Vandal detected, arrested

Sheriff’s deputies charged a suspect with criminal vandalism of a Portland area recovery center after Sonitrol Pacific’s audio security system detected the person May 21.

Just after 2:30 a.m., Operator Michael Young was monitoring security systems of Portland clients when he received an alarm from the center.  He heard several “loud, sharp bangs”, suspected someone was trying to break in and called the Washington County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies were on scene in about five minutes of Young’s call.  They found someone vandalizing the facility and charged with the individual with criminal mischief.

The person had egged and toilet papered the building, but never got inside.
