Reward Offered in Fatal Hit and Run - Crime Stoppers Featured Case #17-17 (Photo) - 05/19/17

The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help to solve a fatal hit and run crash.

On Friday May 5, 2017, at 4:33 a.m., Portland East Precinct responded to the report that a pedestrian was hit by a driver on Southeast 82nd Avenue, just south of Flavel Street and that the involved driver left the scene.

Officers and medical personnel arrived in the area and found 45-year-old Theodore Cornelius Jones lying on the sidewalk, suffering from traumatic injuries. Jones was transported by ambulance to a Portland hospital for treatment but did not survive his injuries.

Video footage of the incident indicates that the suspect driver was in a smaller, dark-colored sedan and continued to drive southbound on 82nd Avenue after striking the pedestrian. The vehicle likely would have sustained damage to the hood and windshield.

Video of the crash is available for viewing and download at https://youtu.be/q-JSGe8AMfY

Crime Stoppers Featured Case #17-15 - River Road Fire (Photo) - 05/16/17

Portland Fire & Rescue, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help to develop leads in a fire investigation that destroyed a North Portland warehouse.

On May 14, 2017 at 9:57 p.m., multiple callers to 9-1-1 reported a large fire under the Fremont Bridge. Portland Fire & Rescue responded to 1300 North River Road and reported a significant amount of fire from a large warehouse.

A second alarm was called at 10:04 p.m. and brought additional resources to manage the large and complex incident. Two fire boats were also dispatched because the building is built partially over the Willamette River on pier-style wood pilings.

The fire became even larger due to the contents of the warehouse -- items including carpet pad and other synthetic products that burn easily. This prompted incident commanders to call for a third alarm at 12:55 a.m.

Crews worked throughout the morning to prevent heat and flames from damaging neighboring buildings. There were no injuries and investigators are still working to find the cause. No damage estimates have been determined.

Investigators believe this fire started below the structure in the wood pilings/pier that supports the structure. There have been reports of activity in this area including warming and cooking fires. Investigators would like any specific information anyone may have regarding activity on the date or the days just the fire.
