PORTLAND, Ore. — Police arrested a 22-year-old on drug and gun charges Wednesday as part of a Portland Police “livability patrol” in the Lloyd District.

Patrol officers say they noticed a white 4-door Acura parked at the Safeway on NE Broadway that was connected an illegal drug investigation from the previous week.

They talked with the only person inside the car, Tristan Gladstein, 22, and “observed evidence of illegal drug possession.”

During a vehicle search, police found heroin, distribution materials, more than $700 cash, and a gun.

Gladstein was later booked into the Multnomah County Jail on delivery of heroin, unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a loaded firearm in public, and an open warrant out of San Francisco for vandalism.

More from the bureau on their livability patrols:

During extra patrol details in the Lloyd District and Irvington and Hollywood Neighborhoods, officers focus on livability concerns identified by community members, businesses, community organizations and district officers. North Precinct will conduct future neighborhood livability patrols as staffing allows.
