Wilsonville police arrest individuals who could be involved in theft string
Individuals seen prowling the Oakleaf Mobile Home Park in Wilsonville were detained by Wilsonville Police at 3 a.m. Wednesday, June 10, according to a Clackamas County Sheriff's Office news release.
Five of the six individuals detained were juveniles, while Portland resident Brandon Dipwek also was arrested. Police cited Dipwek and released him pending further investigation.
The police received a call claiming individuals were walking through yards and up to homes in the mobile home park near Graham Oaks Nature Park. When officers arrived, they pulled over a Honda Ridgeline and later found the vehicle had been reported stolen by the Battle Ground Police Department. The subjects also were in possession of alcohol, marijuana and tobacco and were in violation of curfew, according to the release. The sheriff's office said it had reason to believe these individuals were involved in thefts in Sherwood and Gladstone.
Wilsonville police officers have made 11 arrests related to car break-ins in recent weeks.
"Keep valuables out of cars and keep cars and garages secure. Don't be an attractive theft target," the release read.
