A little later, Bandon Police learned that Green was staying at a campsite at Bullards State Park in Bandon. Officers notified law enforcement agencies including the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and they all responded to the scene.
Coos County’s Emergency Response Team (SWAT) went to Bullards State Park and quickly had Green in handcuffs.
At the Coos County Jail, Lincoln County and Port Orford authorities questioned Green and he admitted to his involvement in both the Columbia Bank robbery in Waldport and the Rogue Credit Union robbery in Port Orford.
Back at Green’s camp site authorities located items connected to both bank robberies and those items were seized. Green was immediately loaded in to a vehicle and transported to the Lincoln County Jail in Newport and booked on charges of Robbery, Illegal Use of a Weapon, Theft, Reckless Endangering, Menacing, Coercion and being a Fugitive from another state. Bail: $1.5 Million.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office expresses their thanks to the multiple agencies involved in the apprehension of Green. They say the arrest was successful due to multi-agency collaboration including the Coos County Sheriff’s Office, Bandon Police Department, Brookings Police Department, Oregon State Police, the U.S. Marshals Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Green is expected to appear in Lincoln County Circuit Court for his first appearance on January 25th at 4:30pm.
