November 29, 2005 00:00


The Portland Police, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers, would like your help in locating and apprehending Valen Earl Bussell. Bussell is wanted on a parole violation warrant. In addition, Southeast Precinct Detectives are investigating a commercial burglary where Bussell has been identified as the suspect.

On August 3, 2005 at about 6:30 a.m., Soil Solutions Environmental Services, 3540 SE 28th Avenue, was broken into and a company truck, a $10,000 sewer camera, and $40,000 of property were stolen. Though most of the property was recovered, the suspect remains at large. On November 20, 2005, a Multnomah County Grand Jury indicted Bussell, a former employee of Soil Solutions, on two counts of Burglary in the second degree.

Valen Earl Bussell is a 23-year-old white male, 5’6” and weighs 150 pounds. He has blond hair and blue eyes, with a tattoo on his right shoulder.

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).
