MORROW CO., Ore. - Two Oregon teens are facing a laundry list of charges after the Morrow County Sheriff's Office received at least seven complaints from residents in the Irrigon area.
Deputies began investigating the complaints around December 29, 2018. The crimes included theft, trespassing and burglary to name a few.
Once the two boys were identified as the primary suspects, deputies also learned one had a felony warrant out for running away from the Homestead Youth Lodge and the other teen was wanted for a warrant out of Morrow County.
On January 3, 2019, deputies were alerted that the teens were in the area of NE Sixth Street and NE Seventh Street in Irrigon. After a 10-minute foot chase, both boys were arrested for the warrants they had.
The boys now face charges of burglary, unlawful entry and use of a motor vehicle, theft, criminal trespass and escape. One also faces charges of unlawful possession of marijuana.
Both are being held at the Juvenile Northeast Oregon Regional Correctional Facility.
Deputies say the arrests have closed at least seven cases but they are investigating to see if there are more victims or charges that need to be filed.
