by ellen

Florida man accused of reselling stolen rare Nike sneakers out of custody, plans to fight allegatio
Jason M. Keating, 35, of Sanibel, Fla., was released April 17 from federal custody. He is accused of being a frequent buyer of Nike Look See sneakers stolen from the company's headquarters and sold them to businesses across the country. A Florida man accused in the resale of limited-edition sneakers allegedly stolen from Nike headquarters has been released from federal custody, ordered to stay away from persons of interest in the case and not be involved in shoe sales.Jason M. Keating, 35, of Sanibel, Fla., was released Thursday on several other conditions and is scheduled to be arraigned in U.S. District Court in Portland on May 15, court records show.Washington County and federal investigators say Keating was a frequent buyer of Nike Look See sneakers, which are limited-edition shoes or prototypes that are often not mass-produced and are of high value to sneaker collectors. Keating would then resell the footwear to small businesses in Oregon, California, Florida, New York and New Jersey, court documents say.Related: Florida man bought, resold limited-edition sneakers stolen from Nike, court documents sayKeating allegedly paid a source used by a Washington County detective and federal agent $20,000 for a pending shipment of Look See sneakers during a meeting in Portland last month, court documents said. He was arrested in Portland on Wednesday and is accused of receipt of stolen property.View full sizeJason KeatingMultnomah County Sheriff's Office Gerald “Jerry” Needham, Keating's court-appointed attorney, said his client plans to plead not guilty next month.'It's apparent from reading the criminal complaint that Nike clearly has a problem with some of its employees stealing sneakers,' he said Friday. 'Whether or not Mr. Keating has purchased stolen property is a question for a jury on a later date. He has nothing in his background to indicate he has any type of history of conduct like this.'Keating declined comment when contacted by The Oregonian on Friday.Federal investigators say the Nike sample sneakers could range in sale prices between $1,000 to more than $20,000 for collectors. A search of Nike Look See sneakers on eBay Friday turned up a pair of Nike Air Jordan retro 6 for $900, Nike Air Garnett 1 sneakers for $1,100 and Nike LeBron 9 shoes at $20,000 among the results.Nike security officials contacted the Washington County Sheriff's Office in February about the sneaker thefts and identified product manager Tung W. Ho, 35, of Portland, and former employee Kyle K. Yamaguchi, 33, of Portland, as being involved.Greg Fowler, Nike's director of investigations, presented evidence that included photo and video surveillance of Ho stealing sneakers between November 2013 and February 2014, video of Ho unloading large boxes believed to have the sneakers inside at a Portland self-storage facility, emails from Ho and Yamaguchi to several people not Nike employees and other evidence.Ho and Yamaguchi have not been arrested, but the U.S. Attorney's office said the case remains under investigation. Greg Rossiter, a Nike spokesman, said Friday that Ho is no longer a Nike employee.Nike hired Fowler last fall after a 25-year career with the FBI. He retired as Oregon's top FBI official, a position he held from the summer of 2011.Ho and Yamaguchi did not immediately return messages from The Oregonian Friday.Yamaguchi's father said he spoke to his son Thursday night and it was apparent that he was troubled by the allegations.'He was just broken up about all that's transpired,' said Lester Yamaguchi from his home in Texas on Friday. 'But if he's done wrong, we can't help that.'The father said the federal investigation involving his son has the family nervous.'It's something we're very concerned about and we're very concerned about Kyle,' he said. 'Hopefully everything turns out all right for him.'Ho reportedly told investigators that he sold several hundred Look See sneakers by ordering them from a Nike factory in China, having them shipped to him, to either sell them on eBay or to Yamaguchi, who would then resell them to a buyer, court documents said. Yamaguchi told investigators he would sell the sneakers to buyers for 20 percent of the total profit and that Keating was his largest buyer.Ho said he made $15,000 selling the sneakers on eBay and Yamaguchi said Keating would buy the sneakers for $5,000 to $30,000 or more. During an eight-month period between 2012 and 2013, a Chase Bank investigator found transfers and deposits of more than $221,000 between Keating's account and Yamaguchi's accounts. Yamaguchi wrote a total of $104,000 in checks to Ho over a four-month period between 2012 and 2013.Sgt. Bob Ray, a Washington County Sheriff's spokesman, said Friday that this was the only large-scale theft of Nike products from the apparel giant that he remembers his agency investigating. He declined to discuss specifics of the case, citing the ongoing investigation, but described it as an 'extremely unique case.''In general, with any large company, the likelihood for someone to slip through the cracks and steal from the company does unfortunately go up because of the number of employees you have,' Ray said. 'We always encourage these companies to contact us so we can use the tools we have to hold the person responsible for what they've done, but also to help the company keep their product safe in the future.'-- Everton Bailey Jr.

Two released from Clackamas County jail since ruling that county violated woman's Fourth Amendment

Readers think Clackamas County roads could be better, but are not worst: Your comments
A community survey shows that residents likely wouldn’t support a new funding mechanism right now and think roads are in pretty good shape. At the same time, respondents place a high priority on road maintenance -- even higher than in years past. The responses from Clackamas County residents on a scientific community survey show an ambivalence about what the commissioners should do to repair roads.The county board launched an educational campaign in November to see if voters would support a tax or fee to pay to bring county roads up to snuff. The county’s road index shows Clackamas lagging behind comparable cities and counties.A community survey shows that residents likely wouldn’t support a new funding mechanism right now and think roads are in pretty good shape. At the same time, respondents place a high priority on road maintenance -- even higher than in years past.Read the story, first: Community survey: Clackamas County residents think roads are fine, reluctant to pay to fix themMany commenters hit on that ambivalence. Here are a few perspectives:NJAO said: Roads out here are in decent shape as far as maintenance is concerned, and in a heck of a lot better condition than Portland.I live on Redland, drive on L/U Highland, Ridge, Springwater, Beavercreek, Carus, S Central Point, Maple Lane, Bradley, Henrici, etc etc most every day. I'd say they are in fair condition. Main roads like Redland, Beavercreek, etc are in great shape.Ridge Rd has a depression in it that's been there for some time making the road a 1-way yield near the (BLM/FS?) land. But you're talking a road that sees maybe a hundred cars a day if that, so not really a priority.Caveat to that would be the urban areas of CC between Milwaukie and Gladstone, they could use some better road maintenance in those areas between 224 and 99E.Dinoslayer replied: Going to back NJAO on this one.I've lived in rural Clackamas county for a dozen years and I, like NJAO, think the roads in Multnomah county are in worse shape. All of the roads I drive on a day to day basis are in good to excellent shape.Driven Division street in Portland lately? There are sections of that road that are down right jaw jarring when you hit them.Randolph said: This issue has been in front of every commission for the past 15 years, and the voters rejected a version many years ago. The cost of roads has increased dramatically, and the situation isn't about to improve. Costs for adding bike lanes, sidewalks, storm water control, asphalt and labor have all gone up as the problem has lingered. A fee to maintain and repair existing roads will not apply to building new ones.If you survey people about road conditions you'll get one answer. If you ask if they approve of a tax to fix the roads, their responses will differ. Surveys can be misleading because the number of participants is usually small, and the wording of the questions affects the outcome.The county has frequently used urban renewal for new roads, but urban renewal became a cash cow for light rail and other overpriced projects. -- Molly Harbarger

Clackamas County sheriff says jail already released suspected undocumented immigrants
Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts said his office has already released suspected undocumented immigrants from custody in the county jail if there is no warrant for their arrest. The move follows a federal judge's ruling that the county violated a woman’s Fourth Amendment rights by complying with a request to keep her by immigration officials. Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts said his office has already released suspected undocumented immigrants from custody in the county jail if there is no warrant for their arrest. The move follows a federal judge’s ruling that the county violated a woman’s Fourth Amendment rights by complying with a request to keep her by immigration officials.The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office lifted 50 holds since the ruling.U.S. District Court Judge Janice M. Stewart ruled Friday that county officials misinterpreted a request to detain Maria Miranda-Olivares by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as mandatory. The ruling started a ripple effect in the state, causing jails and police to reconsider whether to comply with the ICE detainer requests.The requests to hold inmates in the jail are common, and the county complies, said Roberts in a letter Wednesday. Roberts assumed he had to comply with the requests. “As a result of Judge Stewart’s decision, the jail has already ceased to hold individuals in custody when the only authority for such custody is a request contained in an immigration detainer,” Roberts wrote. “Of course, should my office be informed by any other law enforcement agency that there is a sufficient legal basis for us to hold a person in custody, that there is probable cause for such a detention, we will hold such persons in custody.”The ruling could have national implications, according to Oregonian reporter Andrea Castillo.Read Roberts’ full letter below:Around the country law enforcement agencies routinely receive requests from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency of the Department of Homeland Security, asking that a person currently held in custody on unrelated charges be held in custody for a period of not more than 48 hours, excluding weekends and holidays, beyond the time when the person would have otherwise been released. We are requested to do this so that the Department of Homeland Security may take custody of the person. The requests are routinely based on the fact that the Department of Homeland Security has begun an investigation to determine whether the person is subject to removal from the United States. Although the immigration detainers state that local law enforcement is being requested to hold the person in custody the detainers also state that: This request flows from federal regulation 8 C.F.R. § 287.7, which provides that a law enforcement agency ‘shall maintain custody of an alien’ once a detainer has been issued by [Department of Homeland Security]. Here in Clackamas County it has been my policy to treat these requests as commands from the Department of Homeland Security that we hold in custody those people named in the immigration detainers. The fact that the detainers contain both language of request and command has lead to conflicting interpretations as to whether the immigration detainers provide legal authority for the continued custody of the people named in the detainers. This past week, in a case involving my Office, and specifically the operation of the Clackamas County Jail, U.S. Magistrate Judge Stewart clarified this issue. In her decision Judge Stewart concluded that the immigration detainers are “requests” and that the detainers do not, without more, provide the necessary legal basis, referred to as probable cause, for the Jail to hold the named person in custody. As a result of Judge Stewart’s decision, the Jail has already ceased to hold individuals in custody when the only authority for such custody is a request contained in an immigration detainer. Of course, should my office be informed by any other law enforcement agency that there is a sufficient legal basis for us to hold a person in custody, that there is probable cause for such a detention, we will hold such persons in custody. Sincerely, Craig RobertsClackamas County Sheriff

TriMet police bust man suspected of forging, dealing more than 1,000 fake tickets
On Wednesday night, transit police arrested 39-year-old Efren Escarsega, Jr., who is suspected of possibly forging more than a thousand TriMet passes with stolen ticket stock. So, you know that monthly TriMet pass that you bought from some guy – maybe on Craigslist or at a MAX station – for a too-good-to-be-true price?It may look real, but there have apparently been a lot of forged passes floating around on Oregon’s largest transit system. In fact, on Wednesday night, transit police arrested 39-year-old Efren Escarsega, Jr., who is suspected of possibly forging more than a thousand TriMet passes with stolen ticket stock.View full sizeEscarsegaMCSO  Escarsega’s arrest came “after a complicated and lengthy investigation into reports of forged passes in the past several months,” said TriMet spokeswoman Roberta Altstadt. “Officers used security cameras and footage, and conducted plainclothes and undercover missions to track down the suspected source of the fraudulent tickets.”The Transit Response Team, formed in spring 2013 to conduct more in-depth missions with officers in both uniform and plainclothes, made the arrest.Police served a search warrant on a unit at the Central City Concern’s Estate Motel, 225 N.W. Couch Street in downtown Portland. Investigators recovered a stack of stolen TriMet ticket stock and a monthly pass that they believe was used to make the fraudulent fares. “The ticket stock is several years old and would have been used in a ticket vending machine,” Altstadt said. “How the stolen ticket stock was obtained is still under investigation.”Typically, a stack of stock has about 2,100 blank tickets, she said. Transit police recovered 634 blank tickets. An authentic monthly adult pass sells for $100.Escarsega was arrested and charged with multiple crimes, including first-degree theft and conspiracy to commit forgery. He was booked into the Multnomah County Jail. Fare inspectors and operators are trained to spot counterfeit tickets. But the ones allegedly used by Escarsega “are more tricky to spot since they aren't counterfeit rather forgeries,” Altstadt said. “But there are some specifics that they look for to distinguish real tickets and passes.” On the streets, TriMet tickets are often used as black-market currency. In 2011, I wrote a column about how crooks have laundered money with transit tickets. -- Joseph Rose

Medical marijuana dispensary moratoriums approved in Gresham, Fairview
Troutdale City Council members appear poised to follow suit at their meeting next Tuesday, after supporting a similar ordinance during a first reading April 8. As expected, the city councils of Gresham and Fairview have adopted one-year moratoriums on medical marijuana facilities.The Gresham City Council on Tuesday afternoon approved the moratorium, recently allowed under state law, with a unanimous vote following no more discussion. The council had signaled its support last week during discussion at the ordinance's first reading.Fairview's council did much the same during a work session Wednesday night, unanimously passing an emergency ordinance after a public hearing with no testimony.Troutdale City Council members appear poised to follow suit at their meeting next Tuesday, after supporting a similar ordinance during a first reading April 8.Wood Village was the only east Multnomah County city where at least some council members seemed willing to consider allowing marijuana businesses. But the council ended up voting 3-1 last week for a moratorium. Like many cities and some counties across Oregon, Wood Village opted to impose a moratorium while legal issues are sorted out.Marijuana use remains illegal under federal law, but the Obama Administration has largely taken a hands-off approach in states that have legalized the drug for medical or recreational use. State lawmakers, meanwhile, so far are not allowing cities and counties to impose permanent sales bans.Previously, Gresham and neighboring cities blocked dispensaries through their business license rules or zoning ordinances that required business to comply with all state and federal laws.East county residents with a medical marijuana card still have ways of obtaining cannabis, including buying it from dispensaries already operating in Portland, which is among cities that have not tried to block sales.-- Eric Apalategui
