Officers recover luggage stolen from airport

February 27, 2003 00:00


On Wednesday, February 26, 2003, Officers from the East Precinct Special Crimes Team and investigators from the Port of Portland executed a search warrant in an apartment located in the 2500 block of Southeast 109th Avenue. At the apartment, officers recovered more than 30 pieces of luggage stolen from the baggage claim area of the Portland Airport.

The investigation began at about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, when Portland Police officers arrested 42-year-old Terry Haman and 35-year-old Deborah Evansen in a stolen van near Mall 205. After arresting the suspects, officers learned that Haman and Evansen were suspects in a current theft investigation being conducted by the Port of Portland. Officers then developed probable cause to believe the luggage would be found in the apartment. Officers are currently attempting to locate the owners of the luggage and identify additional victims.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to call the Port of Portland at (503) 460-4747.

This investigation is continuing.
