POLICE PHOTO - Brett McQuistonBeaverton authorities have accused a man of burglarizing several BottleDrop locations — and using the money to purchase a Hummer.

Police say they arrested Brett J. McQuiston, 34, after a security guard spotted a masked man with a crowbar prowling inside the Beaverton BottleDrop, 9307 S.W. Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy., around 11:39 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 5.

Officers say they detained McQuiston after he tried to flee the area, and also located stolen money, a ski mask, gloves and a crowbar.

According to a news release, McQuiston admited to burglarizing the Beaverton BottleDrop once before in April, as well as the Tigard, Redmond and Corvallis BottleDrop locations in June.

"Mr. McQuiston stated he bought a H3 Hummer with the stolen money and also lost a large sum gambling," officers said.

A Washington County Grand Jury heard testimony on the case Sept. 16, and indicted McQuiston on three counts each of first-degree burglary and first-degree aggravated theft.

Authorities say further charges are possible in Corvallis and Redmond. McQuiston has been arrested on burglary and theft charges on multiple occasions before, primarily in Clatsop County, according to court records. He was arrested for reckless driving and resisting arrest in Multnomah County last year.
