Multiple overnight thefts in McMinnville (Photo) - 07/21/21


Overnight and in the early morning hours of 7/20/21, numerous thefts from motor vehicles, and the actual theft of 2 motor vehicles occurred.   The first stolen vehicle was abandoned by the suspects when the alarm activated as they were driving away.  The second stolen vehicle, a gray 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV with Oregon plate 004MWG, has been recovered in Portland.  In addition to these stolen vehicles, numerous vehicles were entered and had items stolen from within.   The thefts appear to have been concentrated in two parts of McMinnville, the residential neighborhood north of Doran Drive in NE McMinnville, and the residential neighborhoods south of Baker Creek Road and east of Hill Road, as displayed in the two attached maps.  We are asking anyone that lives in the areas displayed in the two maps, that may have captured Ring, Nest, or similar photo or video footage of suspicious persons or vehicles in the early morning hours of 7/20/21, from about midnight to 6:00 am, to please contact us.  In addition, we ask that anyone that discovers that their vehicle was entered, whether items were stolen or not, please contact us to report the information.
