Deputies Arrest 4 and Lodge 3 Friday

Josephine County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested and lodged three individuals Friday, one on a warrant service.

According to the Sheriff’s log, whose first entry is at 11:38 p.m., contact had already been made with a 24-year-old man and 22-year-old woman in the 900 block of Lakeshore drive with a tow vehicle dispatched.

The man was lodged on a probation violation from an original charge of criminal mischief I, crime damage and he remained in custody Saturday morning. The woman was cited to appear in court on April 3rd for a failure to appear charge.

A second arrest was being executed almost simultaneously at Shari’s Restaurant after locating a suspect’s vehicle in the parking lot. Deputies detained a 58-year-old man on two active warrants, a misdemeanor warrant for failure to appear for criminal driving while suspended or revoked, and a felony warrant tor unlawful possession of a destructive device. He was lodged and also remained in custody Saturday morning. The Shari’s manager advised the vehicle could not remain on the property, so a tow was summoned.

The 3rd arrest was executed at the Sheriff’s office with the service of a warrant for driving under the influence of intoxicants and reckless driving. The log indicated the 32-year-old man was lodged at 8:14 Friday morning but the suspect was not in custody this morning.
