Barefoot and Bloody Suspect Arrested on Oregon Coast

A man in Oregon is facing many charges after he was found with bloodied hands in an area where several businesses and homes were damaged.

On November 28, the authorities in Newport were notified about suspected vandalism including broken windows, planters, street signs, and other damage done to businesses and residences in an area of the city.

Officers with the Newport Police Department used the identifying information they were given from bystanders, and they went out to try to locate the suspect.

The police noted that there were several homes and business buildings that appeared to have been vandalized. They reported that broken glass was lying around the sites, and items on the property were also destroyed.

While patrolling the neighborhood, the officers came across a man who was not wearing shoes. They reported that his hands were covered in blood. He also appeared to fit the description they were given of the suspect. They approached the man, and they purported that he was the person they were looking for.

The 28-year-old was taken into custody and booked into the Lincoln County Jail. Charges of two counts of first-degree burglary, two counts of burglary, one count of criminal trespass, two counts of first-degree criminal mischief, nine counts of second-degree criminal mischief, four counts of third-degree criminal mischief, one count of third-degree theft, and disorderly conduct were initially sought. The district attorney declined to file several of the charges but has filed for one count of first-degree criminal trespass, three counts of second-degree criminal mischief, one count of first-degree burglary, one count of second-degree burglary, and a parole violation for unlawful possession of methamphetamine.

His next court date is scheduled for December 6.
