PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – A 20-year-old man arrested for swiping a case of beer from a distributor outside a convenience store in Cedar Hills early Thursday morning had his pet mouse in his pocket when police stopped him.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office reports that a little before 6 a.m., a distributor was stocking beer at a Plaid Pantry located at 14140 SW Butner Rd. when he noticed a man grab a case of beer and run behind the store.
The distributor confronted the suspect, who allegedly threw the case at him and fled. The distributor was not injured.
The suspect allegedly ran south of the Nike campus. Sheriff's deputies and Beaverton police responded and eventually caught the man, identified as John Jacobson of Portland, hiding in some bushes on the Nike campus.
Jacobson was also suspected in a separate beer theft earlier that day.
According to Sgt. Bob Ray, a sheriff's office spokesman, Jacobson had a pet mouse in his pocket when he was apprehended. Deputies had to call Jacobson's father to come pick up the mouse.
He is lodged in the Washington County Jail on two counts of third-degree theft and one count of third-degree robbery. His bail was set at $20,000.
