Tigard Police - 07/03/18 

Tigard Police arrested a 55 year-old man earlier today allegedly responsible for a series of burglaries in Tigard. The suspect, Ronald Lee Dickinson, had been originally contacted by Tigard Police on July 1 for an unrelated harassment investigation. During an interview, Tigard investigators developed information that implicated Dickinson for eight residential burglaries. All but one burglary occurred in Tigard.

Tigard Police has been investigating a series of  burglaries that began on May 9 and continued until June 25. Primarily, the burglaries took place daytime with most locations in close proximity to Hall Blvd. in Tigard. All the  victims reported the suspect forcibly entered into their residences while unoccupied. In many incidents, the suspect gained entry by breaking a window. All the victims reported items stolen such as money, jewelry and electronics. In one incident, a property owner reported a gun stolen. The property has not been recovered.

Dickinson (see photo) is presently lodged in the Washington County Jail on charges of: 7 counts of Burglary I; Attempted Burglary; 2 counts of Felon in Possession of a Firearm; Disorderly Conduct  and Parole Violation. Coincidentally, Tigard Police had previously arrested the suspect in October 2014 for burglary. There is no known permanent address for Dickinson.
