Earlier this year, Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies began receiving reports of alleged criminal activity related to a nuisance residence located on Southwest Ping Court in the community of Aloha.
Deputies began conducting proactive enhanced patrols in the vicinity of the residence. During a 17 day period beginning in late November, deputies arrested 10 individuals (one person twice) for criminal activity associated with the residence. Arrests included crimes related to vehicle theft, possession of narcotics, property theft, carrying a concealed weapon, felony warrants, and probation violations.
Early Friday morning, deputies served a search warrant at the residence. Deputies detained 17 people inside the house, arresting six of those individuals. Arrests included crimes related to menacing with a weapon, possession of narcotics, forgery, and parole and probation violations.
As the mission was concluding, deputies spotted a stolen vehicle nearby that had been observed at the residence earlier. One of the occupants fled as deputies approached and he was arrested after a short foot pursuit. The driver of the stolen vehicle was arrested for unlawful use of a vehicle and a felony warrant.
Deputies were assisted by the Westside Inter-Agency Narcotics and Inter-Agency Gang Enforcement Teams. They were also assisted by Sheriff's Office detectives from the Violent Crimes Unit, Property Crimes Unit, and Special Investigations Unit.
The inter-agency Tactical Negotiations Team, Crisis Negotiation Unit, and Washington County Parole & Probation assisted during the search warrant.
