Crime Stoppers Week of 10-15-07

October 16, 2007 00:00


The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers, is asking for your help in finding a wanted burglary suspect.

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office has issued a no bail warrant for 41-year-old James Sean Carlson on one count of Burglary in the first degree. Carlson was the subject of a January 2007 Crime Stopper case after fingerprints linked Carlson to several Alameda neighborhood residential burglaries that occurred in October 2006. Carlson was eventually arrested, charged, and convicted of the Burglaries. He was sentenced to probation and has recently failed to report to his probation officer and has violated the conditions of his probation. Additionally, East Precinct Detectives have probable cause to arrest Carlson on at least five new burglaries committed in the east county area.

Carlson is described as a white male, 5”11 tall, 175-180 pounds, with short red hair and mustache, and blue eyes. Carlson is listed as a Potential Armed Career Criminal, and is considered a heavy methamphetamine user.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and you remain anonymous. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357) or 9-1-1 if the suspects location is known.
