On Tuesday September 12, 2017, at 3:31 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to the Outer Rim Bicycle Shop, located at 10625 Northeast Halsey Street, after an alarm company contacted police regarding a burglary.
Officers arrived at the location and found a window to the business had been broken. While officers searched the interior of the business, additional officers canvassed the neighborhood and search for the suspect.
While canvassing the area, an officer located two brand new bicycles hidden in bushes just south of the Outer Rim Bicycle Shop. The officer inspected the bicycles and located an Outer Rim Bicycle price tag on one of the bicycles. The officers collected the bicycles so they could be returned to the bicycle shop owner.
As officers remained in the area they contacted a man that was associated with a vehicle that was parked near the recovered bicycles. Based on information learned during the investigation, including observations from viewing surveillance video, the man was arrested.
The suspect was identified as 34-year-old Derek B. Conley. Conley was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Burglary in the Second Degree (two counts), Theft in the First Degree (two counts) and Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree.
