 On October 15, 2016, at approximately 0553 hours officers with the Redmond Police Department responded to the 1400 block of SW 33rd St., Redmond, for a report of two people breaking into vehicles. Officers searched the area and were unable to locate the people breaking into vehicles.

   At approximately 0635 hours officers responded to the area of SW 31st St. and SW Obsidian Lane for a report of two people breaking into vehicles. At approximately 0639 hours officers located three males, Jason McCain, Trevon Nakano, and a 17-year-old male juvenile, in the area of SW 31st St. and SW Pumice Ave. The three males were linked to breaking into multiple vehicles, so far over 20 vehicles, in the southwest area of Redmond. Most of these vehicles were unlocked, and forced entry was made on a few of them. Officers located stolen property in their possession.

   Jason McCain and Trevon Nakano were transported and lodged at the Deschutes County Jail, where they both were lodged on the following crimes: Unlawful Entry into a Motor Vehicle (UEMV) x 10, Theft II, and Theft III. Their bail amounts were $56,000 apiece. The male juvenile was transported and lodged at the Deschutes County Juvenile Detention Center for the following crimes: PCS-Oxycodone, UEMV x 10, Theft II, and Theft III.

   The Redmond Police Department currently has property which we believe belongs to victims of other vehicle break-ins and are asking for community members to check their vehicles to see if they have been victims of theft. If you are a victim of theft from your vehicle, please report this incident to us through the non-emergency dispatch number at (541) 693-6911.

   At the Redmond Police Department, we strive to build long-lasting relationships with our community members to make Redmond the safest community in Oregon. One method to prevent crime is to educate prevention techniques to the public. In an attempt to prevent people living in, and visiting our community from being victims of vehicle break-ins we have three safety tips we would like to share:

Tip #1- Lock and secure your vehicles. Please lock your vehicle, roll all windows up, and make sure there is no access to the inside of your vehicle.

Tip #2- Remove and/or secure all valuable items from your vehicle. Please don’t leave valuable items in plain view. If you can’t take your property from your vehicle, then keep all valuable items locked, secured, and out of plain view within your vehicle.

Tip #3- Leave your vehicle in an open, well-lit location.
