Police arrest a transient in a burglary committed near the Springwater Trail on Harney Street

DAVID F. ASHTON - Officers captured a burglary suspect on the border between the Woodstock and the Ardenwald/Johnson Creek neighborhoods. In a rare moment when Portland police officers weren't running from one shooting call to another, they were able to track down and arrest a burglary suspect on Wednesday evening, October 27.

At 8:33 p.m. that evening, six officers were dispatched to the western stub of S.E. Harney Street, an area that borders Johnson Creek, west of 45th Avenue.

Officers arrested the man near "Pacific Auto Trim" on S.E. Harney Street, across from Johnson Creek Rentals. "He's one of our Springwater Trail 'residents'; we were able to get enough units free to catch him," an officer told THE BEE at the scene.

"In this case, a suspect was seen breaking into a neighbor's garage and making off with stolen items," later confirmed Portland Police spokesperson Sergeant Kevin Allen. "The neighbor pointed out the suspect to the responding officers, who arrested him."
