News Release: Woodburn Police Arrest Theft Suspects - 04/04/21

Sunday, April 4, 2021 – Woodburn, OR - On Saturday, April 3, at about 5:30pm, Woodburn Police Officers responded to the report of a theft that had just occurred at Woodburn Skate Park, 200 Oak Street, Woodburn, OR 97071. The caller reported two males had just stolen an iPhone, AirPods, money and other small items that were inside a backpack. Officers were able to identify the suspects, 19-year-old Dakota Ovalle and a 16-year-old juvenile, who were known to the victims.

The suspects were located and contacted near the 300 Block of N Settlemier Avenue where they ran from police and were eventually detained. During the investigation, officers recovered a glock replica airsoft gun that the juvenile arrestee had concealed in a fanny pack during the theft.

The two suspects were arrested for: Theft in the First Degree, Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree. The juvenile suspect had an additional charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance – Alprazolam (Xanax). 

WPD urges youth to understand that the realistic airsoft gun could have easily been mistaken as a real firearm, and also urges parents to be aware of their children’s activities.
