Man accused of vandalizing six SE Portland businesses

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Hours after several southeast Portland businesses were vandalized, police arrested a suspect.

Jaime Harold Calderon, 45, is facing six charges of criminal mischief.

Officers with the Portland Police Bureau said surveillance video from Northwest Auto Wholesale, one of the vandalized businesses, helped them identify Calderon.

A PPB officer arrested Calderon after spotting him at Southeast 139th Avenue and Main Street, a little more than a mile from some of the vandalized businesses.

Calderon is accused of breaking windows at Kelli’s Café, Key Bank, Northwest Auto Wholesale and Duke’s, all businesses along Southeast Division Street. He is also accused of vandalizing the American Legion and Stop & Go Market on Southeast 122nd, near Division.

A rock was thrown through the glass front door at Kelli’s Café, shattering it. Nothing was taken from the store.

“I don’t know what’s the reason,” said Elias Magadon, who works at Kelli’s Café. “They didn’t benefit at all from doing that. They just caused trouble for my boss and even for me. I’m dealing with police and all this.”

If other businesses suffered similar damage, they should file a police report online at PortlandPolice.com or by calling the Police Non-Emergency Line at 503-823-3333, then email your case number to Officer Wayne Schull.
