Armed Robbery Suspects Arrested


On September 19, 2023 Corvallis Police Detectives arrested 19-year-old Nathan Jefferson and 18-year-old Sophia Odell of Portland, Oregon with the assistance of the East Metro SWAT Team during an operation in Portland, OR. In April 2023, four male suspects and a female suspect arrived at a residence in Corvallis, OR, forced a male victim into a chair, pistol whipped the male while threatening him, held the male at gunpoint while the suspects moved throughout the house and stole items, and then smashed a vase over the males head. The suspects left the residence in the victim’s vehicle which was later recovered in Portland, OR.


Corvallis Police investigated the incident and were able to identify Mr. Jefferson and Ms. Odell as being two of the suspects involved. Corvallis Police and the East Metro SWAT Team executed a search warrant on their apartment and located evidence inside the apartment belonging to the victim. Mr. Jefferson and Ms. Odell were taken into custody and lodged at the Benton County Correctional Facility on charges of Robbery in the First Degree, Burglary in the First Degree, Aggravated Theft in the First Degree, Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle, and Coercion. The investigation is still ongoing to identify the other suspects involved.
