Stuck motorist rescued from Cascade Lakes Highway near FS road 40

Released by: Lt. Mike Biondi, Special Services Coordinator

Occurred: 01/20/2021 at 8:00 p.m.

Location: Cascade Lakes Hwy near FS road 40

Rescued:  Walters, Timothy - Jefferson, Or, 20 year old male

Vehicle: Black 2001 Chevy Silverado pickup

NARRATIVE:

On 01/20/21 at about 8:00 PM, Deschutes County Dispatch received a call from Ken Walters stating that his son, Timothy Walters, was stuck in the snow.  Ken said Timothy believed he was in the Sisters area.  During the phone call, Timothy's phone battery died.  When Ken was unable to re-contact Timothy he called dispatch.

A phone ping was initiated and gave a general location of 9.8 miles southwest of Mt. Bachelor but no specific coordinates.  A Deschutes County Search and Rescue Coordinator was contacted for assistance. 

Five Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue (SAR) volunteers and one Special Services Deputy responded to assist.  Two SAR members were sent to the area of Cascade Lakes Hwy via FS road 40.  The volunteers travelled the majority of the way to the stuck subjects with a 4x4 pickup.  They then deployed the tracked DCSO SAR ARGO ATV and located Timothy at  02:35 a.m.  He was uninjured and in good spirits. SAR members learned Timothy was attempting to hike in the Three Sisters wilderness.  

Timothy was provided a courtesy ride back to Bend where he was reunited with his family.  All DCSO resources returned to quarters by 05:00 a.m. 

The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office would like to remind those travelling during the winter to anticipate changes in the weather and varying snowpack conditions.  It is also recommended if you’re travelling forest service roads this time of year they are generally not maintained so planning your route is suggested.  Also, be sure to bring appropriate vehicles and equipment: including a shovel, lighting, clothing, blankets, food, water, navigation and communication devices to include a cell phone charger.

Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue assist injured snowmobile rider at Elk Lake Lodge (Photo)

Released by:      Dep. Shane Zook, Assistant Search And Rescue Coordinator

Occurred:           01/16/2021     7:19 PM 

Location:            Elk Lake Lodge

Rescued:           Shaver, Kevin  Bend, OR, 50 yo male

                       

 

  NARRATIVE:

On 01/16/21 at about 7:19 PM, Deschutes County Dispatch received a 911 call from Rebecca Shaver, stating that her husband, Kevin Shaver, had been involved in a snowmobile accident and needed transportation from Elk Lake Lodge, back to the Dutchman Flat Snow Park.

A Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Special Services Deputy contacted the Shaver's by phone.  The Shaver's explained that Kevin's crash had happened at about 3:00 PM, and they were currently back at the Elk Lake Resort cabin that they were staying in.  Due to the potential injuries that Shaver may have received from the crash, it was determined that Shaver needed to be transported out for medical treatment as soon as possible. 

Elk Lake Lodge is not accessible by vehicle this time of year, as Cascade Lakes Highway is closed for winter.  The Specical Services Deputy made arrangements with the staff at Elk Lake Lodge for Shaver's transport.  Four volunteers with Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue responded to Elk Lake Lodge on snowmobiles.  Two SAR medical team members rode with, and monitored Shaver's condition during transport as Elk Lake Lodge used one of their tracked vehicles to transport Shaver back out to Dutchman Flat Snow Park.

A medic unit with Bend Fire and Rescue was staged at Dutchman Flat Snow Park as Shaver arrived.  Shaver declined transport via ambulance and had his wife drive him to Bend, where he planned to seek further medical treatment. 

All DCSO resources returned to quarters by 1:00AM.  DCSO would like to thank Elk Lake Lodge and Bend Fire and Rescue for their assistance in this rescue.

Released by: Sgt. Jayson Janes, Public Information Officer

Date: January 10, 2021

Driver: Glen James Carroll, 47 year old male, Redmond

Charges: Attempt to Elude Felony, Attempt to Elude Misdemeanor, Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine, Reckless Driving, and Driving while Suspended Misdemeanor.

Vehicle: 2001 Volvo, black, four door.

 

On Saturday January 9, 2021, at approximately 8:53 AM, a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Deputy attempted a traffic stop in the area of NW 6th street and NW Quince Avenue in Redmond.  The vehicle, a black 2001 Volvo 4door, was being stopped for several traffic violations to include speeding, fail to use turn signal and expired registration. 

As the deputy initiated the stop, the Volvo took off westbound on NW Quince Avenue.  The vehicle made its way back to Highway 97 from NW Pershall Way, and started to drive southbound through Redmond on Highway 97.

 Redmond Police Officers were able to deploy spike strips in the area of Highway 97 and Evergreen Avenue.  The driver drove over the spike strips with the rear passenger side tire.  The Volvo continued southbound through Redmond.  

After leaving the city limits, the driver was driving approximately 100 MPH as the tire deflated.  The car slowed down and the tire eventually came off.  The driver then left the highway on the east side of Highway 97 across from Tomahawk Avenue, taking a BLM road.  It crossed the railroad tracks and started driving in a northeast direction through BLM land.  The driver eventually stopped and got out of the car and ran.  The Deputy was able to take him into custody after a short foot pursuit.  

The driver was identified as Glen James Carroll, 47 yo male from Redmond.  When Carroll was arrested, he was in possession of approximately one ounce of suspected methamphetamine.  There was minimal traffic on the roadways during the pursuit.  Carroll was cited and released at the scene for the above mentioned charges.

The Sheriffs Office would like to thank the Redmond Police Department for their assistance.

Class Prepares Volunteers to Mentor Children of Incarcerated Parents

Central Oregon Partnerships for Youth (COPY), a program of the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, is offering a virtual class to prepare volunteers to become mentors for children with an incarcerated parent.

After initial training and comprehensive background checks, volunteers are matched with a child in Bend, Redmond, Sisters or LaPine that share similar interests and activities and commit to spending a few hours a week together for a minimum of one year. This time is often spent on outside activities, exploring the community, doing art or craft projects, or simply hanging out and talking.

On Saturday, January 16, COPY will offer a virtual orientation/training class. This 3½-hour class covers program policies, how to establish a mentor relationship, the impact incarceration has on families, communication skills, and safety and best practices for mentoring in a COVID-19 world. There is no cost to attend, but advanced registration is required.

For additional details please call 541-388-6651 or email COPY@deschutes.org Additional program information is available at the Sheriff’s Office web site at www.sheriff.deschutes.org/copy.

Stuck motorist tescued north of Paulina Lake (Photo)

Released by:      Dep. Shane Zook, Assistant Search And Rescue Coordinator

Occurred:           12/30/2020     3:08 PM 

Location:            Forest Service road, north of Paulina Lake

Rescued:           Thompson, Paul, Bend, OR, 37 yo male

                         Thompson's 13 yo daughter

 


           
  NARRATIVE:

On 12/30/20 at about 1508 hours, Deschutes County Dispatch received a 911 call from a male stating that his adult son, Mr. Paul Thompson, and Thompson's 13 year old daughter, were stuck in a vehicle somewhere near Paulina Lake.  The caller stated that the two individuals had been stuck since the evening of 12/29/20.  It was initially unknown what road the vehicle was stuck on, however, another family member had used a phone application to locate the 13 year old female's phone at 9:00 AM, which showed her to be on the north side of Paulina Lake.  This turned out to be very helpful because when a Special Services deputy attempted to ping the individuals cell phone, the phone was either turned off, or the battery had gone dead.

One Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Deputy and three Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue volunteers responded to assist.  The DCSO SAR volunteers travelled the majority of the way to the stuck subjects with a 4x4 pickup, then deployed the tracked DCSO SAR ARGO ATV.  At about 5:30 PM the volunteers had travelled about 5.5 miles in the ARGO ATV and arrived at the location where Thompson, his daughter, and their two dogs were waiting with their stuck vehicle.  Both subjects and their two dogs were unharmed and were provided with a ride out to the SAR pickup, and then given a ride to their awaiting family on China Hat Road.  DCSO resources returned to quarters by 7:00 PM. 

The DCSO would like to remind the public to use caution when traveling on forest roads this time of year due to snowpack. Road conditions vary significantly and roads can quickly become impassable.  Further, if you are traversing in these conditions be sure to bring appropriate vehicles, equipment, lighting, clothing, food, water, navigation and communication devices.
