Late Wednesday night (Nov. 28, 2018), deputies contracted to Wilsonville Police conducted a traffic stop in the 29000 block of SW Parkway Court that led to the arrest of Skylar Tweedle, 24, and his wife, Jessica Tweedle. The Tweedles had been sought in connection to numerous crimes in the Wilsonville area -- including burglary from garage break-ins, package thefts, and vehicle break-ins.
