Oregon high school students involved in senior prank must pay for cleanup, may not walk at graduation: principal

Westlake Legal Group Gladstone-HS Oregon high school students involved in senior prank must pay for cleanup, may not walk at graduation: principal Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/west/oregon fox-news/us/education/high-school fox-news/odd-news fox news fnc/us fnc article a8bd5a26-8dac-52bf-996a-5d6206e86bcd

A senior prank carried out by students at an Oregon high school may have cost them the opportunity to walk at their graduation. The principal of the school also reportedly plans to charge each student who was involved about $50 to cover the cost of cleaning up the mess.

The principal of Gladstone High School, about 12 miles south of Portland, said the students illegally entered the school early Friday morning and manipulated a custodian to open rooms for them in order to carry out the prank, KGW-TV in Portland reported.

Once inside the school, more than three dozen students moved hundreds of desks out of the classrooms and into the hallway, the media outlet reported. The students also reportedly replaced erasers with hot dogs.

CALIFORNIA HIGH SCHOOL’S SENIOR ‘PRANK’ REPORTEDLY INVOLVED LETTER MANDATING GENITAL INSPECTION

Gladstone High School’s principal, Kevin Taylor, called the prank a “breach in trust” and said it was “disrespectful” to the staff, in an email he sent to parents on Friday. He wrote that he was planning to charge each of the 44 students involved about $47 to cover the cleanup cost.

“Students were warned during at least two different senior meetings that if they participated in a senior prank consequences could be up to and including students not walking graduation night,” Taylor wrote. “It was also stated that vandalism may be addressed by the police.”

The principal said students, using a ladder, got on to the school’s roof, came into the courtyard and let other students into the building once they were inside. “This is referred to as breaking and entering,” Taylor wrote in the letter.

Once inside, he said, the students “manipulated and abused” the custodian to open rooms for them.

“He thought they were continuing some part of senior events and graduation and a surprise for teachers,” Taylor wrote. “Some students told him the furniture they were moving out would be put back.”

Taylor said students then moved hundreds of desks from classrooms into three different hallways, blocking the halls.

“This year GHS upgraded the cameras and all of the students were easily identified on video,” he wrote in the email.

Taylor added that he and other staff members had to move all the furniture back into the rooms and, as a result, they did not have time to prepare for the day or grade papers.

“Factoring in staff hours and costs to move furniture and reset the building, the total is $2092.32,” Taylor told parents in the email, adding that since 44 students were involved, each student identified will have to pay $47.55 to cover the costs.

“I thought it was a great prank,” Lorrie Dye, a grandmother of one of the seniors involved, told KGW. “It didn’t hurt anybody.”

She added that it would be “terrible” if the students wouldn’t be allowed to walk in their graduation or would have to pay nearly $50 because of the prank.

Taylor wrote in the email to parents, “The final determination of consequences beside cost will be considered over the weekend,” adding that he was consulting with the district office on that decision. “Further information about consequences will be communicated on Monday.”

Neither the school district nor Gladstone High School’s principal or vice principal immediately responded to Fox News’ requests for comment.

An Oregon man was sentenced to four months in prison on Monday for trying to bribe an Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer to deport his wife and her daughter.

Antonio Oswaldo Burgos, 48, pleaded guilty in November to bribing the deportation officer in May 2018, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Oregon said in a news release, citing court documents.

Burgos followed the officer from the ICE office in Portland, where Burgos is located, to Vancouver, Washington, a roughly 10-mile drive north.

He tried paying the officer to deport his wife, whom he met in El Salvador and was divorcing, and her daughter from a previous relationship. The ICE officer declined and reported Burgos.

A week later, the officer, along with ICE investigators, made a recorded call to Burgos, in which he offered $3,000 to force his wife out of the U.S. A similar call took place the following week, and Burgos and the officer planned an in-person meeting.

When the two met as part of the sting operation, Burgos offered $4,000 to the ICE agent to deport his wife and her daughter.

“Attempting to bribe a federal law enforcement officer is a serious crime and will be met with equally-serious consequences,” Billy J. Williams, U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, said in November. “I commend the ICE officer involved in this case for responding to Burgos’ criminal proposition with the utmost level of professionalism and resolve.”

Burgos on Monday was sentenced to four months, and will also serve three years’ of supervised release, officials said.

Oregon man accused of getting revenge on former friend with dog poop ‘bomb’

An Oregon man accused of making a homemade bomb filled with dog feces is facing criminal charges after investigators said a former friend accidentally set it off and got an unwelcome surprise.

Robb Alexander Stout, 48, allegedly rigged a poop-filled toolbox to explode when opened, because he was angry at the ex-friend for not returning something of his, according to a probable cause affidavit.

To make the contraption, he was said to have explored a courtyard area near his house, collecting feces from his dog and other dogs in the area, the Oregonian reported.

3 STUDENTS ACCUSED OF PLOTTING TO BOMB LONG ISLAND SCHOOL USING ‘THE ANARCHIST COOKBOOK’

His ex-friend called police on April 16 after the incident to report that someone had left the toolbox on the back of his Camaro. He suspected Stout, and after opening it, described how the device “exploded with such force that it sounded like an M80 going off and the dog scat was blown out of the toolbox,” according to the court documents.

It appeared the man wasn’t hurt; Stout wasn’t charged with assault and court papers didn’t describe any injuries, according to the Oregonian.

After an investigation, police determined the toolbox was rigged with a battery, wiring, switches and a car’s air bag.

Stout told police the inspiration for this stinky act was a series of prank videos on YouTube the pair used to watch together.

He was booked in jail Thursday and released the same day after posting $2,000 bond.

The next day, Stout was arraigned in Multnomah County Circuit Court in Portland on a felony charge of unlawfully manufacturing a destructive device. The Oregonian reported that police found methamphetamine and a sawed-off shotgun in his home, leading to charges of meth possession, being a felon in possession of a firearm and unlawfully possessing a short-barrel shotgun.

Portland, Ore., police responded to a brawl outside a bar Wednesday night, where members of far-left Antifa clashed with those from the conservative Proud Boys group, according to reports.

People from both sides fought and sprayed bear repellent and pepper spray at each other, the reports said.

The fight happened after a day of generally peaceful May Day protests across the city. Hundreds of people rallied for the rights of immigrants, workers and other marginalized groups, specifically at gatherings in Elizabeth Caruthers Park, Holladay Park and Chapman Square.

FBI PROBING ANTIFA PLOT TO BUY GUNS FROM MEXICAN CARTEL, ‘STAGE AN ARMED REBELLION AT THE BORDER’

No arrests were made and no force was used by police during any of the free speech assemblies, according to a statement late Wednesday from the Portland Police Department.

However, one video posted by a freelance journalist Mike Bivins appeared to show that a woman had been knocked unconscious. The circumstances relating to the video weren’t immediately clear.

In another post, journalist and photographer Andy Ngo claims to have been pepper-sprayed by an Antifa demonstrator. Ngo then appears to drop the camera and fall back before the video ends.

In 2017, 25 people were arrested in Portland after a peaceful protest turned into a riot on May Day, OregonLive reported.

One group assembling Wednesday wore clothes and American flag helmets affiliated with the Proud Boys, Oregon Live reported. Others in the video can be seen wearing all-black attire and bandanas over their faces, a style typically associated with Antifa members.

Police arrived at the bar at 8:30 p.m. to interview witnesses, Oregon Live reported. No arrests were announced related to the brawl.

Antifa — short for antifascist — is the term used for those who say they oppose neo-Nazis, racists and other hate groups. Most recently, the FBI was investigating a possible Antifa plot to buy guns from a Mexican cartel and stage an armed rebellion against U.S. law enforcement at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The Proud Boys describe themselves as “Western chauvinists who refuse to apologize for creating the modern world.” Facebook and Instagram banned the organization in October based on the platform’s policies against hate speech.

Tossed cigarette leads to arrest in cold case rape, murder of Washington woman

Westlake Legal Group tossed-cigarette-leads-to-arrest-in-cold-case-rape-murder-of-washington-woman Tossed cigarette leads to arrest in cold case rape, murder of Washington woman Travis Fedschun fox-news/us/us-regions/west/washington fox-news/us/us-regions/west/oregon fox-news/us/crime/homicide fox-news/us/crime/cold-case fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc c6965a5b-f0ea-5f98-9cda-d83fbc2474b2 article

The smoking eventually did him in.

An Oregon man was arrested Sunday in connection to a cold case rape and murder of a Washington woman 25 years ago after DNA from a tossed cigarette butt led authorities to him, according to officials.

The Vancouver Police Department said that Richard E. Knapp, 57, was arrested during a traffic stop and booked into the Multnomah County Jail before he was extradited to Clark County, Wash. on a charge of murder in the first degree.

Knapp is suspected of killing  Audrey Hoellein (Frasier) on July 17, 1994. Hoellein, who was only 26 at the time of her murder, was separated from her husband and the mother of a young boy.

“I’ve been in contact with the family for a few weeks now, to keep them appraised of the situation. I can’t tell you enough how happy they are that the case is still being actively worked, that an arrest has been made,” Vancouver Police Detective Dustin Goudschaal said at a news conference. “They have been through a lot.”

UTAH NONPROFIT PLANS DNA TESTING LAB IT SAYS WILL ‘REVOLUTIONIZE COLD CASES’ IN U.S.

Hoellein was raped at murdered and even though law enforcement collected physical evidence including DNA at the time, officials said no match was found in the Combined DNA Index System, a national database that contains the profiles of individuals convicted of certain crimes.

“I have to mention in 1994, DNA was still a very early science, so the type of scientific analysis that could be performed at that time was limited,” Goudschaal said.

After investigating several people detectives said the case eventually went cold until 2018, when the DNA was sent to Parabon Nanolabs to create a genetic data profile. Officials from Parabon then submitted the genetic data profile to a public genetic genealogy database for comparison in hopes of finding people who share significant amounts of DNA with the unknown person from the crime scene.

INDIANA MAN SENTENCED TO 115 YEARS FOR 1998 RAPE AND MURDER AFTER DNA BREAKTHROUGH

After narrowing down a list of people, Vancouver Police said they pursued some leads and eventually identified Knapp as a suspect.

When Knapp had tossed a cigarette butt in February, officials collected the item and sent it for testing to the Washington State Crime Lab where DNA was revealed to have matched that of the person at the 1994 murder scene, according to Goudschaal.

The Hoellin family said they were “grateful for the many detectives that have worked on this case,” especially detectives Dustin Goudschaal and Neil Martin.

“This crime not only took away a sister from her two brothers, it left a mother and father without a daughter, and a young child without a mother,” the family told FOX12. “Since then the family has grown with nephews that will never meet their aunt, and a grandchild that can only see grandma in pictures, only knowing her from shared memories.”

Knapp had previously been convicted of sexual assault in 1986 in Clark County, Wash. where he had strangled the victim, according to an affidavit obtained by The Oregonian. Knapp had complied with an order to provide a biological sample, but it was never uploaded to any database and was ultimately destroyed in 2000, the paper reported.

The 57-year-old is expected to make his first appearance in Clark County Court on Wednesday.

Anarchists in Portland, Oreg., flooded the office of a local lawyer representing officers of the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency in an effort to intimidate him.

The city has long been the epicenter of the so-called “Occupy ICE” movement and other anarchist activities, culminating last year in a clash between ICE officers and the protesters who then managed to shut down an ICE facility.

ICE UNION WANTS PORTLAND MAYOR TO FACE CRIMINAL PROBE OVER ACTIONS DURING OCCUPY ICE PROTESTS

A mob of anarchists continued their reign in the city last weekend, pushing a garden hose through the mail slot at the law office of Sean Riddell and flooding the building’s floor and basement, Willamette Week reported.

The water was not discovered until days later, resulting in damage to the property, including its wooden floors, carpet and the ceiling in the basement. The lawyer said the act of vandalism will cost him thousands of dollars to repair, though the cost is likely to be covered by insurance.

Riddell has been representing the National ICE Council, the union for federal immigration officers. Last year the union grabbed headlines after sending letters to officials, asking them to conduct a criminal investigation of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler over his handling of the 38-day Occupy ICE protests in the city last summer.

The group also filed claims that the city’s police declined to intervene and disperse the protesters who were besieging an ICE facility.

PORTLAND ICE FACILITY PROTEST CAMP BROKEN UP BY FEDS AS CROWDS SHOUT ‘NO RACIST POLICE!’

The anonymous anarchists claimed responsibility for the water damage in an email to Willamette Week on Monday, admitting that they did it because of Riddell’s work with the federal immigration agency.

“We decided to congratulate him on his new building by unraveling his garden hose, pushing it through his mail slot, and turning on the water,” the anonymous email read.

It added that Riddell’s office was the target as he bought it with the money he received from representing the ICE union and claimed that this is a warning to other lawyers who are working or are planning to work with the agency.

“Our goal was to cause maximum economic damage, that should serve as a warning to all individuals and businesses that profit off the human misery perpetrated by ICE,” the email added.

Riddell slammed the vandals, telling the Willamette Week that at least he doesn’t hide behind the cloak of anonymity. “When I make a political statement, or when I make a political statement on behalf of a client. I sign my name,” he said.

“I’m not a victim,” he said. “I’m just doing my job.”

A police K-9 in Oregon was in pursuit of a suspect when a porcupine crossed the dog’s path and pierced him with more than 200 quills, authorities said Monday.

Odin, the K-9 officer, was on the trail of a fleeing suspect — identified as 29-year-old Devin J. Wilson — on Saturday when he got in a tangle with the porcupine, the Coos County Sheriff’s Office said. Several of the 200 quills went into the dog’s mouth and two stuck close to his eye.

A county in Oregon has agreed to pay a former employee a $100,000 settlement after she sued the county for racial discrimination because a co-worker had posted a “Blue Lives Matter” flag in an office in support of local police.

The former employee, Karimah Guion-Pledgure, had worked as a corrections technician for the Multnomah County Department of Community Justice since 2011 but agreed to drop her lawsuit and resign as part of the settlement, the Portland Mercury reported, although she will be permitted to apply for another county job.

In her lawsuit, Guion-Pledgure alleged that other county employees had retaliated against her after she complained that the pro-police flag was offensive, the report said.

The plaintiff, a black woman, contended that the phrase “Blue Lives Matter” had co-opted the phrase “Black Lives Matter,” and thus denigrated and diluted the original term.

According to the Mercury, the woman who sued originally protested the flag by displaying photos of people of color who had been killed by police officers. Department managers then asked her to remove the photos but she refused because the pro-police flag was allowed to stay in place.

A county spokeswoman, Jessica Morkert-Shibley, said county officials were working on policy revisions intended to avoid such disputes in the future, the Oregonian reported.

The plaintiff had originally sought $420,000 in her lawsuit, the newspaper reported.

Father gets 2 years in prison after abandoning infant son in woods

An Ohio father has accepted a plea deal that will send him to prison after he abandoned his 1-year-old son in the Oregon wilderness last year with a broken leg, cracked skull and methamphetamines in his system.

Bradley Thomas, the infant, was found by officers in Deschutes County in May 2018 following a massive police search that involved helicopters, officers on horseback and drones. Police at the time said the boy’s father, 26-year-old Brandon Blouin of Belpre, was living with the child’s mother in an SUV in the area and after she walked off, he put Bradley down alone — and naked — as he searched for her.

Medical responders later concluded the boy was suffering from a broken leg and fractured skull, and tests showed meth was present in his bloodstream, according to The Bulletin newspaper. The boy is now said to be living with his grandmother.

Under the agreement reached this week, Blouin pleaded guilty to counts of first-degree criminal mistreatment, endangering the welfare of a minor and being a felon in possession of body armor, and was sentenced to about 2.5 years in prison, The Bulletin reported.

In exchange, Blouin’s attorney admitted prosecutors had sufficient evidence to prove the charges, and three other counts he had been facing were dropped, it added.

The child, after being found about a mile from where the vehicle Blouin was staying in, had been wrapped in a sheriff’s jacket to stay warm. His mother did not face any charges.
