Sheriff Jim Yon reports his deputies arrested Johnny Angel Gonzalez, 37, today in connection with an arson investigation from earlier this week.

On Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at about 9:42 p.m., deputies were dispatched to a travel trailer on fire at 3285 NE Salem Avenue, Space #14.  The Albany Fire Department personnel deemed the fire as suspicious due to several people seen leaving the area moments before the fire started.

The victim, who owned and lived in the travel trailer, told deputies he allowed Gonzalez to stay with him for the last two weeks.  However, on Wednesday the victim told Gonzalez he needed to find somewhere else to live, as it was against park rules to have unauthorized guests.  According to the victim, Gonzalez became agitated and began breaking personal property belonging to the victim inside the trailer.  The victim and another witness left the trailer stating they were scared of Gonzalez.  Shortly before the travel trailer was seen…

Huffing Leads to Serious Injury Crash

Marion Co. Sheriff's Office


On Tuesday, March 26, 2019 at 1:30 pm, Deputies from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office responded to a single vehicle crash in the 4400 block of Lancaster Drive NE, in Salem.  Witnesses stated the vehicle left the roadway for an unknown reason before crashing through a fence and into a tree, seriously injuring the passenger.  The 20-year-old driver from Salem, Corbin Rivera, and his 25-year-old passenger, Kelsey Theiss, of Salem, were both transported by medics to Salem Hospital for their injuries.

The multi-day investigation following the crash leads deputies to believe Rivera was “huffing” a common household product immediately before the collision.  The unlawful use of inhalants, commonly known as “huffing”, is known to have short term effects such as blacking out, dizziness, confusion, lack of coordination, and in extreme cases  it can cause sudden death.

On March 29, 2019 investigators arrested Rivera at his residence and lodged him at Marion Count…
