PRINEVILLE, OR -- A Prineville man is under arrest, accused of an armed carjacking early Friday morning, and police say a second suspect is still at large. The Crook County Sheriff's Office believes Dominic Isherwood and Michael Shrauger, both of Prineville, threatened a man and woman at about 6 a.m., Friday. The two men reportedly had a gun when they allegedly ordered the couple out of their car on Barnes Butte Road, just north of Prineville, and took their cell phones.
"They were able to get to a phone and call the sheriff's office, and within a few minutes we were there, taking a report," says CCSO Sgt. James Savage. An Oregon State Police Trooper located the victim's vehicle in Grasshopper Village, Friday afternoon. The Central Oregon Emergency Response Team searched the apartment, but neither of the suspects were found at that time.
At approximately 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Redmond Police pulled over a vehicle for a minor traffic violation. Isherwood was identified as one of the occupants of that car and was subsequently arrested.
Although Isherwood has been charged with first degree robbery, Michael Shrauger is still at large. Sgt. Savage warns he should be considered armed and dangerous. "Anyone who comes in contact with him should call 9-1-1 and do not approach him," Savage says. Anyone with information on Shrauger's whereabouts is asked to contact CCSO at 541-447-6398.
