Police recover luggage believed stolen from PDX in Vancouver

Posted: Updated:

Police tracked down six suitcases and numerous other items in Vancouver believed to have been stolen from the Portland International Airport.

Officers from the Port of Portland and Vancouver served a search warrant at 10 a.m. Tuesday at a home in the 9600 block of Southeast Seventh Street in Vancouver.

Prior to the search, Port of Portland police identified a group of people suspected in 15 cases of baggage thefts since May 2012.

Four suspects were detained at the home. Two were arrested on unrelated warrants by Vancouver police.

Lee Caballero, 32, and Danielle Marie Cramer, 29 were arrested. The others were released as the investigation continues.

Victims of the stolen property located at the home were identified by police and notification to the property owners is ongoing.

The arrests happened on the same day the charges were dropped in a similar case.

No complaint orders were issued for Joshua Ryan and Amanda Grogan. The district attorney's office made the same decision a day prior for two other suspects in the case, Brian and Nancy Mottaz.

All four were arrested after police said they used two young boys to help them steal luggage from the baggage claim area Saturday morning.

The district attorney's office said they did not have all the police reports in time to review and make final charge considerations for the four suspects. Once all the reports have been submitted and reviewed, the evidence will be presented to a grand jury for indictment consideration.

The two cases are not believed to be connected, according to police.
