Nighttime Nailer Nailed


Tuesday morning at about 5:37 a.m., Oregon City Police arrested 56-year-old Bret Michael Wilson, of Oregon City, for intentionally throwing nails from his vehicle onto S. Center Street.

Police dubbed Wilson the Nighttime Nailer, because over the last two years, someone had been intentionally throwing roofing nails onto local streets, primarily in the early morning hours while it was still dark outside.

Some of the thrown nails caused damage to vehicle tires.

Over the last week, Wilson allegedly threw nails on both S. Center Street between Telford Road and S. 2nd Street along with S. Center Street between Barker Avenue and S. 2nd Street between 5:40 a.m. and 5:50 a.m.

When Wilson was stopped, he admitted to intentionally throwing nails onto the streets, not only in Oregon City but throughout the metropolitan area. Wilson told police he has thrown nails over 50 times onto streets over the last couple years.

Wilson was lodged at the Clackamas County Jail on four counts of Disorderly Conduct II. We are combining the previous cases together and will be submitting them to the Clackamas County District Attorney’s Office.
