News Release
If You See Something Say Something (Photo) - 09/12/20

On September 11th, 2020, just after 2:00 p.m. 53 year-old Sammy Piatt was arrested by the Oregon City Police Department after he lit a pile of leaves on fire near the Clackamas County Community Solutions building located at 112 11th St. in Oregon City, Oregon.

The investigation started after a Clackamas County Probation officer observed smoke coming from the area of the steps to the Community Solutions building and Mr. Piatt standing near the fire.  One probation officer detained Mr. Piatt and another probation officer used a fire extinguisher to quickly extinguish the fire.  The fire was approximately ten feet from the building and did not result in any damage to the building. 

Mr. Piatt admitted to lighting the leaves on fire.  He was arrested without incident for Arson II and on a probation violation.  He is currently lodged at the Clackamas County Jail and is transient. 

We want to emphasize the importance of; if you see something, say something.  If you see something suspicious please call 911 or non-emergency dispatch.

Reference OCPD Case # 20-019510
