From January 14 through January 17, 2018 Lincoln City Police Officers have been investigating numerous thefts from vehicles, businesses, and residences, including the theft of emergency equipment from a North Lincoln Fire and Rescue command vehicle.
On Wednesday, Grand Ronde Tribal Police contacted a vehicle at the Seaway Market in connection with a shots fired call that originated in the Tillamook County section of Hwy 18. Arrested from the vehicle were Tracy Davis, Devyn Hopkins, and Ethan Parkin, who were all lodged at the Polk County Jail.
Grand Ronde Tribal Police served a search warrant on the vehicle and recovered numerous items taken in car burlaries and mail thefts from the Lincoln City area. After being contacted by the Grand Ronde Tribal Police, Lincoln City Police Officer Tim Delugach responded to assist with the search warrant. Items recovered from the vehicle included a radio, Automatic External Defibrillator (AED), and equipment taken from North Lincoln Fire and Rescue, tools taken from two different vehicles in the Taft and Oceanlake areas of town. All recovered items were returned to their owners, but numerous items are still missing.
The thefts occurred from late night Sunday January 14th to the morning of Wednesday January 17th. Other items were found in the vehicle that are not currently tied to any reported thefts.
If you have experienced a theft during this time frame, or have any information on the cases mentioned, please contact Officer Delugach or the Lincoln City Police Department at 541 994-3636.
We would like to remind everyone to lock vehicle and building doors, and don’t leave valuables in vehicles. LCPD is grateful for the superb inter-agency support from Grand Ronde Tribal Police and their help in recovering the stolen items.
