Detectives seek additional victims of five Portland metro area child predators

On September 1, 2022, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office conducted a child predator sting where police used a variety of social media platforms to pose as underage boys and girls. The people contacted the undercover investigators online and offered to meet a person they believed to be a child for s*x. When the people arrived to meet the child, they were instead contacted by law enforcement and arrested.

During the mission, multiple people immediately ended their conversations once they learned the person they were talking to identified as a minor.

The Sheriff’s Office regularly conducts undercover operations, both full-scale stings and day-to-day chats, targeting child predators. Parents are encouraged to help their children be safe online and to be aware of the websites and mobile applications their kids are using. The Sheriff’s Office provides online safety education for parents and community organizations.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Lake Oswego Police Department for assisting with the sting.

The following people were arrested for the felony crimes of luring a minor and online s*xual corruption of a child in the first degree:

Chad Leonard Gruelle, 41, of Washougal
Nicholas Smith, 25, of Vancouver
John Bucher, 55, of Hillsboro
Aubrey Quinn-Ward, 25, of Portland
Michael David King, 23, of Beaverton

Detectives are concerned there may be more victims of these five individuals and are asking anyone with additional information to call the Sheriff’s Office at 503-846-2700.

'Rainbow" Fentanyl Recovered in Tigard

A newer form of powdered fentanyl that is often referred to as ‘rainbow’ fentanyl was recently recovered by the Tigard Police Department.

This form of the drug, which resembles sidewalk chalk, has been in the news recently, both in the Portland metro area and across the country, as it continues to emerge in a growing number of communities.

In Tigard’s recent case, officers were called to a suspicious person around 11 PM on August 10th, where a witness in the 7600 block of SW Hunziker Road reported a man on top of a car, who was screaming and acting erratically.

Responding officers learned the man had several warrants out for his arrest and took him into custody. While searching him, officers recovered 5.5 grams of ‘rainbow’ fentanyl.

According to a Tigard Police Detective who serves as a Task Force Officer with the Drug Enforcement Administration, ‘rainbow’ fentanyl is cut with various unknown materials and mostly comes from drug cartels in Mexico that ship it north. A couple of pounds of pink fentanyl powder was recently seized by a local DEA team.

This comes on the heels of a significant increase in fentanyl pills on the streets, known as M30’s. So far in 2021, fentanyl has been documented in 70 Tigard Police reports. In comparison, it was only mentioned in eight TPD reports in all of 2020.

Any form of fentanyl can be potentially deadly, and this is no exception. ‘Rainbow’ fentanyl is especially concerning because anyone – especially children – could mistake it for chalk. If you come across a substance like this, don’t touch it. Please report it by calling 911.

“We are concerned about the availability of fentanyl in our community and the increasing number of overdoses across the region,” said Washington County Health Officer Dr. Christina Baumann. “If you use, know that the strength of the drug varies, and the risk of overdose is high. Don't use alone. Carry naloxone – it could save a life.”

Naloxone is available at local pharmacies. Additional resources are available on Washington County’s harm reduction website at https://bit.ly/wc-harm-reduction.

If you need help for yourself or a loved one, the Washington County Crisis Line is answered 24/7 at 503-291-9111.

Thank You, Tigard P.D.!

This is an example of what our officers work hard to take off the streets.

This morning around 1 AM a traffic stop led to the recovery of a loaded gun with an extended magazine and no serial number from a man who is a convicted felon and isn't legally allowed to have guns. Officers also recovered loose ammunition, fentanyl pills, m**h and needles.

Additionally, the driver had a warrant out for his arrest and a suspended license. One of his passengers also had an arrest warrant and they were both taken to jail.

Thank you, patrol officers!

Some great advice from our friends at the Sherwood Police Department! :-)

We kindly request that anyone thinking of doing criminal things this weekend to please stay inside and not be crimey. Have a water balloon fight. Eat some ice cream.

It’s too hot for you…it’s too hot for us. Let’s pick it back up next week when it’s not 100 degrees.

Don’t mind us, we’re just cooking up some brunch on the parking lot pavement. We might try cookies in the patrol cars next.

We hope you have an eggcellently cool weekend 😎.

MACDUFF FAMILY REACHES $3.8 MILLION SETTLEMENT WITH CITY OF TIGARD

[WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT]

Maria Macduff announced her family has reached a settlement of $3.8 million with the City of Tigard over the shooting death of her 26-year-old son, Jacob Macduff, by Tigard Police on the evening of January 6, 2021

"We now know what I believed all along — there is no way my son Jacob should have been shot and killed that night," Maria Macduff said in a statement. "My deepest desire since this happened has been to do everything possible to make sure no other family loses a child the way I have. I believe we've accomplished that."

As part of the settlement, the City of Tigard has made and has agreed to continue to make changes in police policy and training to prevent another unnecessary death of a person in a mental health crisis.

The settlement also provides that the City of Tigard will cooperate in an independent critical incident review and analysis of the police actions that resulted in Macduff s death and the post-incident steps taken by the City of Tigard in the wake of the death. The report of that independent review will be made public upon its completion.

Look for an upcoming full story on our website (tigardlife.com) or in the next issue of Tigard Life.

For those of you with pets, needing shelter from the sun:

Washington County has opened a pet-friendly cooling space at the Salvation Army located at 1440 SE 21st Avenue in Hillsboro. The air-conditioned facility will be open until 9 p.m. tonight.

Washington County staff will be on hand to offer support to people with pets. Washington County Animal Services can provide crates, leashes, cat litter supplies, and food and water bowls if needed. Animals must remain in their crates while not using the relief area, and at those times, must be on a leash and with their person. Domestic animals only; no farm or exotic animals.

Pedestrian Death Under Investigation

On Saturday, July 23rd at 7:28 PM, officers responded to the crash on SW Gaarde Street west of SW Pacific Highway. Officers learned a 62-year-old woman who was driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee was heading westbound on Gaarde when she hit a pedestrian, who died at the scene.

The pedestrian has been identified as 82-year-old Procoro Hidalgo-Lazaro of Tigard. His family has been notified of his death.

The driver stayed on the scene and cooperated with the investigation. It does not appear that speed or impairment played any role.

Investigators believe this was a tragic accident and that the glare of the sun may have been a contributing factor in the crash. Mr. Hidalgo-Lazaro was not in a crosswalk when he was hit. At this time, the driver is not being charged with a crime and, as such, is not being identified.

A GoFundMe fundraiser has been set up for the family by Stacey Clark, owner of Clark Lumber in Sherwood:

On July 23rd, 2022, Procoro Hidalgo was struck and killed by a motorist in Tigard, OR. Procoro leaves… Stacey Clark needs your support for Procoro Hidalgo

I came across an unexpected and very nice public installation celebrating some people important to the history of a small town next to Portland. The two installations are about 200 feet apart along a walking and biking path just north of Main Street in Tigard, Oregon. The first I approached is the one for Evangelina "Vangie" Sanchez, a Latino community advocate and promoter of meeting the needs of migrant children. The second is for John and Annie Cash, a Black Pioneer couple who remained in Oregon despite its Black exclusion laws (the last one was not repealed until 1926). I appreciate seeing any public entity going deeper into the history of Oregon, especially the hidden history. Doing so in such a beautiful way deserves commendation. https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=10225692491159799&set=pcb.10225692517640461

I have a few goals this year and I am hoping the lovely Tigard community can help me accomplish them. 1. Learn ALS (my boyfriend and I would like to learn together) 2. Learn piano ( I have a full size keyboard at home) I learn best with hands on. Anyone teaching these specifically for adults?

Sorry if this is not the right place, but does anyone know where the best place in tigard is to get a kitten spayed? I don't have a whole lot of money at this moment, so I am worried for the cost a bit but this is som**hing that we need to do. Please and thanks you!
I am looking to put together a gift basket for my company employee's (5 of us) and fill it with stuff from local Tigard business whether that be giftcards or actual items. EDIT: Anyone making like DIY gingerbread house kits? I am already looking at getting gift cards for Versus Board Games.
