by: Submitted David Freitag

West Linn police arrested David Frederick Freitag, 48, at the Country Gardens Apartments at 1745 16th St. on Tuesday.

At 7:25 p.m., five West Linn officers and a canine officer from Lake Oswego arrived at the apartment after receiving information that Freitag may be there and had a warrant for arrest out of Colorado for multiple parole violations.

Police Sgt. Neil Hennelly said officers armed with assault rifles surrounded the apartment and Freitag complied and surrendered.

'It was absolutely textbook,' Hennelly said of the arrest.

As of Wednesday, Freitag remained lodged at Clackamas County Jail.
