Washington Co. Sheriff's Office - 04/25/18 

April 25, 2018 – The Sheriff’s Office and Portland Police Bureau are seeking information regarding the suspects in multiple thefts from vehicles and fraudulent credit card transactions around Beaverton and Portland.
On April 16, 2018, Portland Police Bureau officers took a report of a vehicle stolen overnight from the 7400 block of Southwest 37th Avenue in Portland. The vehicle was described as a blue 2005 Toyota Sienna minivan with the Oregon plates 253HTX. Credit cards left inside the vehicle were later used to make fraudulent transactions at multiple businesses in Portland.

On April 19, 2018, Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to two theft from vehicle calls that occurred within blocks of each other overnight in Aloha. Deputies learned that a handgun was stolen from inside a vehicle in the 400 block of Southwest 195th Avenue.

A second vehicle was entered in the 200 block of Southwest 192nd Place. Credit cards, cash, jewelry, and prescription
medication were stolen during that incident. The stolen credit cards were later used to make fraudulent transactions at multiple businesses in the Beaverton area, including a car wash on Southwest Canyon Road.

Deputies obtained and reviewed surveillance video from the car wash, which showed the stolen minivan occupied by two males. A disabled parking permit is seen hanging from the rearview mirror. Upon reviewing the video, deputies saw that the license plates belonging to the vehicle had been removed, and the rear plate displayed Oregon 647BQN. Officers confirmed that plate had been stolen from another vehicle in Portland.
The Sheriff’s Office is releasing surveillance video from the car wash in hopes the public can help identify the suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call non-emergency dispatch at (503) 629-0111.
