duii enforcement patrols - 01/07/19

The Roseburg Police Department participated in focused DUII enforcement patrols throughout December thanks to a grant obtained from the Oregon Department of Transportation and Oregon Impact.  During the month of December and the New Year holiday the Roseburg Police Department arrested 8 people for suspicion of driving a vehicle while impaired by alcohol, drugs or a combination of the two.  Grants such as this one provide our Officers with the ability to focus on problems they wouldn't necessarily be able to focus on during normal patrol.

Dutch Brother's Robbery - 12/19/18

On December 18th, 2018 just after 7:15 P.M., Officers responded to the report of a robbery that just occurred at the Dutch Brothers coffee stand on Diamond Lake Boulevard in Roseburg.  It was reported a male suspect who was wearing a mask, displayed a firearm and demanded cash from an employee.  The employee cooperated with the suspect's demands, and the suspect was last seen running away, northbound on Fulton Street.

A Roseburg Police K9 attempted to track the suspect's path from the scene, but ultimately didn't locate him.  Later in the evening a 17 year old Roseburg male was developed as a potential suspect and he was later contacted at his residence.  During that follow up investigation, the 17 year old male was arrested for the robbery and lodged at the Douglas County Juvenile Detention Center.
