Deputy David Hawley with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office recently investigated a theft complaint located near the 4000 block of N Highway 101 in Lincoln Beach, OR.
Deputy Hawley’s investigation revealed that Jason S. Dimicelli, 40 years of age, from Lincoln City, allegedly rented out a vacation property without the owner’s permission. Further investigation revealed that Dimicelli was allegedly conducting similar illegal activity in other parts of western Oregon.
Dimicelli was tracked down by law enforcement in another county and was eventually transported to the Lincoln County Jail in Newport. Dimicelli is currently being held on $855,000 bail.
Deputies say Jason S. Dimicelli has been linked to unlawfully renting out multiple residential properties in three separate counties including Lincoln, Clatsop and Yamhill counties. If anyone knows anyone who has been victimized by a rental scam with Dimmicelli acting as the landlord and/or property manager, they should contact their local police agency and file a report.
