On Wednesday, September 19, 2018, Portland Police Bureau Street Crime Unit officers arrested 48-year-old Jeremy J. McKinley at Dawson Park, located at 2949 North Williams Avenue.

This investigation occurred while officers were performing an investigation regarding illegal drugs. During the investigation, officers learned McKinley was reportedly selling illegal drugs in Dawson Park. Officers located and contacted McKinley seated in the park. He was taken into custody without incident. After officers placed McKinley in handcuffs, they searched him and located and seized a firearm and illegal drugs, presumably identified as cocaine.

McKinley was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Delivery of Cocaine within 1000 feet of a School, Delivery of Cocaine, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Possession of Cocaine, and Unlawful Possession of Firearm. McKinley has since been released from the Multnomah County Jail.
