PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A local man faces charges after police caught him stealing money from a Tri-Met ticket machine.

Officers arrested Devin McDonald Friday, during an undercover surveillance mission at the Rose Quarter transit center, they said.  Police watched him jam several cigarette butts up the change dispenser of the machine, so customers couldn't receive change.  Then he came back, removed the cigarette butts and took the money.

Officer set up the surveillance sting after receiving several reports of similar incidents, investigators said. They are now looking at Tri-Met surveillance video to determine if McDonald is responsible.
