Vance Arthur KinnerOn Wednesday, Dec. 17, 2014, Happy Valley Police arrested suspect Vance Arthur Kinner, 47, following an alleged home burglary on Monner Road in Happy Valley. This led to a second arrest, multiple charges for both suspects, and the recovery of stolen property in several area burglaries.

Kinner was contacted by a Happy Valley Police detective while the detective was investigating a suspicious vehicle in the Monner Road neighborhood -- an area that had experienced several recent burglaries.

The detective was contacted by a person from the local Neighborhood Watch program, who confirmed the vehicle was suspicious.

After contacting Mr. Kinner, Happy Valley Police discovered an unreported burglary to a home near where Mr. Kinner had been contacted. Evidence discovered at the scene of the burglary identified Mr. Kinner as the burglary suspect.

After Mr. Kinner's arrest, additional evidence tied Mr. Kinner to other burglaries on Monner Road over the previous weeks.

Suspect Tammy Lynne Hendon After additional investigation, police then identified a second, female suspect in the burglary cases. On Thursday, Jan. 1, 2015, Happy Valley Police arrested Tammy Lynne Hendon, 45.

Mr. Kinner and Ms. Hendon are the suspects in multiple burglaries in Happy Valley -- and were also found to be suspects in burglaries occurring in Portland and Gresham.

A large amount of stolen property has been recovered during this investigation. Police are currently identifying it for evidence and returning it to victims.

Kinner are currently lodged at the Clackamas County Jail pending prosecution on multiple charges that include burglary, identity theft, and drug possession.
