West Linn Historical Society hit by theft

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- A man stole a Mini Cooper from a family and stole a suitcase, overalls and items from the West Linn Historical Society before he was found on Tuesday morning inside an old West Linn fire station with a gun located inside his pocket, according to West Linn Police. 

Police arrested Roger Shane Womack, 33, walking with 2 suitcases, was arrested on West A. Street.

Members of the West Linn Historical Society confirmed the suitcases, with costumes inside, and the overalls Womack was wearing when arrested belonged to them.

"Apparently, according to West Linn PD, we had someone come in and visit and do a little shopping," said Danny Schriber with the West Linn Historical Society.

Police said there were 3 other reported car break-ins between the address of where the Mini Cooper was taken and where Womack was arrested. He was found with multiple sets of keys, a wallet and a knife from the other break-ins. 

On the way to Clackamas County Jail, police said Womack damaged the patrol car's door by repeatedly kicking it.
