Suspicious vehicle in Oak Grove leads to a dozen charges
Wanted in 3 counties, suspect found with stolen goods, meth
The Clackamas Review
Clackmas County deputies responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the area of Southeast Oetkin and Minerva roads in Oak Grove at 2:41 a.m. on Monday, June 3, to find a suspect with warrants out of three counties in a stolen truck loaded with reportedly stolen goods.
Deputies arrived to find a red Chevy truck loaded with construction equipment and Tyson Ferral Jones, 34, in the drivers seat. Police say Jones, who has warrants out of Multnomah, Deschutes and Baker counties, initially gave deputies a false name.
After a police-canine unit alerted deputies to search the truck, they found methamphetamine and an Oregon license plate out of Seaside under the front seat.
Deputies then arrested Jones on possession of a controlled substance, two counts of first-degree theft, first-degree burglary, probation violation and failure to appear in court on a host of additional charges. These charges included interfering with a police animal, unauthorized use of a vehicle, possession of a stolen vehicle, eluding a police officer, resisting arrest, reckless driving, fourth-degree assault and first-degree theft. Bail was set at $107,500.
Seaside police later identified as stolen the plate that had accompanied a gray/silver enclosed trailer containing approximate $41,000 worth of tools. Seaside PD also noted that credit cards stolen from the same area were now being used at multiple Clackamas businesses, including Coastal Farms, Best Buy, Fred Meyer and the Clackamas Smoke Shop.
Deputies then contacted Jones wife, Antoinette Jones, at the Comfort Suites on Southeast McKinley Avenue in Clackamas. Following an interview with her in a hotel room there, deputies recovered the stolen trailer in Gresham, as well as a number of other items, including a bag of Oregon IDs, iPods, iPads, a Galaxy Note and other merchandise.
Police housed the trailer in their recovered property area, and the Clackamas County Sheriffs Office is working with the Seaside Police Department to return stolen items to their rightful owners.
