slides: Portland Police Release Personal Photos From Stolen Camera
Thursday, January 29, 2015
Police were unsure if the owners would mind.
See the photos from the stolen camera in the slides below.
“Since we don’t know who the owner is, hard to know what they might think about the photos going out,” said Sgt. Pete Simpson of the Portland Police Bureau. “Our goal is to reunite a piece of stolen property with the rightful owner.”
Within hours of releasing the photos police reported that the camera's owner had been identified.
"Thanks to many people sharing this story via social media, the owner of the camera has been in contact with police," Simpson said. "The camera was stolen approximately eight years ago near Centennial High School in Gresham. Next week, officers will coordinate with the owner to return the camera."
Police recovered a Canon digital camera, with an estimated value of $1,000, and related equipment from a suspect's car belonging to Jacqueline Tasha Moore 22, on Tuesday. Police suspected the camera was stolen, Simpson said.
Moore was arrested and charged with driving with a revoked license and possession of methamphetamine after a traffic stop on Southeast 102nd Avenue and Ankeny Street, according to police.
