Police Seek Owners Of Stolen Segway And Firefighter's Coat

Over the last month, Central Precinct’s Neighborhood Response Team (NRT) has been investigating a series of burglaries which occurred in Southeast Portland. Burglars broke into one specific house several times, stealing a vehicle and numerous collectible heirlooms. Their exhaustive investigation uncovered vital evidence which led the Neighborhood Response Team to apply for a warrant to search the residence located at 1324 Southeast 14th Avenue.

On December 21, 2021, with the assistance of the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT), Central Precinct NRT served the search warrant and several people were taken into custody. A search of the residence resulted in the recovery of property stolen from the home originally burglarized, as well as a firearm, an electric motorcycle, a Segway, suspected stolen industrial equipment, a stolen firefighter turnout coat, a key-cutter and several dozen stolen, forged and fraudulent checks and financial documents. In all, over 70 items of evidence were sized. Property seized by the Neighborhood Response Team suggests these individuals were involved in numerous criminal events within inner-Southeast Portland, at both commercial and residential locations.

Jay Lamb, 35, of Portland, was charged with Theft in the First Degree, Theft by Receiving, and Burglary in the Second Degree, and lodged at the Multnomah County Detention Center. Additional charges are expected as this investigation continues.

Karen Brown, 27, was lodged at the Multnomah County Detention Center on two existing felony warrants, with additional charges expected as this investigation continues.

Jeffrey Garder, 45, and Koy Hill, 52, both of Portland, were cited for outstanding warrants.

Central Precinct’s Neighborhood Response Team is asking for the public’s assistance with identifying the owners of a recovered Segway, and tan Fire Fighter turnout coat (not belonging to Portland Fire). Anyone with information is asked to email crimetips@portlandoregon.gov attention Central NRT.
