Trespass Call Results in Temporary Road Closure (Photo) - 09/10/19

On September 10th, 2019 at approximately 10:30 am, deputies conducted a traffic stop on a 1996 Toyota pickup on Wheatland Rd N near Parkmeadow Lane N in Keizer.  The vehicle was being driven by a male who was reported to have been trespassing on a property in the 14000 block of French Prairie Road NE a few hours earlier.  Following the original trespass call, deputies learned the male had previously been arrested for trespassing at that same location and had violated his release agreement by returning to the residence.  As deputies attempted to get the driver to exit his vehicle he was not cooperative and refused to exit the Toyota pickup. 

As a precaution, law enforcement officers closed Wheatland Road N near Parkmeadow Lane N to traffic while deputies negotiated with the male who was still refusing to exit the vehicle.  About one hour following the original traffic stop, the male finally agreed to step out of his vehicle and surrender peacefully. 

The driver has been identified as Joel Haskins, a 29-year-old Salem man.  He was taken into custody for violating his release agreement.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Keizer Police Department and the Salem Police Department for their assistance during this incident.
