A police operation targeting white supremacist gangs in the Portland area led to a high risk warrant at a southeast Portland home Friday morning.
The Portland Police Bureau SERT team was called to the scene near Southeast 62nd and Clatsop. Three people quickly surrendered and were booked on charges of frequenting a place where controlled substances are used.
However, police said they did not find their main target. It was believed the homeowner, Jason Keithley, 30, was possibly hiding in the home, so officers launched cans of tear gas through the windows.
Keithley was not found. He is wanted on an outstanding felony warrant for possession of methamphetamine.
He is a white man, 5'6" tall and 180 pounds with short hair that is light brown or blond. He has blue eyes. Court records show Keithley has been arrested more than three dozen times in the last 10 years.
If you see Keithly, you should call 911 immediately. Anyone with other information about this case is asked to call the non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.
Those arrested Friday were identified as Robin Keithley, 53, Richard Blair, 42, and Marti White, 42.
Police said evidence removed from the home included suspected stolen property. Piles of garbage were seen outside the home and a green swastika was painted on a fence.
