Suspect collage: case # 14-32155In the late morning hours on Monday, Nov. 24, two men entered two different Wilsonville businesses -- the 76 Station located at 30085 SW Parkway Avenue and the Plaid Pantry located at 29890 SW Town Center Loop West -- and stole large quantities of tobacco products.

In each case, the victim business had just received a large shipment of products for sale, but had not yet placed the items into their inventory. In each case, the store employees were briefly distracted and the men exited with the stolen items.

The men were seen leaving one of the crime scenes in a dark-colored single-cab pickup truck with a matching canopy.

Suspect descriptions (surveillance photos are linked above):

 Suspect 1: Male, possibly white or Hispanic, 5'8" tall, 250 pounds, bald head, about 40 years of age.

 Suspect 2: Male, African American, 5'10" tall, 300 pounds, short hair, mustache, 40-50 years of age.

The witness observations and actions of the suspects indicate that this was a planned theft and there may be other victim businesses.


Again, anyone with information on the suspicious male or associated truck is urged to contact our Tip Line -- by phone at (503) 723-4949 or by using the online email form. Please reference Wilsonville Police Case # 14-32155
