Teen arrested in connection with truck fire, another suspect sought

Posted: Updated:

Officers have arrested one teen and are searching for another suspect after a stolen truck was set on fire in north Portland.

Jessica Usmanova, 18, is facing charges including theft and attempting to elude an officer. 

Investigators say the Chevy pickup was found on fire Sunday on North Interstate and Greeley avenues. Firefighters were able to put out the fire and they say only the inside was damaged.

A railway employee notified a Portland Police officer about the fire and about the suspects leaving the area. After a short police chase, officers say Usmanova and a man tried running away. The man has been identified and has a warrant outstanding for his arrest.
