Crime Stoppers for the Week of March 8, 2004

March 09, 2004 00:00


The Keizer Police Department, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers, would like your help in finding two people wanted in connection with a shooting and car jacking that occurred last month.

On February 14, 2004 a man driving in Salem was cut off by another car. An occupant of that car displayed a gun. Hours later, on February 15, 2004 a woman was driving near Salem when she noticed a car following her. After following her on and off of I-5, into the city of Keizer, the car pulled in front of her, forcing her to stop. A suspect got out of the car got out, armed with a gun, approached the victim’s car and began shooting. The victim was shot in the hand and leg.

Later, a vehicle driven by a woman in Woodburn was stolen at gunpoint.

While arrests have been made, there are two suspects still at large. Police issued warrants for Jose Luis Gonzales and Adair Ruiz Hernandez. Gonzales is a 22-year-old Hispanic male, 5’6”, 145 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. He uses the nicknames Chino, Chapo, and Morris. Hernandez is a 20-year-old Hispanic male, 5’9”, 135 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. He sometimes goes by Omar.

Police think the two may flee the area, possibly heading to Mexico. They may, or may not be travelling together.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward, up to $1,000, for information that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, reported to Crime Stoppers, and you may remain anonymous. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP
