PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A person previously charged with riot-related crimes in downtown Portland is now facing new charges for a burglary this week.
Jarrod DeFerrari is accused of burglarizing and damaging a building on SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy earlier this week. DeFerrari is facing criminal mischief, interfering with a peace officer, possession of burglary tools, criminal trespass, burglary and contempt of court.
The 24-year-old from Florida was previously charged with using a hammer to smash windows of the St. Andre Bessette Catholic Church in November 2020.
