Masked burglar captured after confrontation with delivery driver (Photo) - 03/16/15
On March 16, 2015, at about 0458 HRS, OCPD received a call of a commercial burglary in progress at Coffee Rush, 900 Main St., Oregon City. The R/P was a delivery driver for the business. When he entered the business for his delivery he was unexpectedly met inside the business by 51-year-old, Mr. Anthony Brown who was wearing a ski mask at the time. Mr. Brown pushed the informant down as he exited the business and fled the scene. OCPD officers were nearby and arrived within a minute of being dispatched. CCSO and Gladstone PD responded to assist. The perimeter officers contained the suspect and located him about 5 minutes later along the steep embankment between Singer Hill and the McLoughlin house. Mr. Brown was taken into custody at about 0517 HRS. Mr. Brown was found in possession of stolen property from Coffee Rush on his person. Other evidence of the burglary was located nearby. Mr. Brown was lodged at CCJ for Robbery III - $15,000 bail, Burglary II - $15,000 bail, Theft II - $7,500 bail, and a no bail Parole Violation for Burglary II out of Multnomah County.
