bond measure at this time. The poll revealed 75 percent of the respondents gave police high marks on service delivery.

"We have our homework to do," said Mayor Denny Doyle. "We need to work with community leaders and public safety advocates to share our story. We know we need a well-designed public safety building that can withstand a major earthquake. The poll establishes a baseline for us; now it's time for us to get to work."

City staff is working on an awareness campaign that will highlight the police, emergency management and court's safety and security issues. The campaign will be conducted with the Public Safety Center Advisory Committee and the Beaverton Committee for Citizen Involvement.

"Our priority right now has to be getting our message into the community," said Beaverton's Police Chief Geoff Spalding. "We have always appreciated the public's strong support for the Beaverton Police Department and we must let people know about the security issues as well as the seismic concerns with the current building."

In early January, City Council supported relocating general purpose government to the South Office Building at The Round. This will allow the police department and court to expand into the vacated portions of the current City Hall.

"This buys us a little time, but doesn't address our safety and security concerns," said Mayor Doyle.

Beaverton enjoys one of the most diverse populations among Oregon cities. Most recently, the city was awarded the 2012 Mayors' Climate Protection Award from the U.S. Conference of Mayors. It was one of just four cities of its size recently recognized as a "Smarter City" energy leader by the Natural Resources Defense Council and one of the 100 Best Places to Live in America by Money magazine. In addition, Beaverton has been named one of the safest cities in the Pacific Northwest for four consecutive years, as one of the best places to raise kids by BusinessWeek magazine, an All-America City finalist, as one of the top 25 Suburbs for Retirement by Forbes.com, one of the 100 Best Walking Cities in America by Prevention magazine, the Recycler of the Year from the Association of Oregon Recyclers, a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation, a Bronze Award Bicycle Friendly Community designation by the League of American Bicyclists and as one of the Environmental Protection Agency's
Green Power Communities, the Beaverton Community Vision program was named Public Involvement Project of the Year--Best Planning Project by the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) Cascade Chapter.

Firefighters Save Nearby House from Fully Involved Garage Fire

News Release from: Clackamas Fire Dist. #1
FIREFIGHTERS SAVE NEARBY HOUSE FROM FULLY INVOLVED GARAGE FIRE
Posted: February 26th, 2013 4:15 PM

Shortly after 2:00pm this afternoon 911 Dispatchers began receiving multiple reports of a building on fire at 21900 S. Highway 213. Clackamas Firefighters arrived to find heavy black smoke and 20-25 foot flame lenghts from a detached garage that was just 10 feet from the residence. Firefighters quickly went to work protecting the nearby home and extinguishing the garage fire. The nearby home suffered only minor exterior fire damage but the garage with two cars inside was a total loss. Two people were home with their dog at the time of the fire and all escaped without injury. Fire Investigators have determined that the fire was caused by a mechanical failure in one of the two vehicles that was parked inside the detached garage. Damage has been estimated at $37,000 for the garage and contents.

Clackamas Fire would like to remind people to immediately get out of the structure and call 911 in the event of a fire. An active fire has the ability to double in size each minute that it burns so it is especially important to evacuate.

Three people were injured Tuesday morning when their passenger car was sandwiched between the back of stopped garbage truck and a commercial truck along Highway 99W south of Dundee. The crash blocked all or part of the highway for about 3 hours.

According to Oregon State Police (OSP) Sergeant Brad Hessel, on February 26, 2013 at approximately 11:20 a.m., a garbage truck operated by MICHAEL LINGLE, age 47, from McMinnville, was stopped straddling the right fog line southbound on Highway 99W near milepost 27 completing garbage pickup for a nearby residence. A southbound 2005 Scion Tc driven by ABELARDO LUCERO, age 32, from Vancouver, Washington, stopped behind the truck instead of going around it and was struck from behind by a 1991 Kenworth truck driven by MARK FOLSOM, age 53, from Portland. Upon impact, the Kenworth truck pushed the Scion into the back of the garbage truck.

LUCERO and right front passenger ROXANNE WHEELER, age 23, from Vancouver, were transported by ambulance to Providence Newberg Medical Center with minor injuries. An unidentified adult female rear seat passenger was trapped and extricated by fire personnel from Newberg and Dundee fire departments. It took fire personnel about 30 minutes to remove her before she was transported by LifeFlight to an undisclosed Portland area hospital.

OSP troopers from the McMinnville Area Command office are continuing the investigation. Safety restraint use is pending confirmation.

OSP was also assisted at the scene by Yamhill County Sheriff's Office, Newberg-Dundee Police Department, and ODOT.

The following information is approved for release related to multiple ongoing criminal investigations in different jurisdictional areas of southern Oregon.

On February 1, 2013, detectives from the Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement (MADGE) team and the Rogue Area Drug Enforcement (RADE) team executed a search warrant in Williams culminating an illegal money laundering and marijuana distribution investigation.

MADGE detectives initiated the investigation in Jackson County and developed information involving MICHAEL CANEPA, age 53, who resides in Josephine County. RADE detectives assisted MADGE in the investigation and obtained a search warrant for his Panther Gulch Road residence. Detectives from MADGE and RADE served the search warrant at the residence and seized approximately 161 pounds of marijuana, small amounts of heroin, cocaine, psilocybin mushrooms, 23 firearms, scales, packaging material and other evidence.

CANEPA was not at the residence when detectives served the warrant, but the ongoing investigation led detectives on February 11 to a Grants Pass-area motel where CANEPA was located and taken into custody without incident. RADE detectives obtained a search warrant for the motel room CANEPA was staying in and subsequently seized a small amount of heroin and other items of evidence. CANEPA was lodged in the Josephine County Jail.

Anyone with information regarding suspicious drug activity or marijuana growing operations in Josephine County is encouraged to call the RADE tip line at (541) 955-6970.

Anyone with information regarding suspicious drug activity or marijuana growing operations in Jackson County is encouraged to call the MADGE tip line at (541) 618-1847.

Gresham, Ore. - Police charged three Gresham men with multiple counts of burglary over the weekend after patrol officers encountered them as they were leaving the scene of a burglary. Calvin D Shadley, 21, Austin J Allen, 19, and Adam C Nichols, 19, were charged in the case after their arrest on Friday, February 22.

Detectives believe the trio is responsible for more burglaries, including a pair of burglaries in Portland's west hills, in which detectives have been unable to identify a victim as of yet.

The case began when a citizen who lives in the 2800 block of SE Vista Way, Gresham, called police Friday at 2 p.m. when three persons were seen trying doors in the neighborhood. Gresham Police responded and encountered the three as they were exiting a house they had just burglarized in the 2900 block of SE Vista, with goods from the burglary in their hands. The three fled on foot, but both Shadley and Allen were captured by responding officers who had set up a perimeter.

Further investigation by detectives identified Nichols as the third suspect and detectives and officers began searching the area of his residence, the 3500 block of NE 17th St. An officer encountered Nichols walking in the 2500 block of NE 23rd St., less than a mile from his residence, and recognized him from the description and photo that had been distributed by detectives. He was arrested without incident.

Police believe additional victims of Shadley's, who investigators say is responsible for several burglaries in East County, may be easy to find: Shadley often burglarizes in order to steal women's underwear.

If citizens have been a victim of a burglary in which women's underwear was stolen they are asked to call Gresham Police Tips line.

Detectives also recovered items they believe came from a burglary in Portland's west hills area: a white Emerson microwave, an iHome brand portable speaker system and a 35 mm Pentax K-1000 camera. Photos of these items are attached. Detectives are interested in talking with the person who lost these items in a burglary to their residence.

Charges: Nichols: Two Counts Att. Burglary I, one count Burglary I, one count Theft I;
Allen: Two Counts Att. Burglary I, one count Burglary I, one count Theft I;
Shadley: 10 Counts Burglary I, two counts Att. Burglary I, one count Theft I.

NEWS RELEASE

CCSO: Clackamas County Sheriff's Office partners with AlertID to provide up-to-date info on neighborhood public-safety issues

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office has partnered with Las Vegas-based AlertID, a private company that provides up-to-date information about crime, predatory sex offenders and other public-safety issues affecting local neighborhoods.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is the first law-enforcement agency in Oregon to make AlertID available to the community it serves. Residents can sign up for this free service online at http://www.alertid.com/clackamas .

AlertID takes data from the sheriff's office internal dispatch and reporting system and makes it available through a web-based interface accessible on computers, tablets and smartphones. After registering with AlertID, users can see a map of their community with markers that indicate the location and type of crimes that have recently been reported.

In addition to providing Clackamas County residents with current information about criminal activity, registered sex offenders, terrorism, natural disasters, severe weather and other threats to public safety, AlertID includes a secure social network that allows its users to share ideas and information with neighbors to address these shared concerns.
This service provides another channel for residents to connect with the Sheriff's Office, as well as state and federal authorities.

AlertID also includes a feature, called "My Family Wallet," that allows users to store photographs and vital statistics about their children or other loved ones that can be immediately transmitted to authorities in the event they become lost or separated.

Sheriff Craig Roberts said, "I am hopeful that the citizens of Clackamas County will embrace this new technology. As with any online network, it becomes more powerful as more people sign up and begin sharing information. This project embodies the motto of the Sheriff's Office -- that 'Working Together, We Can Make a Difference.'"

Railway traffic was affected Monday for several hours after a commercial truck transporting jet fuel traveled off Highway 730 south of the Oregon/Washington border and overturned onto Union Pacific tracks. After the initial truck crash, a train traveling through the area collided with the overturned truck. Oregon State Police (OSP), ODOT, railroad officials and local emergency responders including Hazmat personnel were on scene during the day investigating and coordinating removal the involved vehicles.

According to Trooper Jerrad Little, on February 25, 2013 at approximately 6:00 a.m., a commercial truck pulling to cargo tankers containing about 10,000 gallons of jet fuel driven by RICHARD T. JAMES, age 72, from San Antonio, Texas, was traveling on Highway 730 near milepost 203 when it traveled off the roadway.  The truck and trailers went down an embankment where they overturned onto their side with the truck coming to rest on railroad tracks.

JAMES was able to get out of the truck and was later transported by ambulance to Good Shepherd Hospital in Hermiston with possible minor injuries. He was driving for KCCS Inc.

After the initial crash, one train approaching the area stopped but a second train didn't stop and collided with the overturned truck and one of the tanker trailers.

Hermiston Fire Department, Oregon Region 10 HazMat Team, ODOT and Union Pacific Railroad personnel responded to the scene and assisted OSP. The major damage occurred to the truck. The highway was blocked for about 8 hours.

Fire Sprinkler Quickly Suppresses Fire in School

News Release from: Clackamas Fire Dist. #1
FIRE SPRINKLER QUICKLY SUPPRESSES FIRE IN SCHOOL
Posted: February 25th, 2013 7:00 PM
Photo/sound file: http://www.flashalertnewswire.net/images/news/2013-02/799/62027/Linwood1.jpeg

Shortly before 4:00pm this afternoon, Clackamas Fire Units were dispatched to Linwood Elementary School at 11909 SE Linwood Avenue to a report of a fire in the building. Crews quickly arrived to find that a small fire had occurred in the bathroom and was quickly extinguished by the fire sprinkler system that was installed at the school. The fire damage was limited to the bathroom and the water flow from the sprinkler head was quickly stopped. There were some students still at the school at the time of the fire who were participating in after school programs. All students made it out of the building safely and no injuries were reported. School will start at regular time on Tuesday however; some of the activities may be moved to different rooms if restoration work is not complete.

Clackamas Fire Investigators were on-scene and have determined that the fire was intentionally set. Milwaukie Police Department is now in-charge of the investigation and will be conducting interviews to identify who started the fire.

The fire damage in this case was limited due to the early detection and extinguishment by the fire sprinkler system that was in place. Clackamas Fire would like to remind people that if they know of a youth in their community that exhibits a fascination or an unsafe interest in fire, that we have trained professionals on staff to help educate them as to the possible dangers of fire!

Part of Black History Month Celebration

(Portland, OR) -

Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) will honor longtime Peninsula Wrestling Club coach and North Portland icon Roy Pittman this Wednesday, February 27, from 5:30-7:30pm at Peninsula Park Community Center.

Join us as we celebrate the Peninsula Park Wrestling program and honor the legendary coach Pittman as part of our Black History Month celebration.

WHAT: A tribute to longtime Peninsula Wrestling coach Roy Pittman
WHEN: Wednesday, February 27, 2013 from 5:30pm-7:30pm.
WHERE: Peninsula Park Community Center, 700 N. Rosa Parks Way, east gym.
NOTES: PP&R will honor Coach Roy Pittman's decades of efforts on behalf of Portland's youth. Meet Coach and the wrestlers of Peninsula Wrestling Club, enjoy refreshments, and learn more about the legendary program's history and ways to become involved.

Focused more on the process of growth and risk-taking than on winning, Pittman has worked with over 60,000 young men and women. Many of them have won state, regional and national titles. Peninsula Wrestling Club alumna and Milwaukie High School graduate Kelsey Campbell took part in the 2012 London Olympics women's freestyle wrestling competition.

Coach Roy Pittman, high school state champion, collegiate wrestling champion, Olympian, coach, mentor, motivator, inspirational speaker and dedicated community advocate, worked for Portland Parks & Recreation for more than 30 years. In 1970 he founded the Peninsula Wrestling Club, and helped place Portland and PP&R on the national radar. Coach Pittman retired in 2000, but stayed active with the Peninsula Wrestling Club, continuing nearly half a century of work.
It is fitting that he will be honored this week as part of the Peninsula Centennial Celebration & Black History Month.

Coach Pittman continues to rent out space from Portland Parks & Recreation to run the wrestling program.

"Coach is an inspiration to all with his tireless dedication to youth and their families," says Debbie Harris, PP&R recreation coordinator. "He has served Portland for five decades through his unwavering inspiration to the sport of wrestling; he reaches out to all, and has made his spectacular wrestling program a nationally recognized model of excellence."

Coach Pittman is lauded for his unwavering dedication to help youths overcome any financial, transportation or other challenges and make sure that anyone who is interested can participate in his programs.
The East Gym at Peninsula Park Community Center was dedicated and named for Coach Pittman in August of 2007.

Pittman has held wrestling practices for youth at Peninsula Park Community Center five days a week year around. His wrestlers compete in out-of-state tournaments, and he holds an annual wrestling summer camp.

Lincoln Interagency Narcotics Team (LINT), with the assistance of the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force and local and state law enforcement agencies, arrested three people last Thursday on several charges. One of the individuals arrested was wanted since 2011 and eluded capture about two weeks ago near Siletz.

Acting on information that wanted subject DENNIS ADLEM CAREY, age 26, from Toledo, was in the Lincoln Beach area, on February 21, 2013, LINT detectives and US Marshals conducted surveillance on a residence in the 100 block of Wakash Street. CAREY was wanted on a 2011 Probation Violation warrant and was reported armed with firearms as he continued to hide and elude arrest. Officers saw CAREY exit the residence on foot and he was apprehended by US Marshal Fugitive Task Force members. CAREY was in possession of methamphetamine and other evidence for which additional charges are pending.

A second male identified as ZAK ALDRICH HARRIS, age 30, from Lincoln Beach, was arrested at the residence for Probation Violation. CAREY's girlfriend, SARAH L. DAUENHAUER, age 25, was also arrested for Frequenting a Place Where Controlled Substances are Kept.

Information developed indicated drugs, a gun and cash was buried near the residence. Subsequent search found over 3 ounces of methamphetamine, heroin, cash and a handgun. A search warrant executed at the residence and a second residence in the Siletz area led to the recovery of firearms, including one confirmed stolen, and other evidence. A vehicle used by CAREY during a previous elude was found and seized by Toledo Police Department.

The arrests were part of a combined effort involving US Marshals Fugitive Task Force, Toledo Police Department, Newport Police Department K-9 unit, Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, Oregon State Police, and Lincoln County Parole and Probation. The investigation is continuing and additional arrests pending.

LINT is comprised of members from Lincoln City Police Department, Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, Newport Police Department, Lincoln County District Attorney's Office, and Oregon State Police.
