MADRAS, Ore. (KTVZ) – Two of four suspects have been arrested, a third man identified and a woman and getaway car also are being sought in a string of October burglaries at a half-dozen Madras businesses, including three marijuana dispensaries, police said Friday.

Officers have been investigating the series of burglaries the evening of Oct. 10 and early morning of Oct. 11 at three marijuana dispensaries – Diamond Tree, Plantae and Green Knottz – as well as Bi-Mart, T&D Nails and Platt Electric, Detective Brent Schulke said.

Through the investigation, four people were found to be involved in the burglaries. Two men have been arrested, one in Warm Springs this week, and charged with five counts of second-degree burglary, four counts of first-degree theft, two counts of first-degree criminal mischief and four counts of second-degree criminal mischief. A third is wanted on the same charges, the detective said.

An unidentified woman believed to be the driver of a getaway car is being sought, and security photos of the vehicle were released Friday. Anyone with information was asked to contact Officer Josh Roth or Detective Schulke at 541-475-2424

The detective said Madras Police want to thank the Warm Springs Police Department, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and Jefferson County Adult Probation for their assistance, as well as the Warm Springs and Madras communities for their help in the ongoing investigation.

    1. That would obviously be racist, or something. Or at the very least hurt the perps’ feelings. This is Oregon. We can’t allow hurt feelings of criminals.

    2. Madras PD is still drafting a news release, according to the Sheriff. Although remember the policy of this site is to not name names until after conviction.

      1. You misstate our policy. Many criminal suspects are named before conviction – but after formal charges (which often change from initial arrest), and at a certain level of crime (murder of course) – and yes, there are judgment calls. Always have been.

  1. I called and also messaged Jeffco Sheriff to repost these photos on their Facebook page so the public can actually see them. The above photos are way too small and poor resolution, I don’t know how KTVZ expects for us to identify the rig when they are that small.
    Would be nice if the photos could be clicked upon and expanded up to a larger size for better viewing.
