Newport Police had a pretty fast paced evening Tuesday night. It started out with a report of a burglary in progress at 237 NW 8th. Caller said burglars were inside an apartment there. Police got one suspect outside, a female. Then they went in and nabbed a second – a male.
Just as they were wrapping up that incident the 9-1-1 dispatchers said there were men in battle fatigues firing guns at a house on North Deer Drive, up in the Agate Beach area – east side of 101. When police got there they met with the couple in the home who told them that there were three men in camo outside and at least one gunshot was heard. They said they confronted the three who immediately apologized for disturbing them, then disappeared into the night. As of midnight, police were still looking for them.
Anyone who may know who these characters are should call Newport Police at 541-265-3348.
