Oregon City police seek parking meter bandits
Oregon City police are looking for the person or persons who have been stealing parking meters from the downtown area over the past several months.
The latest theft was discovered Oct. 3, when someone again cut the metal pole and stole the entire meter.
"The thefts are occurring during the overnight hours," said OCPD Capt. Shaun Davis. "Meters generally contain a very little amount of coins, since they are emptied frequently. However, the meters are expensive to replace."
If you locate a stolen parking meter or have information about the thefts, you're encouraged to call the Oregon City Police Tip Line at 503-496-1616. Reference OCPD case # 17-3571.
