CASE NUMBER:                      23-12062


Gresham, Ore.—At approximately 12:46p.m., Gresham Police officers responded to 900 block of NE 162nd Ave., on a report of a stolen 2020 Kia Sportage. While taking the report, officers learned from the vehicle owner, Brianna Walker, she only purchased the vehicle 3 days prior. Walker’s vehicle was taken sometime overnight. Surveillance cameras indicate it was likely taken shortly after 6:15a.m.

Brianna is hoping her vehicle is located quickly because she makes her living as a food delivery driver. The 4-door Kia Sportage is burnt copper in color and does not have plates on it. It had a temporary permit in the back window when taken. The vehicle may have a broken window as indicated by glass in the parking space.


Gresham Police recommends the use of an anti-theft car device such as a steering wheel lock to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of vehicle theft.
