LA PINE, OR -- Deschutes County investigators are searching for the man they say tried to rob the La Pine Dairy Queen, at about 5 p.m. Monday. The suspect was described as a white male, about 5’10” and 160 pounds with short, dark hair, a trimmed beard and dark framed glasses. He was wearing a brown sweatshirt and blue jeans and left the restaurant in a silver Chevy Traverse LS with Oregon plates.

 

Deputies say he demanded the cashier open the register but was refused, and he left. He acted as if he had a weapon, but none was seen.


TUESDAY P.M. UPDATE: The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office says a suspect is in custody, in connection with Monday’s attempted robbery, thanks to the public’s help. Based on tips received through social media, investigators identified the suspect as 31-year-old Jason Reed, of Newberg. He was arrested by Salem Police, Tuesday morning.
