North Precinct Detectives Recover Stolen Property

March 17, 2005 00:00


On March 16th, 2005, at 3:00 PM, North Precinct officers arrested 36-year-old Troy Michael Powell on multiple burglary warrants after responding to a “burglary in progress” call in the 7600 block of North Curtis Avenue. Officers received the call from a witness who watched Powell walk into the back yard of a neighboring home and force entry to a window. Officers arrived and arrested Powell inside the home. After arresting Powell, detectives continued the investigation and recovered a substantial amount of suspected stolen property from Powell’s residence.

The property, consisting primarily of jewelry, small electronics, and coin collections was taken to North Precinct for inventory and will be on display from 12:00 PM until 2:00 PM today. Detectives believe the property was stolen within the past thirty days from inner North and Northeast Portland. Investigators do not believe Powell stole any items that could not be carried in a backpack. Anyone who was recently a victim of a residential burglary is asked to attend the viewing or contact North Precinct detectives at (503) 823-2122 to make an appointment to view the property. Detectives will only accept appointments from victims who have previously reported a burglary.
