Theft arrests during 'Shop With a Cop'
Two men were arrested after trying to steal from an Oregon shop while a police-organized community shopping event was taking place, according to this report:
The two young men stopped, Shane Alexander, 20, of Hillsboro, and Jason Vantress, 30, of Southeast Portland, were arrested and walked back to the store's security office in handcuffs.
"Initially, they said they were freaked out by all the cops there," Simpson said. "But then, they thought it would be a good time to steal, that police would be distracted."
Now officers and store security are scratching their heads.
"Common sense didn't play into their decision-making today," Simpson said.
