The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help to ID a man seen driving away from an Aug. 26 Rhododendron burglary in a Chevy Silverado.
At 9:45 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 26, 2021, Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a reported burglary in progress at a cabin on East Road 12 in Rhododendron. Surveillance video shows a man arriving at the cabin in a long tan coat, looking in the cabin's windows after removing the coat, and leaving the scene carrying stolen tools including a powered saw.
The suspect also stole cameras that recorded his crime.
A Chevy Silverado pickup with a bed full of items was spotted about a quarter-mile from the crime scene, leaving the area. The Silverado has a large dent on the driver’s side rear quarter panel and bumper sticker on the tailgate. The driver was wearing a two-toned, short-sleeved shirt matching the shirt worn by the suspect. Authorities believe he is connected to the crime.
The suspect is described as follows:
- White male adult in his 30s or 40s
- Medium to heavy build
- Wearing grey "baseball-style" short-sleeved shirt with dark sleeves, dark jeans, work boots, a dark-colored baseball cap, a dark-colored mask, and grey work gloves with a red strap at the wrist
