Pursuit West of La Pine Sends Driver to Jail with Drug and Weapon Charges (Photo)

Released by: Lt. William Bailey

Release Date: November 30, 2020

Location: Sunrise Boulevard at Rainbow Drive; La Pine

Arrested: Bruce Jr., James W.            Age: 37          La Pine, Oregon

Charges: Attempt to Elude Felony, Reckless Driving, Reckless Endangering, Driving While Suspended Misdemeanor, Resisting Arrest, Possession/Delivery/Manufacture of Methamphetamine, Felon in Possession of Firearm, Tampering with Evidence

NARRATIVE:

On November 29, 2020, at approximately 9:49pm, a deputy with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was patrolling in the area of Sunrise Blvd. and Rainbow Drive, west of La Pine.  The deputy observed a gray Subaru WRX driving on Rainbow Drive at a high rate of speed for the area.  The deputy then observed the Subaru turn off its lights in an attempt to avoid detection.  The deputy alerted another deputy also in the area, who observed the Subaru pull out onto Sunrise Blvd. in front of him.  The second deputy attempted to stop the Subaru, which was still driving without any lighting.  The driver of the Subaru failed to stop and attempted to elude the deputy southbound on Sunrise Blvd. at speeds estimated near 40 MPH.

As the Subaru entered an icy curve in the roadway near the intersection of Sunrise Blvd. and Pinetree Drive, it left the roadway and struck a tree.  Deputies conducted a high risk stop on the vehicle and subsequently took James W. Bruce Jr. of La Pine into custody. 

During a search of Bruce Jr., evidence was recovered that led deputies to suspect he may have a firearm hidden on him.  When they attempted to search him further, he resisted their efforts and he had to be further restrained to facilitate the search.  Although a firearm was not found on him, additional evidence was located inside the Subaru leading deputies to suspect a firearm.  DCSO K9 Ezel and his partner Deputy Jeremiah Johnson conducted an article search in the immediate vicinity of the Subaru.  K9 Ezel located a small caliber pistol in the snow near the Subaru that matched evidence located both on Bruce and in the vehicle.  Additionally, over ten grams of methamphetamine and evidence of manufacture and delivery of methamphetamine were recovered at the scene.

Bruce Jr. was evaluated at the scene by La Pine Fire medics and then a deputy transported him to St. Charles Hospital in Bend for treatment of a minor injury sustained in the crash.  He was then taken to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Jail, where he was booked on the listed charges.

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is a full service agency that oversees the adult jail, provides patrol, criminal investigations, civil process and search and rescue operations. Special units include SWAT, Marine Patrol, ATV Patrol, Forest Patrol, along with six K9 teams. Founded in 1916 and today led by your duly elected Sheriff L.

Suspect Located After Vehicle Pursuit and K-9 Track (Photo)

Released by: Sgt. Jayson Janes

Date: November 24, 2020

Arrested: Jonathan Addington, 22-year-old male, Terrebonne, OR

Vehicle: 1991 Honda Accord

Charges: Felony Fleeing or Attempting to Elude Police Officer, Misdemeanor Attempt to Elude, and Reckless Driving.

On November 23, 2020, at approximately 6:50 PM, a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Deputy attempted to stop a car in the area of NW Chinook and Badger Rd and for observed traffic violations. The car immediately sped up in an attempt to elude the deputy. Deputies pursued the vehicle into the area of NW Quail Road and NW Lower Bridge Way in Terrebonne.  As the vehicle was traveling south on NW Quail Rd, a deputy attempted to utilize the Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT). The driver of the car slammed on his brakes, the deputy turned to avoid a collision with the vehicle, and the second involved deputy ended up side swiping the lead deputy’s car. There were no injuries caused by this, and both Sheriff’s Office vehicles sustained minor damage.

The driver of the vehicle continued onto BLM until his vehicle became disabled.  The driver later identified as Jonathan Addington fled the area on foot.

Additional responding deputies established a perimeter in the area. Deputies located the vehicle abandoned on BLM.  K-9 Ares and his handler began tracking Addington and ultimately tracked him approximately two miles north to a residence located in the 7000 block of NW Rainbow Rd. 

Deputies discovered Jonathan Addington hiding in the attic of a barn on the property.  Deputies were able to determine Addington was driving the vehicle that eluded deputies. 

Addington was issued a criminal citation for the above mentioned charges.

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Oregon State Police, Bend Police Department, and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance with the investigation and identification of Addington in this matter.

Search Warrant Served at Illegal Marijuana Growing Operation (Photo)

Released by: Sgt. Jayson Janes

Date: November 23, 2020

Arrested: Dylan William Stronks, 27 year old male, La Pine OR

Charges: Unlawful Manufacture of Marijuana, Unlawful Delivery of Marijuana, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana, Unlawful Manufacture of Marijuana Extract, Unlawful Delivery of Marijuana Extract, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana Extract, Unlawful Possession of Cocaine, and Unlawful Possession of a Short Barreled Shotgun.

On November 23, 2020 the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Detectives, with the assistance of DCSO SWAT served a search warrant in the 53000 block of Woodstock Dr. in La Pine.

Deschutes County Illegal Marijuana Enforcement Detectives (DCIMED’s) began an investigation in April 2020 into Dylan Stronks after receiving complaints from citizens about the possible manufacture of marijuana at his residence. During the investigation detectives were able to gain information necessary for a search warrant of the property to look for evidence of the Unlawful Manufacture of Marijuana, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana, and Unlawful Delivery of Marijuana.

Inside a detached shop, detectives located an active marijuana growing operation. Detectives seized 506 growing marijuana plants and approximately 55 pounds of dried marijuana.  They also found a Butane Hash Oil (BHO) lab, which was a large open blasting system. BHO extraction is a highly volatile and dangerous process that has resulted in explosions that have injured and killed people in Oregon.  Detectives seized approximately 40 pounds of BHO product, and approximately two ounces of cocaine. Detectives also found evidence the BHO product was being placed into vape pen cartridges.

During the search of the residence detectives located and seized 14 firearms including an AR pistol which was stored in the couch, and short barrel sawed off shotgun stored in the master bedroom as well as a handgun on the master bedrooms night stand. They also located $7,920 in cash.

Stronks was issued a criminal citation for the following charges: Unlawful Manufacture of Marijuana, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana, Unlawful Delivery of Marijuana, Unlawful Manufacture of Marijuana Extract, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana Extract, Unlawful Delivery of Marijuana Extract, Unlawful Possession of Cocaine, and Unlawful Possession of a short barreled shotgun

The Deschutes County Illegal Marijuana Enforcement Detectives (DCIMED’s) would like to thank the legal marijuana businesses within Deschutes County for their collaborative efforts in combating illegal marijuana operations. The knowledge the DCIMED’s received from focus groups confirms that illegal marijuana within Deschutes County is a major concern for the legal marijuana market, residents, and businesses in our community.  DCIMED’s take illegal grow operations seriously due to the unregulated amounts of pesticides, fungicides and chemical solvents that can be used to manufacture marijuana products.  In addition, DCIMED’s have discovered illegal marijuana grows that contained mold, spider mites and toxic/harmful chemicals that are unsafe for human consumption.

The DCIMED’s receive funding to support their positions from taxes that are collected from the recreational marijuana market. Marijuana tax can be used for schools, drug treatment centers, public health, and law enforcement. The Deschutes County Board of Commissions approved the funding for the Deschutes County Illegal Marijuana Enforcement Detective positions.

Serious Injury Crash Near Redmond (Photo)

Released by: Lt. William Bailey

Release Date: November 22, 2020

Driver #1: Van Alstine, Alyssa R.           Age: 33          Redmond, Oregon

Vehicle #1: white 2004 GMC Yukon

NARRATIVE:

On November 22, 2020, at approximately 2:40 am, deputies with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a reported single vehicle injury crash in the 3060 Block of SW Helmholtz Way in Redmond.  A resident in the area had called into 911 dispatch after hearing the crash and then going outside to check on the vehicle occupant.  The vehicle had also struck a power pole along the roadway shoulder, causing the top of the pole to break off and fall onto Helmholtz Way.

Deputies arrived at the crash scene and found the vehicle’s driver, Alyssa R. Van Alstine, laying outside the vehicle with serious, life threatening injuries.  Deputies began providing lifesaving care to Van Alstine until Redmond Fire and Rescue arrived a short time later.  Van Alstine was quickly transported to St. Charles Medical Center in Bend to receive care for her injuries.

An initial investigation at the scene determined Van Alstine was driving a white 2004 GMC Yukon southbound on SW Helmholtz Way when she failed to negotiate a curve and left the roadway.  The Yukon rolled multiple times during the crash, throwing Van Alstine from the vehicle.  Speed and alcohol are being investigated as contributing factors in this crash.  Investigators do not believe she was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. 

SW Helmholtz Way was closed or reduced to one lane of travel for nearly 8 hours, while the pole and cable line were cleared from the roadway.  Deputies would like to thank the Oregon State Police and Deschutes County Road Department for their assistance at the scene.

Use of Force Incident Under Review (Photo)

###UPDATE####

Released By: Sgt. Jayson Janes – Public Information Officer

Date: November 12, 2020

As stated in the June 15, 2020 press release, the Sheriff’s Office advised there would be a complete review of the force used by the deputies during a June11, 2019 arrest that was captured in the photograph.

On June 15, Sheriff L. Shane Nelson was informed as to what was depicted in the photograph and directed the Sheriff’s Office to hire outside investigators to conduct an investigation into this incident. Approximately 268 hours were spent completing this investigation. Based on the evidence the investigators received and statements made by the involved persons, the investigation has shown that the use of force was reasonable for the circumstances, and the claims of excessive force was unfounded.

The photograph that was circulated is a screen shot taken from a video of the incident. The screen shot depicts one moment of the incident and is not a representation of the complete incident. The outside investigators focused on all force employed by the deputies, including one deputy using his knee to control the female, and determined the deputy’s use of his knee was reasonable because she was physically resisting the arrest.

Released by: Sgt. William Bailey – Public Information Officer

Release Date: June 15, 2020

NARRATIVE:

This morning, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office became aware of a photo circulating on social media that appeared to show two of our deputies holding down a female subject, while one of them had a knee on or near her neck.  The photo appears to be a screen shot of cell phone video taken on June 11, 2019.

The cell phone video was captured while deputies were at a residence in Deschutes River Woods on June 11, 2019, enforcing an Order of Assistance: Recover a Child Under Immediate Danger, signed in Deschutes County Circuit Court.  The mother was resisting and blocking deputies and repeatedly called 911 while the deputies were at the residence attempting to locate the child.  The mother received warnings about the crime of Improper Use of 911, yet after they left the residence, she called 911 again when no emergency existed.  Deputies returned to the residence to arrest her for Improper Use of 911 when this incident of force occurred.  

Sheriff Nelson has ordered a complete review of this image and the force depicted in it.  The sheriff’s office takes these matters very seriously and he promises a complete review of the force utilized by the two deputies.  We are working to obtain a copy of the video from the subject that posted the image to social media.

A copy of the DCSO police reports from this incident are available upon request.  As the criminal case is still working its way through the courts, names and other protected information has been redacted.  Media entities that have not already received a copy can request one by emailing Sheriff.PIO@deschutes.org.

RELEASED BY: Sergeant Jayson Janes

DATE: November 11, 2020

 

On November 5, 2020 the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) began the testing and evaluation of body worn and in car camera systems. DCSO had previously established a work group to determine which cameras would best meet the needs of the Sheriff’s Office. The work group met with other State, County, and Municipal law enforcement agencies that were using various camera systems, and attended presentations by camera vendors. Based on input from outside law enforcement agencies and information collected through research and presentations, the Sheriff’s Office selected Watch Guard and Coban cameras to test and evaluate.  

DCSO will test and evaluate both brands of body worn cameras and in car camera systems for 60 days. The final decision on which system to use will be based on the results of the trial and evaluations of the products. The trial period will also include the evaluation of software, storage and personnel investment to manage a program prior to a final decision being made.

The Sheriff’s Office knows implementing the use of body worn cameras is an important step in enhancing public trust and the transparency of our operations. The trial and evaluation period will proceed the 2021-22 fiscal budget preparation period in order to determine the appropriate approach to implementation of body worn and in car camera systems.
