It was a good day on Monday, September 25, for retail stores and the law enforcement officers who worked to find retail thieves in outer East Portland. This means it was a bad day for 22 suspects who were caught during the day.

Portland Police Bureau (PPB) East Precinct officers, along with the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office’s Retail Theft Task Force, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, and Multnomah County Parole and Probation, conducted a what they call a “Retail Theft & Criminal Interdiction” mission.

The team, in conjunction with local retailers, focused on areas in the Hazelwood neighborhood – Mall 205, Gateway, and Menlo Park in East Portland.

At the conclusion of the mission, 22 people were arrested for charges that include theft, criminal trespass, felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a stolen vehicle, carrying a concealed weapon, and attempt to elude in a vehicle.
The team recovered three stolen vehicles, four illegally-possessed firearms, and $6,380 worth of retail merchandise.
