Results from Sex Offender Compliance Checks - 02/27/24

Police officers from Tigard and Sherwood recently joined regional partners to conduct sex offender compliance checks across their cities, and the results from the effort are now available.

Held periodically and led by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Apprehension Team (CAT), the purpose behind these checks is for an officer and/or deputy to personally visit the address provided by a registered sex offender to verify that he or she does, in fact, live at the address they have provided to law enforcement. 

Compliance checks were held on Wednesday, February 20th, in Tigard and Sherwood, with the help of deputies from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. The results are as follows:

Of the 134 registered sex offenders living in Tigard as of 2/20/24, checks were conducted on 80 people. 50 of them were verified to be in compliance, meaning investigators confirmed more likely than not that the person is currently living at their reported address. Another 27 were unverified, which may be due to no answer at the door or conflicting information. 3 were verified to not be in compliance and were no longer living at their reported address. Their names and information have been documented for future follow-up.

Of the 37 registered sex offenders living in Sherwood as of 2/20/24, checks were conducted on 33 people. 21 of them were verified to be in compliance, 12 were unverified and 0 were verified to not be in compliance.

These periodic efforts to follow up on information provided by registered sex offenders is a priority in Washington County, where CAT has a goal to verify such information at least on an annual basis. The Tigard and Sherwood Police Departments support this important work and hope to conduct future checks on a more frequent basis.

You can find more information on certain sex offenders who are considered high risk at the Oregon State Police Sex Offender Registry here: https://sexoffenders.oregon.gov/

Man Arrested, Linked to 50-100+ Storage Unit Burglaries (Photo) - 02/14/24

A long investigation led to the arrest of a man who is linked to at least 50 but likely 100+ storage unit burglaries.

On February 7th, 2024, the Tigard Police Department’s Commercial Crimes Unit (CCU) performed a surveillance mission to apprehend a serial burglar, Timothy Counsil, age 57. Investigators believe Mr. Counsil had been burglarizing storage unit facilities throughout the City of Tigard since 2022. At roughly 10:00 PM, Tigard Detectives found Mr. Counsil in a storage facility near the 7000 block of SW McEwan Road within the city limits of Tualatin.  With the help of Tualatin Police officers, he was safely arrested. He was charged with several counts of burglary and was taken to the Washington County Jail. 

Tigard Detectives then executed a search warrant for the storage units Mr. Counsil personally rented, and discovered the units were full of stolen items, including kitchen appliances, music equipment, sporting equipment, power tools and much more. Some of this stolen property has already been linked to previously reported burglaries. These items were seized pursuant to the search warrant and detectives will be working to contact victims. 

Tigard Detectives executed another search warrant on Friday, February 10th, 2024, for two additional storage units. Again, they discovered the units were full of stolen property.

Detectives are still investigating the numerous burglaries believed to be committed by Mr. Counsil and anticipate more charges to be filed in the coming weeks.  We’d like to thank our Crime Analyst for her help in piecing together these cases, and the Tualatin Police Department for assistance in taking Mr. Counsil into custody.

(NEWSROOMS: A CCU Detective is available for interviews; please contact the PIO to schedule. Additionally, a short b-roll clip of recovered stolen property will be available by 2pm today. Please contact the PIO for the link.)
