Deputies arrest 18 people from Aloha house during proactive patrols
Deputies say they have arrested 18 people since November 25, during proactive patrols at a known nuisance house.
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 Aloha.
Deputies began conducting proactive enhanced patrols in the vicinity of the residence.
During a 17-day period in late November, deputies arrested 10 individuals for criminal activity, including vehicle theft, possession of narcotics, property theft, carrying a concealed weapon, felony warrants and probation violations.
Early this morning, deputies searched the residence, detaining 17 people inside the house and arresting six of those individuals. Arrests included crimes related to menacing with a weapon, possession of narcotics, forgery, and parole and probation violations.
Deputies also 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.
