Shots Fired during dispute north of La Pine

Released by: Sgt. Shawn Heierman & Lt. Mike Sundberg

Release Date: May 29, 2020

 

Location:    17300 block of Jacinto Rd

 

Arrested:     Jonathan Floyd Taft (39 years old)

                        LaPine resident

 

Charges:     Criminal Trespass II

                       Disorderly Conduct II

                       Menacing

                       Resisting arrest

                       Assault on Law Enforcement Animal

                       Attempted Assault IV

                      

 

NARRATIVE:

 

On May 28, 2020 at approximately 9:03 p.m., Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a dispute involving multiple shots being fired in the Jacinto Rd/ Solar Rd area just south of Spring River Rd.  Residents in the area called Deschutes County 911 dispatch to report hearing gunshots proceeded by a loud verbal dispute between a male and female.

 

Sheriff’s Office Deputies along with Bend Police Department, and Oregon State Police Troopers arrived in the area soon afterwards including on-duty swat personnel. Armored vehicles from the Sheriff’s Office and Bend Police Department responded due to the serious nature of the call and concerns that someone may have been injured by the approximately 10 shots that were reported to have been fired during the dispute.

 

After officers arrived on scene, Deschutes County 911 dispatch continued to receive reports of a physical and verbal dispute occurring near the shots fired location. Law Enforcement on scene established a containment perimeter near the location to protect nearby residents.

 

Jonathan Floyd Taft was located in the driveway of 17325 Jacinto Rd which was determined to be the location of the initial dispute. Taft was challenging with deputies and refused to follow officer’s instructions. Deputies attempted to negotiate with Taft who continued to display combative and threatening behavior towards Law Enforcement. It was determined Taft was the suspect in the initial dispute where he attempted to assault a male and menaced a female on scene.

 

Concerns that Taft may be have been armed and was threatening to assault Law Enforcement, Sheriff’s Office Patrol K-9 Ezel was deployed in order to get Taft into custody. Taft resisted arrest, and in doing so punched K-9 Ezel multiple times. K-9 Ezel overpowered Taft who was then taken into custody.

 

It was determined the initial dispute began as a disagreement when Taft trespassed in order to retrieve his property. During the dispute Taft attempted to assault a female and male on scene. This resulted in the female victim using her firearm for her own protection. This female fired several warning shots to prevent the assault. A nearby neighbor heard the dispute and gunshots and perceived a threat to him and his family’s safety. Believing the assault had moved to his property, the neighbor also fired several warning shots in the air. No injuries were sustained from the warning shots being fired.

 

Taft was evaluated on scene by La Pine Fire Department medics. He was later transported to St. Charles Hospital in Bend for further evauation due to minor injuries sustained from K-9 Ezel before Taft was lodged at the Deschutes County Jail for the above charges.

  • 31 pounds of illegal processed marijuana

65100 block of N. Highway 97

  • 744 illegal marijuana plants seized

18600 block of Riverwoods Drive

  • Felony amount of illegal BHO extract
  • 1 firearm

 NARRATIVE:

On the morning of May 27, 2020, Marijuana Enforcement Detectives with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office being assisted by the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team (CODE) and Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team, served three search warrants in relation to an ongoing criminal investigation into illegal marijuana operations.  The investigation was initiated after detectives received complaints from neighbors about the odor, validity of the grow operations, and unfamiliar/increased traffic in their neighborhood.

The first search warrant was served at a property in the 51200 block of Festis Avenue, west of La Pine.  At this location, 132 illegal marijuana plants and over 31 pounds of illegal processed marijuana were seized.  Detectives also found what appeared to be unpermitted structures and electrical work at the location that was being used to support the illegal grow operation.  This unpermitted electrical work presents a potential fire hazard, which threatens nearby public lands and the safety of homes and families in the area.

A second search warrant was served at a residence in the 18600 block of Riverwoods Drive, south of Bend.  A felony amount of BHO, or butane hash oil, and a firearm were seized at this location.

A third search warrant was served at a property in the 65100 block of N. Highway 97, between Bend and Redmond.  At this location, 744 illegal marijuana plants were seized.   

The Marijuana Enforcement Detectives (MED’s) would like to thank the legal marijuana businesses within Deschutes County for their collaborative efforts in combating illegal marijuana within the county. The knowledge the MED’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.

The MED’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 Marijuana Enforcement Detective positions.

Since July 2018, MED’s have been in operation and have encountered multiple unknown subjects and 43 firearms while serving marijuana search warrants. The MED’s would like to thank the DCSO SWAT team for their specialized skills and commitment for the safety to the suspects, area residences and law enforcement officers in these operations.

This investigation is ongoing.

The suspect was identified as Andrew S Garrett, age 28, of La Pine, Oregon.

Garrett was also in possession of a backpack that likely contained paint and other evidence. DCSO Deputies later obtained a Search Warrant from a County Circuit Court Judge and seized additional evidence from the backpack, including, methamphetamine and paint.

DCSO Deputies investigated and determined that Garrett was the same person painting random words and scribbles on many businesses throughout the downtown La Pine area during the previous week. Based on evidence collected at the gas station and the other scenes, Garrett was also identified as the suspect in those previous six cases.

Due to COVID-19 protocols, Garrett was cited in lieu of custody for several counts of Criminal Mischief I and Criminal Trespass. He was issued citations and told to leave the business property. He refused and challenged DCSO Deputies to a fight before spitting and throwing gas station trash cans at them and Sheriff’s Office vehicles. A DCSO Deputy received minor injuries during the struggle with Garrett, who was uninjured.

DCSO Deputies arrested Garrett for the new crimes and lodged in the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Jail with the above listed charges.

DCSO believes there may be additional victims that either have not found or reported recent graffiti damage. Deputies ask that any additional victims in the downtown La Pine area to report any graffiti to our office by calling 541-693-6911 or use the DCSO on-line reporting system at sheriff.deschutes.org.

Investigating deputies determined Maricle was northbound on Deschutes Market Road towing an implement behind his tractor which was partially in the southbound lane of travel.  Webb was southbound on Deschutes Market Road and saw the tractor in the roadway along with a line of cars behind it.  Webb didn't see the implement and struck it with her vehicle, sheering part of it off.  After striking the implement, Webb's vehicle struck the Anderson's van/trailer (which had been directly behind Maricle's vehicle) causing it to go off the roadway and into the ditch adjacent to the northbound lane of travel.  Webb's vehicle crossed the southbound lane and came to rest on the southbound shoulder of the road.   

Webb, who had to be extricated from her vehicle, was transported by Bend Fire Department paramedics to Saint Charles Medical Center - Bend with non-life threatening injuries.  None of the other vehicle occupants were transported.  Maricle had been operating with his emergency flashers activated and was displaying a "slow moving vehicle" placard on the rear portion of the tractor.  All vehicle occupants had been wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash.  Deschutes Market Road was partially or fully closed for approximately two hours.

Recurring Central Oregon Scam Alert (Photo)

Released by: Sgt. William Bailey - Public Information Officer

Release Date:  May 6, 2020

Narrative:

The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office would like to again warn the citizens of Central Oregon of the recurring warrant scam hitting our area.  We have taken another report today from a community member who had been contacted by a subject who identified himself as "Captain Deron McMaster with the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office" and asked for money to clear up a warrant issued after missing jury duty.  The citizen was also told they could clear up the warrant by paying the bail with Green Dot debit cards over the telephone.  The victim in today’s case had provided $800 worth of Green Dot card information over the phone before deputies could alert him of the scam.

Law enforcement will never contact a citizen and ask for money to clear up a warrant or any other legal matter. If a citizen has a warrant, a member of a law enforcement agency will likely contact you in person and have the proper credentials to identify themselves. Citizens should always be skeptical of any situation where an unfamiliar person is asking for money over the telephone.

The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office would like to ask community members to share this scam information with others. Unfortunately, we have had community members fall victim to this scam in the past and we would like to prevent anyone else from falling victim in the future. Consider talking with a neighbor, calling a friend or family member and/or sharing this information on social media. The best way to prevent someone from falling victim to this scam is through education.

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.

Social Media Video of Infant With Marijuana Leads to Arrest of Two Adults

Released by:   Sgt. Kent Vander Kamp

Release Date:  May 6, 2020

Location:      60000 Block of Navajo Rd, Bend

Arrested:      Raechel R Gilland, Age 37, of Bend, Oregon

                      Ethan W Burgess, Age 18, of Bend, Oregon

Charges:     Endangering the Welfare of a Minor

                     Recklessly Endangering Another Person

NARRATIVE:

On May 5th, 2020, a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Deputy received information from concerned citizens about a video that was posted on Snapchat, a popular multimedia social media application.

DCSO Deputies located the video posted by Burgess and identified all of the people shown in the video. The 30 second video shows a 4 month old girl sitting in Burgess’ lap while she is playing with and chewing on a large plastic bag containing marijuana as several adults watched.

The video pans across the room and shows the baby’s grandmother, Raechel Gilland, watching as the baby puts the marijuana bag in her mouth. During the investigation, it was determined that Gilland gave her granddaughter the bag of marijuana because the baby was teething and did not have anything else to sooth the baby.

Burgess recorded the scene and posted it to his social media where it was seen and shared.

Gillard and Burgess were both cited, in lieu of custody, for Endangering the Welfare of a Minor and Recklessly Endangering Another.

The citations were issued in accordance with the Deschutes County Sheriff jail’s COVID-19 protocols designed to protect jail staff and inmates. Instead of a “physical arrest”, the citation-in-lieu-of-custody releases the person on the promise to appear in court at a specified date and time.

A citation-in-lieu of custody is still an “arrest” and does not discount the seriousness of the alleged crimes.

The Oregon DHS Child Protective Services assisted at the scene and assumed care of the 4 month old child and a 2-year-old sibling.

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office encourages adults to keep cannabis, cannabis products and packaging from way children. Although Oregon adults can now legally use marijuana, the Oregon Health Authority reports marijuana and its packaging have many chemicals that may negatively affect developing fetuses, babies and young children.

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, Street Crimes, Marine Patrol, ATV Patrol, Forest Patrol, along with six K9 teams. Founded in 1916 and today led by your duly elected Sheriff L.
