A "plethora" of suspected stolen items were recovered by authorities during a search of a home in North Portland this week, the Portland Police Bureau said on Saturday, June 18.
In a series of Tweets, police said they executed a search warrant at a home near the corner of North Cook Street and North Kerby Avenue. There they found a veritable trove of stolen goods, including three cars, guns, passports, social security cards, a USPS jacket and hat, and mail from more than 30 people.
Police said the investigation started with a night shift officer and became a multi-agency effort, with help from bureau detectives, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, a Special Emergency Reaction Team, and the USPS Postal Inspector.
Police shared photos from the cache of recovered items. Several computers, assault rifles, ammunition and a Mercedez-Benz were among the seized property shown in photos. Methamphetamine and drugs police suspect to be fentanyl were also recovered at the scene, along with instructions on how to make fake IDs, police said.
According to police, investigators also seized "washed checks" as evidence — checks made from a process in which someone uses chemicals to erase the ink so they can rewrite and reuse them.
Police did not identify any suspects or say whether any arrests were made. KOIN 6 News has reached out to PPB for more information.
