Once at the scene, officers learned that a man confronted a woman and stole her vehicle.

Officers searched the area, but were unable to locate the stolen vehicle.

Police said officers later located the vehicle at around 11:05 p.m. in the area of Southeast 136th Avenue and Southeast Holgate Boulevard. Officers attempted a traffic stop, but the suspect driver failed to stop and a pursuit began.

He should have a hefty balance on his Oregon Trail Card to get cash for bail, all on Oregon Tax Payers expense. Thanks Kate for all you do to protect these folks.

And you libbies just keep voting for sanctuary politicians.


As always it’s so discouraging, along with being outrageously irresponsible and extremely dangerous, knowing Multnomah County will release this creature upon innocent civilized citizens in a matter of hours.
