On the otherwise quiet morning of Friday, April 30, law enforcement officers swarmed S.E. 35th Place, just north of Holgate Boulevard. Ten Central Precinct squad cars were there at 8:13 a.m. to provide assistance to an Oregon State Police Trooper there to take a wanted man into custody.
"Portland Police officers were assisting the Oregon State Police and the Columbia County Sheriff's Office arresting a wanted person," confirmed PPB Public Information Officer Sergeant Kevin Allen.
"I've been told to refer inquiries to the Columbia County District Attorney's Office," Allen reported. But, as this issue of THE BEE went to press, the Columbia County District Attorney's Office has not responded to our request for information about the wanted man and the reason for his arrest in Portland.
