The animals in the photo above were recently busted by a brave 12-year-old girl in Troutdale. The skinny:
The terrified girl placed a 9-1-1 call while she hid inside her room under the bed. She described the men to the dispatcher and what kind of car was outside. She said she could hear the suspects in the house.
“He’s rummaging around,” she told the 9-1-1 dispatcher. “I can hear.”
“OK. Talk quiet, OK?” the dispatcher responds. “Can you tell where the noises are coming from?”
“Yeah, it’s right down the hall,” the girl answered in a whisper.
At one point the man was inside her room.
A Troutdale police officer was nearby and a minute later he arrived at the home on Southeast Pelton Avenue with his gun drawn.
Officers arrested the man in the house, another in a getaway car, and the last suspect who ran down the street.
Interestingly, the incident occurred about 20-to-30 minutes after my own home (which isn’t far away) was burglarized. The crime at my house appeared to be a three-man job as well. Thus, I am curious if the cretins above are the same ones who have my bike, my stereo, three or four of my cameras, my baby photos, my baby videos, etc.
Of course though, these treasured members of society are innocent until proven guilty.
