CLACKAMAS COUNTY Ore. (KPTV) - A man wanted for several felony charges was believed by Clackamas County Sheriff’s deputies to be in the Damascus area, triggering a search for most of Friday afternoon and evening, according to the sheriff’s office.
At about 3 p.m., deputies responded to the area of of SE Hoffmeister Road and Southeast 242nd Avenue after the report of an RV “setting up camp in the middle of the road,” deputies said.
