REDMOND, OR -- Redmond Police have released more information on Wednesday's string of car break-ins. Officers first responded to the 2500 block of NW Cedar just after midnight, Wednesday morning, after a resident reported a suspicious person on the front porch of a house. About 10 minutes later, just a couple of blocks away, at least three kids were chased off after multiple car alarms sounded.
After multiple search efforts, one with a K-9 unit, five teens were arrested, ranging from 13- to 19-years-old. They face a variety of charges, including violating curfew, theft, unlawful possession of marijuana and unlawful entry into a motor vehicle.
The only adult, 19-year-old Ian Davies, is also charged with theft of a firearm.
Investigators discovered stolen property from dozens of victims, inside a tent on Cedar avenue. They credit tips from the public for helping track down and return property to some of the victims.
Over 100 items are still in police custody. Investigators hope victims will identify property so it can be returned.
