June 6, 2007

  • Dozens of law enforcement officers from a multitude of agencies joined ODOT staffers and other safety personnel in the apprehension and later investigation of a woman fleeing the Portland area after allegedly shooting her ex-boyfriend. The dramatic chase last week ended in downtown Redmond, as the woman left her car and shot herself after being surrounded by police. City police from Madras, Redmond, and Bend, together with Deschutes County Sheriff's deputies and Oregon State Police troopers were involved in the pursuit and crime scene investigation, which began in the early morning hours June 6, tying up Redmond roads until the early afternoon.
  • High school students apparently thought it was worth one last prank before graduation, stealing the large metal panther statue that has graced the entrance hall of Redmond High School. "007" was spray-painted on the pedestal, pointing the blame to outgoing seniors. No information has turned up in the crime since it occurred Memorial Day weekend.
  • Summer softball is big this year, filling Redmond playing fields past capacity and causing some interested teams to be turned away. Redmond Park and Recreation District officials signed up 20 teams this year, a record for adult recreational softball.
