Redmond Police Announce DUII Enforcement Results For February, Planned March Enforcement - 03/09/18

REDMOND, OR -- In February, the Redmond Police Department was hit hard by the flu and other illnesses which resulted in no DUII High Visibility Enforcement overtime patrols funded by grant funds being conducted. However, Redmond patrol officers working their normal shifts during February arrested thirteen (13) DUII drivers.

Now that nearly all of our staff are now well, Redmond Police will continue enhanced DUII patrols throughout the remaining month of March. The primary intent of these heighten patrols is to prevent deaths, injuries and property damage caused by DUII drivers by removing them from the road. Redmond Police Department officers are trained to look for signs of impairment beyond just alcohol, as many other substances, legal or illegal, can impair a person's ability to operate a vehicle.

The officers of your Redmond Police Department are committed to making Redmond the safest community in Oregon. Preventing, locating and arresting DUII drivers is one of many ways they are working to accomplish this vision. Funding to support these enhanced DUII patrols is provided by a DUII High Visibility Enforcement Grant, awarded to the Redmond Police Department from the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Please report suspected DUII drivers by calling 541-693-6911 in Deschutes County or anywhere in Oregon by calling 800-24-DRUNK (800-243-7865).

Redmond, OR -- Today, February 22 at approximately 10:00 AM, Deschutes County 911 Dispatch received an emergency call from an expectant mother stating she was in labor and was at her residence in the 2300 block of SW Volcano Ave. Redmond Fire & Rescue was dispatched to the location, as was Redmond Police.

Officers Joe Casper and Michael Maloney arrived well before medics and observed there would be no-stopping the little bundle of joy from joining the world today. Officers were able to assist the mother and guided the child out. Officers tied off the umbilical cord wrapped the little boy in a towel and handed him to a very happy mother.

Redmond Fire & Rescue medics arrived after their response was delayed due to the snow and icy conditions, and transported mother and child to the hospital in Redmond. Later, Officer Casper and Officer Maloney met up with mother and her new son.

Born today at 10:08 AM, to mother Alba Cerda, was Joshua at 5 lbs 6 oz at 19 inches long.

Another DUII Driver Crashes Into Building; Building Damaged, Driver Arrested (Photo) - 02/21/18

Redmond, OR -- On early Sunday morning, February 18 at approximately 12:40 AM, Deschutes County 911 Dispatch received a phone call from a resident of Canyon Crest Apartments, 532 SW Rimrock Way, stating another resident in the complex had just crashed their vehicle into the building. This is the third such incident in a seven-day period.

After Officers arrived at Canyon Crest Apartments, an investigation revealed Mr. Tegan Clark, 27-years old and a Redmond-area resident, had driven to the location to drop off his children. After a short time visiting at another apartment, a dispute occurred, and Mr. Clark attempted to leave for the night but drove forward into the building instead of backing out of the parking space. The damage to the building appears minimal in a photo, but the damage is likely to require significant repair, according to Officers who were at the scene.

Mr. Clark was arrested for two counts of DUII-Alcohol, Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree, Reckless Driving, and five counts of Recklessly Endangering Another Person. He was taken to the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Adult Jail.

The Redmond Police Department desires to make Redmond the safest community in Oregon. Deterring and arresting DUII drivers is one way we are attempting to make this vision a reality. Driving while impaired endangers a large number of people, including any person which may be in the vehicle with the offending driver. Oregon law allows for a fine of up to $10,000.00 per minor child in the vehicle when the driver is arrested for DUII. Please do not drive after becoming impaired, and it should go without saying; PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE IMPAIRED WITH CHILDREN IN YOUR VEHICLE.

RPD Officers Locate Person Wanted For Several Attempt To Elude Incidents (Photo) - 02/20/18

Redmond, OR -- On Tuesday morning, February 20, Redmond Police Officers were dispatched to the Ridgemont Apartments, 2210 SW 19th Street, after receiving a report of suspicious activity by two people in the parking lot. The day before, Deschutes County Sheriff's Office (DCSO) Street Crimes Team was involved in an incident where a vehicle attempted to flee, rolled, and the driver was arrested after a brief foot chase. It was determined today's arrest was related to the incident the day before.

Upon arrival, Officers detained the male and female as an investigation into an attempted Unauthorized Entry into a Motor Vehicle was initiated. It was quickly determined the male was providing a fake name to law enforcement. Using available resources, the male was identified as Mr. Brandon Berrett, 32-years old and a Redmond area resident and he was arrested on an outstanding Parole Violation warrant. During the search incident to Berrett's arrest, a user amount of methamphetamine was found, as well as a digital scale, several clean baggies commonly used to package controlled substances, approximately $200 cash, and a collapsible baton. The possession of the baton is a crime due to Mr. Berrett being a convicted felon.

Before today's arrest, Mr. Berrett was also wanted for several Attempt to Elude incidents where Mr. Berrett sped away from DCSO Deputies attempting to perform a traffic stop on the vehicle he was driving. One of the most recent incidents occurred on February 2, 2018, on Fry Rear Road near Sisters. The pursuit was terminated by DCSO Deputies due to unsafe speeds and the poor driving by Mr. Berrett. It is anticipated the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office will review all their recent pursuits and make additional arrests of Mr. Berrett very soon.

Your Redmond Police Department never gives up attempting to locate suspects of crime when the suspect is known. We desire to hold accountable those who harm our community and refer criminal incidents to the District Attorney's Office for charging and formal accountability. We want to thank those who report suspicious activity, because that report could lead to any number of possibilities, including arrest of wanted people. The Redmond Police Department is available 24/7 by calling Deschutes County 911 Dispatch at our non-emergency number, 541-693-6911, or by calling 911 in an emergency.
