| Marijuana shop burglary, THC-laced candy bar lead to Washington teen's expulsion: Late-night news r|
And this is what happens when life imitates "Beavis and Butthead."
Who knows if an Elk, Wash., high school student suspected of breaking into medical marijuana dispensary would have been caught?But Spokane County sheriff’s deputies say the kid gave himself away by sharing some of the loco loot. He reportedly gave a classmate one of 38 THC-laced candy bars swiped from the business. Bad idea, dude.From the Spokesman-Review in Spokane: JD’s Garden at 39817 N. Newport Highway reported a commercial burglary March 3, according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. In the burglary, 22 ounces of marijuana, two custom pipes and 38 candy bars infused with THC, the psychoactive element of the drug, were stolen in the burglary, according to the business owner. Later that morning, deputies responded to a drug possession call at Riverside High School, 4120 E. Deer Park Milan Road in Chattaroy. A student there told administrators he’d been given a chocolate bar by a classmate that he was later told was infused with THC. The boy’s mother took him to the hospital, where tests confirmed the drug was in his system.And this is what happens when life imitates “Beavis and Butthead.” Elsewhere in the Northwest:Speaking of pot in Washington, more drivers tested positive for marijuana in 2013, the first full year after the state legalized pot. But there’s scant evidence that legalized weed has resulted in a jump in car crashes. (The Seattle Times)A rape fantasy gone awry leaves Elizabeth Martinez with a criminal record and a $5,000 debt. (The Oregonian)An Idaho couple who were shot by police and crashed their truck into a fence in a Medford neighborhood had been on the run for a slew of crimes for more than a week. (The Mail Tribune)More ammunition for Walmart opponents: Researchers say that whenever the big-discount behemoth opens a new store, the local crime rate almost always goes up. Walmart’s response: “This is a flawed study that relies on outdated information and fails to present the facts about Walmart's positive impact on communities.' (Huffington Post)Does Delhi, India, have the most incompetent cops in the world? A case could be made after police failed to act on any of the hundreds of corruption complaints forwarded to the department watchdog group over eight years. It wasn't a coverup. Apparently, the police lost the computer password to access the complaints. (BBC)-- Joseph Rose

| Rep. Carolyn Tomei, Milwaukie Democrat, won't run for re-election|
Tomei spent much of her time in the Legislature pushing for more controls on the Oregon Lottery, which she blames for addicting thousands of gamblers.
SALEM – Rep. Carolyn Tomei, a
Milwaukie Democrat who pushed – mostly unsuccessfully -- to blunt the Oregon
Lottery's impact on problem gamblers, said she won't run for re-election.
Tomei, who has been in the
Legislature since 2001, joins a growing group of House members who have decided
not to return. Tomei's departure opens a seat that includes parts of Clackamas and Multnomah County.
'I feel really great about
retiring,' said Tomei, who will serve out the remaining 10 months of her term. 'But
when I leave the session, what I remember is what I didn't get done.'
Tomei said she keeps a photo
of a her great-grandson in her office and is looking forward to spending more
time with him.

| Kansas man busted at Boring marijuana grow house found guilty on drug, gun charges|
Kevin Davis claimed he was just visiting from Kansas and didn't know anything about the illegal activity occurring just steps away from his bedroom.
Kevin Tamar Davis When cops busted the illegal marijuana grow house in Boring,
last year, they found Kevin Tamar Davis hiding under a piece of sheet rock in a
crawlspace next to a toilet.
Davis was one of three men who lived at the rural home where
Clackamas County deputies found a sophisticated indoor pot-raising operation.
Davis claimed he was just visiting from Kansas. He said he had
nothing to do with the 84 mature marijuana plants and didn't know anything about
the illegal activity occurring just steps away from his bedroom.
A 12-person jury clearly didn't buy Davis story. Jurors
spent less than two hours deliberating before finding Davis guilty on felony
charges of possessing and manufacturing
marijuana and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was acquitted on a charge of delivering
During the Feb. 2013 raid, deputies found a handgun in his
room: a Taurus Judge, which can fire either
shotgun shells and .45 caliber rounds.
Exactly the kind of weapon a marijuana
grower would use to protect a crop against a home invasion, said prosecutor
Davis, 38, represented himself with the
assistance of defense attorney John Gutbezahl, who provided advice on legal
matters. Davis did a credible job, unlike Quinton Lewis, who recently made a disastrous
attempt at self-representation.
Davis clearly faced a challenge.
Herriott said Davis had to know what
was going on. He admitted that motion-activated surveillance cameras showed him
in a room with monstrously large pot plants, apparently checking on them.
Deputies noted a strong odor of
marijuana that could be detected when the front door was opened. 'You couldn't
be in this house and not know there was marijuana in the house,' Herriott said.
There was marijuana in every room and
Davis possessed trimming scissors coated with marijuana when he was taken into
custody as well as zip ties that were used to secure plant branches when they
became too heavy, Herriott said.
'I'm just a victim of circumstance,'
Davis told jurors. 'I'm at the wrong place at the wrong time.'
Davis said the gun wasn't his.
Investigators never established that he lived at the house. Sure, he was seen
in the grow room, but it's not against the law to look at marijuana plants, he
He did not address other issues, such
as why he gave police an alias, used false identification or why he was hiding in the crawlspace.
Davis will be sentenced on March
19. He also faces charges in Sedgwick County, Kan., where he is
wanted for aggravated indecent liberties with a child. Davis has a felony conviction in Kansas for aggravated battery. -- Steve Mayes

| Kenneth Mroczek gets 7 years in prison for burning down his mom's house, burglary|

Mroczek pleaded guilty in Clackamas County Circuit Court on
Friday to arson and to an unrelated burglary charge. He was sentenced to seven years and two
months in prison.
Prosecutor Bill Golden said Mroczek poured gasoline
throughout the house, which burned quickly.
Just prior to the September 2013 incident, Mroczek told a
neighbor that the next time the neighbor
saw Mroczek's mother's house it would be on fire, Golden said.
During the investigation, Clackamas County detectives
matched Mroczek's DNA to a May 2013 burglary
not far from his mother's home on Southeast McKinley Avenue.

| Milwaukie launches light-rail bond information website|
The bond will cost the owner of a $200,000 home about $36 dollars a year in extra property taxes, the city says.
The city of Milwaukie launched a website this week to educate voters on an upcoming bond measure to pay for the city's light rail debt. The website, milwaukiebond.com, says the $4 million bond will help preserve city services and lock in an interest rate lower than the city's five percent rate, which would save money over the 20 year life of the bond. The measure will appear on the May 20 ballot. The city also touts the benefits of the new infrastructure constructed around the line, including new sidewalks, utilities, trees, trails and more. The total cost of those infrastructure projects is $13 million, the city says. The bond will cost the owner of a $200,000 home about $36 dollars a year in extra property taxes, the city says. The city is currently making payments to TriMet out of its general fund -- about $190,000 last year -- while allowing some staff positions to go unfilled. Though the method is slowing a major loss of services, city leaders know they'll need to make more serious cuts going forward. The yearly payments will continue to rise over the next 20 years, to $365,000.If the measure fails, the city says it would likely have to cut three to four city staff positions a year and reduce services. The city says it already operates with one of the lowest number of employees when compared to other Clackamas County communities, second only to West Linn. -- Michael Bamesberger
