Five Arrested In Stolen Vehicle (Photo) - 11/13/19

On November 12, 2019, Beaverton Police officers arrested 19-year-old Jamal Osman (resides in Auburn, Washington), 19-year-old Kassim Ahmed (resides in Seattle, Washington), and three juveniles ages 17, 15 and 14.  All five suspects had been committing multiple crimes in Washington County.

 

At 1:52 a.m. on November 12th, Beaverton Police officers were called to Winco Foods (3025 SW Cedar Hills Blvd) after suspects stole beer and left in a black Audi.  Officers located the vehicle on Hwy 217 and the driver eluded officers.  Officers chose not to pursue the vehicle for public safety concerns.   

 

At 11:51 a.m., Beaverton Police officers responded to Costco (15901 SW Jenkins Rd) regarding a victim who had her purse stolen.  The victim had her purse forcibly removed from her hands as she sat in her vehicle.  The suspects used the same black Audi from the Winco theft. 

 

At 11:59 a.m. Beaverton Police detectives spotted the suspect vehicle which pulled into the Beaverton Town Square Fred Meyers’ parking lot.  The vehicle parked in a manner and location which led officers to believe the suspects were going to commit additional crimes.  Three occupants were taken into custody from within the vehicle and two additional suspects were taken into custody inside Fred Meyer.  

 

Beaverton officers learned the vehicle had been stolen at gunpoint in Tukwila Washington on November 10th.  A black replica firearm was found in the vehicle.  These same suspects, using the same vehicle, are believed to have committed Harassment and Unlawful Entry into a Motor Vehicle in Tigard, a robbery in Tualatin, and Vehicle Prowl in the Second Degree and Theft from a Vehicle in the Second Degree in Vancouver.

 

We are working with our community partners in Tigard, Tualatin, Tukwila and Vancouver to assist in their investigations. All five occupants were charged with Robbery in the Second Degree, Identity Theft and Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card for the crimes that occurred in Beaverton. Mr. Osman was additionally charged with Possession of a Stolen Vehicle and Unlawful Use of a Motor Vehicle. Addition charges may be filed as we continue to investigate.

Distracted Driving Safety Campaign - 11/06/19

The Beaverton Police Department is participating in a yearlong Distracted Driving Traffic Safety Campaign. The focus of this campaign is to reduce distracted driving and make Beaverton roadways safer.   

 

Officers will be out on targeted patrols for distracted drivers during the month of November. This High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) detail will be paid for by grant funds from Oregon Impact and Oregon Department Of Transportation. 

 

Distracted driving is dangerous, claiming 3,166 lives in 2017 alone. Although there are many distractions in a vehicle, texting is the most alarming distraction.  Sending or reading a text takes your eyes of the road for an average of five seconds.  At 55 mph, that’s like driving the length of a football field with your eyes closed. 

 

Beaverton Police Department is dedicated to making our roadways safer. Please eliminate driving distractions and remember, if U Drive and U Text U Pay.

The Beaverton Police Department is participating in a yearlong National Traffic Safety Campaign again in 2019. The focus of this campaign is taking impaired drivers off our streets, keeping Beaverton a safe city to travel and live.


Officers were out on targeted patrols for impaired drivers during the month of October and made 40 DUII arrests. During the month of December, officers will continue their efforts to take impaired drivers off the streets of our no refusal city. This High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) detail was paid for by grant funds from Oregon Impact and ODOT. Out of the 40 arrests, 10 people refused to take a breath test and a warrant for a blood draw was granted. Out of the people who were arrested for an alcohol related DUII and provided a breath sample, the average blood alcohol content (BAC) in their blood was .16%.


The highest BAC was .46% and the lowest BAC was .00%. 11 People had a BAC of .16% or higher. Of those 11 drivers, 6 had a BAC of .24% or higher.


Drunk driving, impaired driving or buzzed driving all have the potential to claim lives. The men and women of the Beaverton Police Department ask you to please use a designated driver or find another sober ride home.
