PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Police have arrested one of the two suspects who are accused of breaking into the Linnton Community Center over the weekend of October 26-27.
Thirty-two-year-old McKenna Lamson was arrested and now faces burglary and heroin possession charges, said Portland Police on Saturday.
The other suspect is still wanted by police.
The couple was caught on camera breaking into the Northwest Portland community center on NW St Helens Road. The center offers a preschool and programs for students to attend before and after school. It also has a partnership with the Oregon Food Bank.
The couple can be seen in surveillance video using a code the center gives to people in need of spare showers in order to gain access to part of the building. From there, they forced their way into other parts of the center. According to preschool teacher Kate Horan, after the pair entered, they smashed a printer and took a generator but bypassed all of the center’s expensive electronics.
The Portland Police Bureau is looking for the other suspect. If you know anything, please call 503.823.3333.
