The officer knew businesses in the nearby Hawthorne business district had been suffering the effects of a prolific burglar over the past year or so. He transported Sparley to southeast precinct. There, a detective picked up the investigation. Eventually, police arrested Sparley on approximately 30 counts of burglary.
Sparley was booked at the Multnomah county jail.
While this arrest may bring some relief to area business owners, Detectives believe there are other people responsible for burglaries in the area, and encourage anybody who sees suspicious activity around a business after hours, to call police right away.
Sgt. Pete Simpson
