**CORRECTION**

Daryl Donat was arrested on June 24th as part of this investigation. He was lodged at the Polk County Jail

On June 24th, 54 year old Daryl Donat of Lincoln City was arrested and charged with the following crimes:

Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine (substantial quantity)
Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine

Total Bail - $515,000


On June 26th, The Polk County Inter-Agency Narcotics Team (POINT) completed several drug investigations that just began at the beginning of June 2014. The POINT team normally consists of a detective from the Oregon State Police, a detective from the Monmouth, Dallas and Independence Police Departments and is supervised by a sergeant from the Polk County Sheriff's Office. Currently the Independence and Dallas Police Departments do no't have a dedicated detective on the team due to their own department staffing issues.

Since the beginning of June several different drug investigations began and one thing was consistent between all of them, large amounts of Methamphetamine and heroin where being distributed throughout the non-incorporated parts of Polk County and also in the cities of West Salem, Dallas, Monmouth, Independence, Falls City and Grand Ronde.

During these cases nearly 2 pounds of Methamphetamine and over 2 ounces of heroin were seized, along with over $6000 in cash and one car. The street value of the drugs is over $41,000. "The cases that the POINT team concluded are very significant for our county, because these cases reached just about every corner of Polk County, including every city", said Detective Sergeant Mark Garton.

On June 24th, 54 year old Daryl Donat of Lincoln City was arrested and charged with the following crimes:

Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine (substantial quantity)
Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine

Total Bail - $515,000

On June 26th, 33 year old Christopher Perez of Falls City was arrested and charged with the following crimes:

Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine (substantial quantity)
Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine

Total Bail - $525,000.

There were three other people arrested throughout these cases. Not all of them were lodged at the Polk County Jail. There are still arrests to be made as a result of these investigations and additional charges will be filed to all of the involved.

Detective Sergeant Mark Garton also said, "while the POINT team was at it's minimum staffing level of three, they were still able to investigate these cases successfully and safely bring them to a close. There would have been no way for an individual deputy or officer from any of the agencies in Polk County to investigate these cases and get the outcomes the team did".

Replacing the Expiring Parks Bond to Fund Critical Repairs: Town Hall Meeting TONIGHT Offers Chance for Input, Questions Answered

REPLACING THE EXPIRING PARKS BOND TO FUND CRITICAL REPAIRS: TOWN HALL MEETING TONIGHT OFFERS CHANCE FOR INPUT, QUESTIONS ANSWERED


News Release from Portland Parks & Recreation

(Portland, OR) -

Portland Parks Commissioner Amanda Fritz will discuss her Parks Replacement Bond proposal tonight at a community Town Hall, including announcing specific examples of critical projects that could be funded if voters approve the bond this fall. Example projects include repairing or replacing 10 to 20 neighborhood playgrounds at risk of failing, repairing several community swimming pools to prevent emergency closures, and repairing trails and bridges to preserve access to natural areas and open spaces like Forest Park.

WHAT: A Town Hall discussion about how the Parks Replacement Bond will help address urgent maintenance needs with no increased tax rates for Portlanders. Co-hosted by Portland Parks & Recreation and Portland Parks Foundation

WHERE: Cleveland High School Cafeteria, 3400 SE 26th Ave.

WHEN: TONIGHT - June 30, 2014, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Please join us for a discussion about how the Parks Replacement Bond will help address urgent maintenance needs with no increased tax rates for Portlanders. Get your questions answered and give your input to Parks Commissioner Amanda Fritz.

Over the last century, Portlanders created and have maintained our parks system through a series of capital investments (bonds and levies). However, our park structures and facilities have finite life spans, and require ongoing investment to remain safe and accessible. As Portland's existing parks bond--approved in 1994--is paid off in 2015, we have the opportunity to address critical park needs without increasing tax rates, by referring a Parks Replacement Bond to voters now.

A recent survey shows that more than 65 percent of Portlanders are supportive of a Replacement Bond which would not increase tax rates and would fund some of the most critical repairs to our parks system.

Get your questions answered on this unique opportunity at the Parks Replacement Bond Town Hall.
For more info, please visit ParksReplacementBond.org

BACKGROUND
A recent Portland Parks & Recreation survey shows support for Parks Replacement Bond: respondents strongly in favor of funding critical parks repairs without increasing tax rates.
In order to assess support for a possible parks replacement bond, Parks Commissioner Amanda Fritz and Portland Parks & Recreation commissioned DHM Research to conduct a representative telephone survey of Portlanders. The survey shows that, support begins at 48% but once Portlanders find out that a replacement bond would not increase tax rates and would fund some of the most critical repairs to our parks system, more than 65% are supportive.

Replacing the expiring bond would generate an estimated $56-$68 million to fund critical repairs, such as:
* The replacement of deteriorating playgrounds, including the Couch Park structure serving the Metropolitan Learning Center (MLC) Portland Public school, which recently had to be removed due to potentially catastrophic failure
* Reopening and stabilizing trails such as the closed Maple Trail in Forest Park
* Repairing community swimming pools to prevent emergency closures and extend usable life
* Ensuring that more facilities and natural areas are safe and accessible to all, including people with disabilities
* Making repairs and protecting worker safety at Mount Tabor Yard
* Making much-needed structural repairs to Pioneer Courthouse Square
* Making other major maintenance repairs like restoring restrooms, fixing leaking roofs, and more.

Homeowners currently pay $.0877/$1000 on their assessed property value (AV) for the expiring 1994 parks bond. A replacement bond measure would replace the expiring one - without increasing property tax rates. If the 1994 bond expires in 2015 and is not replaced, the annual property tax rate paid by a typical homeowner with a home valued at $150,000 would decrease by $13.(1)

NOTE: (1) The property tax levy rate for the expiring bonds is approximately $0.0877 per $1,000 of assessed value. This is the estimated levy rate for November 2014. The proposed debt service of the new bonds would maintain the same levy rate of approximately $0.0877 beginning in November 2015. As the levy rate would stay approximately the same, the actual amount each taxpayer pays annually may change based upon possible changes in assessed value of individual property. Collection of property taxes to repay the potential new bonds would not happen until after the current bond expires.

DHM Survey Key Findings:

With minimal information, Portlanders express support for a parks bond at 48% supporting (26% strong support, 22% somewhat support) and 12% not sure.

Support jumps to 68% (with 40% strong support) when Portlanders learn the bond is a replacement bond and will fund critical parks repairs without increasing tax rates.

Even after learning that property taxes would go down if voters reject a bond, voters choose to keep tax rates level in order to make critical investments in our parks system.

Opposition to the measure only grows by a few percentage points (and support drops to 65%) when Portlanders are given opposition rationale about why not to support the replacement bond.

Among the top projects to support within the replacement bond: replacement of deteriorating playgrounds leads the pack, followed by repairing trails and bridges and conducting major repairs on community swimming pools in order to prevent closures.

Portlanders outline key reasons to support the replacement bond as being:
* because it would not increase the tax rate
* because it would focus on safety and critical repairs, and
* because it would fund removing barriers and making the parks system more accessible to all, including people with disabilities.
Portlanders love their parks system, with a large majority (87%) ranking the quality of service as very good (32%) or good (55%).

The Marion County Sheriff's Office will be adding extra patrols over the 4th of July weekend thanks to grants made possible thru the Oregon State Sheriff's Association. The extra patrols will be focusing on detecting and arresting impaired drivers.

With the warm weather and the holiday weekend comes the increased usage of our roadways to access our waterways, parks and rural camping areas. The Sheriff's Office wants to remind motorists that it is all of our responsibility to drive safe and sober.

If you are drinking and you must drive a few simple steps can help you avoid a crash or a trip to jail.

* Volunteer or designate your sober driver before leaving home.
* If you don't have a designated driver, ask a sober friend for a ride home; call a cab, friend or family member to come and get you.
* Never let a friend leave your sight if you think they are about to drive while impaired.

And finally please report any possible intoxicated drivers to your local law enforcement agency. The Sheriff's Office can be reached at 503-588-5032 or 9-1-1 in an emergency.

News Release from Portland Police Bureau
Posted on FlashAlert: June 30th, 2014 10:37 AM
Downloadable file: Irene_Marjorie_Milsom_22.bmp
This morning, Monday June 30, 2014, at 5:15 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to the report of a woman sitting on the railroad tracks in the 5200 block of Northwest Front Avenue.

Officers arrived and found 22-year-old Irene Marjorie Milsom sitting on the railroad tracks with her arm secured inside a large plastic drum filled with concrete. Milsom was accompanied by a group of 15 to 20 protesters who told police they were protesting "big oil" and "the burning of fossil fuels."

Milsom refused to leave the tracks voluntarily so officers assigned to the Metropolitan Explosives Disposal Unit (MEDU) responded with specialized equipment to remove Milsom's arm from the concrete barrel.

After freeing her from the barrel, Milsom was arrested for Criminal Trespassing in the First Degree, Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree and Criminal Mischief in the Third Degree. She was booked into the Multnomah County Jail and will be arraigned on Tuesday.

Updated information: The cause of yesterday's fire at 949 Willamette Falls Drive in West Linn remains under investigation at this time. A TVF&R fire investigator has determined that the fire originated on the back deck of the home. The fire is estimated to have caused $150,000 in damage. Additional photos are attached.

***************

Shortly after 12:30 pm, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue responded to multiple 9-1-1 reports of heavy black smoke and high flames coming from the roof of a two-story home at 949 Willamette Falls Drive in West Linn adjacent to the Tualatin River.

Upon arrival, fire crews from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and Clackamas Fire District #1 initiated an aggressive offensive fire attack. Recognizing that there was active fire in the attic, the truck crew laddered to the roof and cut ventilation holes, while engine crews performed an interior attack with 2 ?1/2" hose lines.

They were able to achieve knock down of the fire on the interior and exterior of the home within approximately 15 minutes. Firefighters were urged to use caution while engaging in firefighting and salvage operations near the home's back deck, which had burned through and weakened.

Neighbors reported that nobody was home at the time of the fire; a primary and secondary search of the 3,500-square-foot structure by fire crews confirmed this.

A TVF&R fire investigator remains on scene working to determine the cause of the fire and a damage estimate.

Enhanced DUII Patrols slated for July 4 holiday week

ENHANCED DUII PATROLS SLATED FOR JULY 4 HOLIDAY WEEK


News Release from West Linn Police Dept.
Posted on FlashAlert: June 30th, 2014 8:40 AM
The West Linn Police Department will be working in partnership with the Oregon Department of Transportation and other local agencies in putting additional officers on the road during the upcoming 4th of July holiday week. Funding is provided by a grant from the ODOT. Last year in Oregon, four people died in 4 separate traffic crashes during the 102-hour Fourth of July holiday period.
Officers will also be looking for distracted drivers who are texting and using their cellphones as well as enforcing speed laws. While death and injury are of course the most serious of possible consequences of drunk driving, there are other consequences that can affect lives for many years, including loss of a driver license, vehicle impoundment, jail time, lawyer and court costs, and insurance hikes, just to name a few.

WLPD offers these safety tips for motorists

* Get rested before you are tested. Fatigued drivers are more frequent during holiday weekends because of increased travel and activity. Be patient and allow plenty of time to reach your destination.
* Pay attention. An inattentive driver is a growing safety concern on our roads and an increasing factor in traffic crashes.
* Know before you go: Stay up to date on road conditions by visiting TripCheck.com or calling 5-1-1. Don't use your cell phone to check on this non-emergency information while driving.
* Even when workers are not present, all work zone speed limits still apply and fines double. Inactive work zones still have equipment, detours, and incomplete changes in the roadway so drivers need to slow down and be alert.
* Share the road. Don't tailgate and be sure to check your mirrors and blind spots before changing lanes.
* Be on the lookout for bicyclists, pedestrians and other vulnerable users of our roads.
* Always use safety restraints and child safety seats correctly (see www.childsafetyseat.org for free safety seat clinics and proper buckling tips).
* Don't drink and drive; don't be impaired and drive. These can be deadly combinations.
* MOVE OVER if you are approaching any type of emergency vehicle, tow truck or roadside assistance vehicle which is stopped on the roadside with emergency lights activated.



For additional information, contact Sgt. Wade Corbin at the West Linn Police Department at 503-655-6214.

Shortly after 12:30 pm, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue responded to multiple 9-1-1 reports of heavy black smoke and high flames coming from the roof of a two-story home at 949 Willamette Falls Drive in West Linn adjacent to the Tualatin River.

Upon arrival, fire crews from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and Clackamas Fire District #1 initiated an aggressive offensive fire attack. Recognizing that there was active fire in the attic, the truck crew laddered to the roof and cut ventilation holes, while engine crews performed an interior attack with 2 ?1/2" hose lines.

They were able to achieve knock down of the fire on the interior and exterior of the home within approximately 15 minutes. Firefighters were urged to use caution while engaging in firefighting and salvage operations near the home's back deck, which had burned through and weakened.

Neighbors reported that nobody was home at the time of the fire; a primary and secondary search of the 3,500-square-foot structure by fire crews confirmed this.

A TVF&R fire investigator remains on scene working to determine the cause of the fire and a damage estimate.

Boating Incident (Photo)

BOATING INCIDENT (PHOTO)


News Release from Clark Co. Sheriff's Office
Posted on FlashAlert: June 29th, 2014 2:56 PM
Downloadable file: Search area from CCSO boat deck
UPDATE: 06/29/2014
Clark County Sheriff's Marine Patrol assisted by Columbia County (Oregon) Sheriff's Marine patrol and USCG continue to search for missing boater, Jay Jones. Jones is missing and presumed drowned. Search boats are concentrating on approximately 1/2 mile area of the Columbia River from the mouth of the Lewis River at Austin Point upstream to the northern end of Bachelor Island on the Washington side of the Columbia River. The exact location where Jones separated from the small aluminum boat was not witnessed and is unknown making the search area significantly large. Search boats are scanning the river bottom using a high definition echo sounder and side scan sonar in an attempt to locate Jone's body.

Water temperatures are too cold for even strong swimmers and marine deputies encourage all boaters to wear a life jacket, especially when riding in open small craft vessels. Even while searchers are looking for the presumed drowned victim today, they continue to see boaters in small boats transiting the search area, not wearing a personal floatation device (PFD).

I attached a photograph taken this afternoon from the deck of the Clark Co. Sheriff's boat in the search area, with the Columbia Co. Sheriff's patrol boat in the background. I plan to update the SAR progress at the end of today.
Sgt. Fred M. Neiman

06/28/2014 Today, just after 5:30 pm The Clark County Sheriff's Office Marine Patrol was dispatched to a report of a boat adrift on the Columbia River near the mouth of the Lewis River.

Callers to 9-1-1 reported that the motor was still running, but the boat was un-occupied. At least one caller indicated seeing a person in the water. An extensive search by citizens, the Columbia County Sheriff's Office Marine Patrol, the U.S. Coast Guard and the Clark County Sheriff's Office Marine Patrol was conducted in an attempt to locate the boat's operator. The search has been unsuccessful.

The boat's owner, and operator, Jay Jones a 25 year old Battle Ground resident, is missing. The vessel he had been operating was a 16 foot Smokercraft brand aluminum boat.

Early morning Albany house fire

EARLY MORNING ALBANY HOUSE FIRE


News Release from City of Albany
Posted on FlashAlert: June 29th, 2014 11:16 AM
The Albany Fire Department responded to 3750 Glendale St. at 12:47 a.m. Sunday to a report of a fire in a garage. Firefighters arrived at the scene in about seven minutes and found a house partially engulfed in fire. Firefighters requested resources from neighboring fire departments to assist with extinguishment, and requested water tenders (tankers) to respond because the house is remote from fire hydrants. The homeowner was able to escape and exit with her child and pets before firefighters arrived.

The intense fire prevented firefighters from entering the house which forced them to extinguish the fire from the exterior. Firefighters worked through the night and were able to contain the fire to the primary residence; however, multiple cars in the driveway sustained varying levels of damage and a neighbor's house sustained some minor damage as well.

Twenty-five Fire Department personnel responded to the emergency including personnel from Lebanon and Tangent fire districts. Off-duty Albany firefighters and firefighters from Tangent Rural Fire District and Corvallis Fire Department also responded to handle subsequent emergency calls in Albany. The cause of the fire is under investigation. The home sustained significant fire damage; no dollar estimate has been made. No one was injured.

Public Alert: Cougar Sighting in Southeast Portland's Mill Park Neighborhood

PUBLIC ALERT: COUGAR SIGHTING IN SOUTHEAST PORTLAND'S MILL PARK NEIGHBORHOOD


News Release from Portland Police Bureau
Posted on FlashAlert: June 29th, 2014 10:29 AM
This morning, Sunday June 29, 2014, at approximately 5:22 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to reports of a cougar sighting in the area of Southeast 121st Avenue and Division Street.

Two different callers reported seeing the full-sized cougar heading North across Southeast Division Street and into the neighborhood.

Several officers checked the area but did not locate the cougar.

Anyone seeing the cougar should not approach it and should immediately call 9-1-1.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) has some tips to remember about cougars: http://www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/living_with/cougars.asp

ODFW advises the following if you encounter a cougar:

STOP - Never approach a cougar at any time for any reason.

STAY CALM - Face the cougar and do not turn your back towards it. Do not run. Running encourages it to chase.

APPEAR LARGE - Make yourself look large. Do not bend over or crouch down. Raise your hands. Hold your coat open. Hold small children.

FIGHT BACK - Fight back if attacked.

MAKE NOISE - Make noise while hiking to reduce the chance of surprising a cougar.

KEEP CHILDREN CLOSE - Always keep children close by and in sight.

AVOID WALKING ALONE

While there have been no other reported cougar sightings, the Portland Police Bureau would like community members to be aware of the possible sighting and encourages anyone seeing a cougar not to approach it but to immediately call 9-1-1.
