Two Suspects Arrested in Home Invasion Robbery

May 01, 2006 00:00


On May 1, 2006, Portland Police Detectives assigned to the afternoon detail arrested 26-year-old Arthur Campbell and 28-year-old Jason Smith on four counts each of Robbery in the First Degree and one count each of Burglary in the First Degree for their role in a home invasion robbery on April 30, 2006.

At 11:20 p.m., on April 30, 2006, Campbell and Smith forced their way into a home located on the 6400 block of East Burnside Street where they attempted to rob four occupants. During the robbery, one of the victims called 911 and Southeast Precinct Officers responded while Campbell and Smith were still in the home. The officers learned that one of the suspects might have been armed and holed-up in the basement of the home, which resulted in the Portland Police Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) responding to the scene. SERT searched the home, but did not find an additional suspect.

Detectives are still trying to contact witnesses associated with this case and asking anyone with information to call Detective Jeff Sharp at (503) 823-0453.

This investigation is continuing.
