Portland Fire & Rescue arson investigators arrested Randolph C. Hubbard last night in relation to fire damage to an ATM. Mr. Hubbard was arraigned this afternoon.
Early on August 1, 2010, a surveillance camera at the Unitus Community Credit Union, located at 1300 SW 6th Avenue, took a picture of a person attempting to use the ATM. At the same time, a surveillance video camera recorded the same person causing fire damage to the ATM. An Oregon Trail card and another piece of identification kept by the ATM also linked Mr. Hubbard to the incident. When staff reported to work later that morning, the fire damage was discovered.
Portland Fire & Rescue arson investigators, working with the Portland Police Bureau and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, were able to connect Mr. Hubbard with this incident and took him into custody. Mr. Hubbard has been charged with Arson II, Criminal Mischief (a Class C misdemeanor), and Reckless Burning. Maximum penalties could be $8,500 and six years imprisonment.
Investigators are unable to release any further evidence at this time.
