On February 17, 2017, just before 9:45 am, Oregon City Police received a report of a strong armed robbery at the Highland Stillhouse Pub, 201 S. 2nd St. The suspect, who was later identified as 26-year-old Jacob Ryan Moses, entered the Highland Stillhouse Pub and stole two money bags. Moses was caught by employees and they tried to stop him but he was able to run from the location. An employee chased Moses to a nearby vehicle that was parked on S. High St. A citizen assisted and blocked the vehicle from leaving. The employee tackled Moses as he exited the vehicle and the employee tried to retrieve their two money bags. Moses resisted and tried to retain the stolen money bags. The employee was able to retrieve one of the money bags from Moses during the scuffle. Moses was able to free himself and ran away as police were arriving. Moses ran through several yards off 1st St. before disappearing. Oregon City Police with the assistance of the Clackamas County Sherriff's Office, Gladstone Police Department, and the West Linn Police Department set up containment. A Clackamas County Sheriff K-9 was used to search for Moses.

Clackamas County Sheriff Sergeant Don Boone and his K-9 Spencer, began searching for Moses from where he was last seen. Moses climbed a steep embankment that overlooks the Oregon City Public Works Building and hid in some thick brush. K-9 Spencer located Moses and he was arrested without incident. K-9 Spencer searched the area and located evidence along with the stolen money bag.

Moses was transported to the Clackamas County Jail where he was lodged for Robbery III and Theft II.

The Highland Stillhouse employee was not injured during the scuffle with Moses. The investigation is continuing and at this time the Oregon City Police are not releasing information about the associated vehicle and the identity of the driver.
