Crime Stoppers Of The Week

January 26, 2005 00:00


The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers, would like your help in solving a recent burglary to a business.

On January 18, 2005 at about 2:30 a.m. a person or persons forced their way into O’Neill Tools, 7133 Northeast Glisan Street and stole about $20,000 in tools.

The store owner, Michael O’Neill, provided a list of the items to police which included a variety of nail guns, compressors, and other professional grade tools. Detectives said the sheer number of items taken, and the size of many of the items, suggests the suspects must have used a vehicle to haul everything away. Detectives said a red pickup truck was seen around the business at the time of the burglary. There are no suspect descriptions.

Detectives at Southeast Precinct would like to hear from anyone who has specific information about the burglary to O’Neill Tools or who knows someone who has brand new tools for sale under circumstances that seem suspicious. These circumstances could include brand new tools for sale at prices that seem too low for a particular item or brand new tools for sale out of a vehicle, storage unit, or private garage.

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