Early on Friday morning, Oregon City police arrested a suspect from Milwaukie after officers witnessed him get into a car in the fenced secure lot of a local towing company.
OCPD was notified at 12:24 a.m. on June 16 of a silent alarm at Gerber Collision Center, 128 S. McLoughlin Blvd.
Oregon City police officers arrived shortly after the alarm. As they were checking the Gerber Collision Center, they saw the suspect had gained access into the adjacent locked fenced area of Bud's Towing, 126 S. McLoughlin Blvd. Officers arrested Edward Eugene Davis, 43, without incident on charges of burglary, criminal trespassing and unlawful entry into a motor vehicle.
Davis has a lengthy criminal record that includes meth-possession and assault convictions in Marion County in 2009 and dozens of other charges between 1992 and 2007. More recently, in 2015, he was convicted of driving with a suspended license and driving uninsured.
