BEND, OR -- Bend Police say they've arrested a Salem man responsible for an intricate scheme that defrauded a local business. 


Officers arrested 31-year-old Jason Goulet, Tuesday morning, following a brief car chase and extensive search. The operation led to a brief lock-out of Silver rail Elementary due to reports he may have a gun. Goulet was taken in to custody at the park near the school and no gun was found.


Investigators say Goulet purchased three chainsaws from a local store, using a realistic-looking cashier’s check from a fake bank. He went so far as to use a re-routed phone number so he could take calls for "APX Commercial Bank." He then sold the chainsaws on Craigslist for $2,500. 


Anyone with information regarding Goulet's activities, APX Bank, or the location of those chainsaws is asked to call Bend PD. The three Stihl chainsaws are:

  • Stihl MS661rcm               serial number #184499316
  • Stihl MS461R28              serial number #184596769
  • Stihl MS461R28              serial number #184159922
