Alpaca Ranch Vehicle Taken On Joyride During Spree

TERREBONNE, OR -- An allegedly intoxicated man is accused of going on a crime spree in Terrebonne Monday afternoon. It started just before 5 p.m., with a call to 911 about someone starting a fire in a shed that caused an explosion.

Another caller reported a man running around Ace Hardware with no shoes, rambling incoherently. And a third person called to report he jumped the fence into the Crescent Moon Alpaca Ranch. Christopher Valentin Van Wambeke Ward then allegedly stole a ranch vehicle, crashed through the fence, drove onto Highway 97 and back to the site of the shed fire, before deputies took him into custody.

The 35-year-old Terrebonne man faces six counts of Recklessly Endangering Another, three counts of first degree Criminal Mischief, two counts of Reckless Driving, and one count each of Driving Under the Influence and Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle.
