At 6:26 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 18, deputies contracted to the Wilsonville Police Department responded to a report of a stolen vehicle at Plaid Pantry in Wilsonville.

Deputies arrived at the scene. The victim told deputies that three juvenile males asked him for a ride from Eugene to Portland. He said when they reached Wilsonville, they stopped at the Plaid Pantry, and the victim went inside to buy some items.

When he came back, the three juvenile suspect males and the victim's vehicle -- a black 2007 Toyota Camry 4D -- had disappeared.

At approximately 11:39 a.m., an alert Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Patrol deputy spotted and attempted to stop the stolen vehicle.

Wilsonville Police and Sheriff's Office deputies pursued the vehicle, eventually end the pursuit as the stolen vehicle continued northbound on SW Boones Ferry Rd. into Tualatin. But then a citizen alerted Wilsonville Police, the Sheriff's Office, and Tualatin Police that the same stolen vehicle had crashed after trying to negotiate a turn at SW Boones Ferry Rd. and SW Blake St. in Tualatin at a high rate of speed.

Deputies responded to the crash scene, and quickly took one of the three juvenile suspects, a 16-year-old male, into custody. A second juvenile suspect, a 17-year-old male, was located by Tualatin Police officers hiding in a backyard of a nearby residence.

Authorities searched for the third juvenile suspect, but were unable to locate him. Police are seeking tips from the public.

The two arrested juvenile suspects were transported to Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Center and booked on numerous charges.


The Sheriff's Office is seeking the third suspect, a 17-year-old juvenile, in the Sept. 18 theft of the 2007 Toyota Camry 4D from the Wilsonville Plaid Pantry, as well as any additional information in this case. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Sheriff's Office Tip Line -- by phone at 503-723-4949 or by using the online email form. Please reference CCSO Case # 2017-24813.
