The Portland Police Bureau's Drug and Vice Division, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers, is asking for your help in locating and apprehending Paul Alexander Ransom. A Multnomah County Grand Jury indicted Ransom on charges of Compelling Prostitution, Promoting Prostitution and Conspiracy to Promote Prostitution. A felony arrest warrant, with bail set at $1,520,000 and extraditable nationwide, is on file in Multnomah County. In addition, the US Marshals Service holds an unrelated arrest warrant that is also extraditable nationwide.

Paul Alexander Ransom, who uses numerous aliases and dates of birth and goes by the street names of "BG" and "Baby Grand," is a 39-year old black male. Ransom is 6'0" tall and weighs approximately 200 pounds, with black hair, brown eyes, and a tattoo on his left forearm. Ransom should be considered armed and dangerous.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, which leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony crime, and you need not give your name. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP.
