Suspects sought in Clackamas County hydrant-tampering case

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public’s help to solve several cases involving fire-hydrant tampering.

The Clackamas River Water District experienced five incidents of tampering that have caused several thousands of dollars in damage and boil-water notices for thousands of residents.

The hydrants that have been tampered with are south of the Clackamas River and southeast of Oregon City in the Redland/Beavercreek area, between June and August.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information.

Information learned from social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter or YouTube may lead to the identification of a suspect or suspects, said CCSO Sgt. Nate Thompson. Links can be shared anonymously through Crime Stoppers at crimestoppersoforegon.com/submit_online_tip.php.
