At about 6:52 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 7, a man entered the Alberston's Pharmacy on SW Boones Ferry Rd. in Wilsonville. The suspect produced a handgun and demanded drugs from behind the counter, then fled the store. Wilsonville Police officers responded and arrested the suspect on multiple robbery counts.

Responding Wilsonville officers immediately recognized that the details matched two previous robberies -- one on November 29 and the other on December 30.

Officers had spent countless hours following up on tips and clues from the previous two robberies and were ready to track the suspect as soon as they realized he was the allegedly the robbery suspect they were looking for.

Clues gathered from the earlier robberies and clues from tonight's (Jan. 8) incident were used to track the man to the Madison Boulder Creek Apartments in Wilsonville.

Officers surrounded the suspect's apartment. With the assistance of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and the Canby Police, Wilsonville Police officers called suspect Michael Laseur, 33, out of the apartment. He was taken into custody with no further incident.

Mr. Laseur was booked into the Clackamas County Jail on three counts of Robbery I. His full booking info is here.

Three Clackamas County cities -- Damascus, Happy Valley, and Wilsonville -- contract with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office to provide municipal police services.
