REDMOND, OR -- A Redmond couple was arrested Friday night, following a standoff with police. An officer took 37-year-old Krystaal Bulkley into custody outside her home on Southwest Canyon Drive. She’s accused of I-D theft and forgery, as part of an ongoing investigation.
During her arrest, 29-year-old Charles Mansfield ran into the house; officers quickly learned he had outstanding warrants, was known to be violent toward law enforcement and had access to a loaded shotgun. When he refused to come out, SWAT responded and Redmond Police deployed a drone and two K9 units. Mansfield surrendered a short time later.
A subsequent search of the home uncovered evidence of heroin and meth manufacturing and sales, along with the loaded shotgun. Bulkley is charged with Identity theft, Forgery, Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card, Hindering Prosecution and Possession, Manufacture and Delivery of meth and heroin. Mansfield also faces various drug charges, as well as a parole violation.
Police report that as they were preparing to leave the scene, several citizens clapped, cheered and expressed appreciation for resolving "an ongoing problem in their neighborhood." The investigation was aided by the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement (CODE) Team.
