Deschutes Co. Sheriff's Office - 11/28/18

On November 28, 2018, detectives with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous tip that fugitive Brandon M. Blouin was staying at a motel in Bend.  A nationwide arrest warrant had been issued for Blouin after he failed to appear in Deschutes County Circuit Court earlier this month on pending charges of Abandonment of a Child, Child Neglect, Endangering the Welfare of a Minor, Criminal Mistreatment, and Felon in Possession of Body Armor.  Detectives worked quickly to determine which motel Blouin was at and along with the assistance of the Bend Police Department, set up surveillance at the Motel 6 in Bend, located at 201 NE 3rd Street.

At approximately 11:15am, Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested Blouin as he exited his motel room.  Blouin was subsequently transported to and lodged in the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Adult Jail.  At the time of his arrest, Blouin was found in possession of a dagger type knife, resulting in an addition charge of Felon in Possession of a Weapon.
