Local felon arrested on weapons offenses
Following numerous reports of a man assaulting, menacing and pointing guns at people in Gresham and Portland, police on Thursday, March 7, arrested a man on weapon offenses.
Swann Devon Carmicle, 26, of outer East Portland is being held at the Multnomah County Detention Center on $58,000 bail for 14 counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm, fourth-degree domestic violence assault, domestic violence menacing, unlawful use of a weapon and pointing a firearm at another person.
He also is being held without bail on an indictment warrant related to a 2010 gun case.
The Portland Police Bureau's Special Emergency Reaction Team served a warrant at a home in the 17400 block of Southeast Powell Boulevard as part of an investigation being conducted by the Gun Task Force and Gang Enforcement Team into reports of a man assaulting, menacing and pointing guns at people in Gresham and Portland.
After one incident, officers tried to stop a vehicle associated with Carmicle, but the driver didn't stop and officers did not pursue the vehicle. They did, however, find a handgun thrown from the vehicle.
Police at 5:15 a.m. on March 7, arrested Carmicle without incident. During a search of his home, police seized a rifle as well as various calibers of ammunition.
The case will be presented to the U.S. Attorney's Office for possible federal prosecution.
