BEND, OR -- A Bend man remains in jail after a weekend spree that led to the temporary closure of Walmart. Police say late Saturday night, 33-year-old Jared Lake forced his way into a man’s car as he left Shari’s on the north end of town. The driver complied with his demands to be taken downtown, then called 911 after dropping him off. 


A short time later, a cab driver reported he was robbed at knife-point by a man he picked up from a downtown motel, later identified as Lake. The driver texted his dispatcher that he needed help and when police finally reached him, he said the suspect took an undisclosed amount of cash and got out of the cab at Walmart.


Lake allegedly then went into Walmart, took an airsoft gun off the shelf and used it to strike a shopper. After midnight, as officers arrived at the store, Lake allegedly hid in a maintenance area and broke water lines, causing substantial flooding. The store was immediately closed but reopened Sunday afternoon.

 

The suspect was arrested and faces a long list of charges, including Assault, Theft, Robbery and Menacing. Drugs and alcohol are believed to be factors in his alleged actions.
