The Redmond Police Department wants to encourage the public to avoid railroad tracks or railroad right of ways.  These areas are very hazardous and crossings should only be accomplished at designated crossings.  The public should also be aware it is a violation of Oregon Revised Statutes (Criminal Trespass in the First Degree) to enter or remain unlawfully upon railroad yards, tracks, bridges, or rights of way.

 

There is no more information that can be released at this time.
