Released by: Sgt. Jayson Janes, Public Information Officer

Date: January 10, 2021

Driver: Glen James Carroll, 47 year old male, Redmond

Charges: Attempt to Elude Felony, Attempt to Elude Misdemeanor, Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine, Reckless Driving, and Driving while Suspended Misdemeanor.

Vehicle: 2001 Volvo, black, four door.

 

On Saturday January 9, 2021, at approximately 8:53 AM, a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Deputy attempted a traffic stop in the area of NW 6th street and NW Quince Avenue in Redmond.  The vehicle, a black 2001 Volvo 4door, was being stopped for several traffic violations to include speeding, fail to use turn signal and expired registration. 

As the deputy initiated the stop, the Volvo took off westbound on NW Quince Avenue.  The vehicle made its way back to Highway 97 from NW Pershall Way, and started to drive southbound through Redmond on Highway 97.

 Redmond Police Officers were able to deploy spike strips in the area of Highway 97 and Evergreen Avenue.  The driver drove over the spike strips with the rear passenger side tire.  The Volvo continued southbound through Redmond.  

After leaving the city limits, the driver was driving approximately 100 MPH as the tire deflated.  The car slowed down and the tire eventually came off.  The driver then left the highway on the east side of Highway 97 across from Tomahawk Avenue, taking a BLM road.  It crossed the railroad tracks and started driving in a northeast direction through BLM land.  The driver eventually stopped and got out of the car and ran.  The Deputy was able to take him into custody after a short foot pursuit.  

The driver was identified as Glen James Carroll, 47 yo male from Redmond.  When Carroll was arrested, he was in possession of approximately one ounce of suspected methamphetamine.  There was minimal traffic on the roadways during the pursuit.  Carroll was cited and released at the scene for the above mentioned charges.

The Sheriffs Office would like to thank the Redmond Police Department for their assistance.

Class Prepares Volunteers to Mentor Children of Incarcerated Parents - 01/04/21

Central Oregon Partnerships for Youth (COPY), a program of the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, is offering a virtual class to prepare volunteers to become mentors for children with an incarcerated parent.

After initial training and comprehensive background checks, volunteers are matched with a child in Bend, Redmond, Sisters or LaPine that share similar interests and activities and commit to spending a few hours a week together for a minimum of one year. This time is often spent on outside activities, exploring the community, doing art or craft projects, or simply hanging out and talking.

On Saturday, January 16, COPY will offer a virtual orientation/training class. This 3½-hour class covers program policies, how to establish a mentor relationship, the impact incarceration has on families, communication skills, and safety and best practices for mentoring in a COVID-19 world. There is no cost to attend, but advanced registration is required.

For additional details please call 541-388-6651 or email COPY@deschutes.org Additional program information is available at the Sheriff’s Office web site at www.sheriff.deschutes.org/copy.

Stuck motorist tescued north of Paulina Lake (Photo) - 12/31/20

Released by:      Dep. Shane Zook, Assistant Search And Rescue Coordinator

Occurred:           12/30/2020     3:08 PM 

Location:            Forest Service road, north of Paulina Lake

Rescued:           Thompson, Paul, Bend, OR, 37 yo male

                         Thompson's 13 yo daughter

 


           
  NARRATIVE:

On 12/30/20 at about 1508 hours, Deschutes County Dispatch received a 911 call from a male stating that his adult son, Mr. Paul Thompson, and Thompson's 13 year old daughter, were stuck in a vehicle somewhere near Paulina Lake.  The caller stated that the two individuals had been stuck since the evening of 12/29/20.  It was initially unknown what road the vehicle was stuck on, however, another family member had used a phone application to locate the 13 year old female's phone at 9:00 AM, which showed her to be on the north side of Paulina Lake.  This turned out to be very helpful because when a Special Services deputy attempted to ping the individuals cell phone, the phone was either turned off, or the battery had gone dead.

One Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Deputy and three Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue volunteers responded to assist.  The DCSO SAR volunteers travelled the majority of the way to the stuck subjects with a 4x4 pickup, then deployed the tracked DCSO SAR ARGO ATV.  At about 5:30 PM the volunteers had travelled about 5.5 miles in the ARGO ATV and arrived at the location where Thompson, his daughter, and their two dogs were waiting with their stuck vehicle.  Both subjects and their two dogs were unharmed and were provided with a ride out to the SAR pickup, and then given a ride to their awaiting family on China Hat Road.  DCSO resources returned to quarters by 7:00 PM. 

The DCSO would like to remind the public to use caution when traveling on forest roads this time of year due to snowpack. Road conditions vary significantly and roads can quickly become impassable.  Further, if you are traversing in these conditions be sure to bring appropriate vehicles, equipment, lighting, clothing, food, water, navigation and communication devices.

Wanted Subjects Arrested After Report of Shooting East of Redmond, Pursuit, and Crash (Photo) - 12/22/20

####UPDATE####

Additional information and charges 

Released by: Sergeant Jayson Janes

Date: December 22, 2020

 

Thomas David Cross

Charges: Assault II, Felon in Possession of a Weapon, Robbery I, Menacing, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, Theft II.

Victim: 27 year old male, Redmond, owner of Ford Ranger

Victim: 33 year old female, Redmond, reporting person

Detectives learned during their investigation on December 21, 2020 that Thomas Cross stole the Ford Ranger and used a handgun during the theft of the vehicle. The vehicle owner’s girlfriend later observed Cross and Campbell in the vehicle and believed something was wrong due to her boyfriend not being inside. She used her vehicle in an attempt to block the truck on a dirt road. She reported that Cross shot at her after she blocked him in. After Cross and Campbell fled the area she called 911 to report the incident.  

During the subsequent lengthy investigation, detectives determined Campbell had unlawfully entered an occupied home in the 4000 block of NE Vaughn.  Campbell then pointed a firearm at the homeowner inside the residence, but the homeowner was able to get away and lock herself and her children inside a bathroom. Campbell then left the residence and attempted to steal a vehicle in the driveway.  Campbell was located inside the vehicle by deputies and was taken into custody without incident.  

During a search of the area deputies located two firearms. One of the firearms had been reported stolen out of the City of Redmond.

Both subjects were transferred over to detectives with the Tri-County Major Incident Team.

Cross was later transported to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Jail where he was lodged on the above mentioned charges.

This case is being reviewed by the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office, and further charges on Campbell are likely.
