Burglary suspect arrested in stolen car
A burglary suspect was arrested in a stolen car in Washington County early Sunday.
Alan De Jesus Victoria, 23, from Beaverton, was lodged in the Washington County Jail, charged with Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, Criminal Trespass and Criminal Mischief. He is held on $12,500 bail. There is the possibility of additional charges as the investigation continues.
According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, at 7:20 a.m. on Aug. 9. deputies were called to a reported stolen 1997 Mazda Protege in the 19900 block of SW Monson Street in the community of Aloha. The car was reported stolen overnight and a deputy entered the stolen car into the Law Enforcement Data System.
At 11:12 a.m. that day, deputies were called to the 300 Block of Northwest 183rd Avenue in Aloha for a possible burglary in progress. It was reported that a man was taking items out of a boarded-up house and placing them into a car.
The WCSO says the witness was able to provide a description and license plate on the vehicle the man was loading items into. It matched the Mazda that was reported stolen earlier.
Deputies arrived and found the Mazda driving out of the area and north onto Northwest 185th Avenue. Deputies performed a high-risk traffic stop on the Mazda at 185th and Northwest Walker Road.
Deputies arrested Victoria at the scene. They suspect there were several potentially stolen items discovered in the Mazda. Those items have been placed into evidence while the owners are located.
