Robert Atkinson, 23, stole a truck and other property from the Cascade School District maintenance yard in Turner, and later another truck parked at a gas station in Stayton, Ore. before the chase began, Marion County Sheriff Office spokesman Don Thomson said.
Investigators said Atkinson broke into the school district maintenance yard and searched many of the district vehicles for valuable items. He stole computers, parts and cables from one vehicle and loaded it all into a maintenance truck, which he then hot wired and stole, Thomson said.
Atkinson apparently sold some of the district property before his next stop at Air Jordan 2s a Bi Mart in Stayton, where investigators said he stole bags of dog food, potting Air Jordan 15s soil and planter boxes that were displayed outside the store. Investigators said he then parked the stolen truck near a Chevron gas station and loaded some of the stolen items into a Ford F150 parked about 1,000 feet away and drove off.

Deputies said Atkinson was driving at 60 70 mph in the small cities.
State police troopers, Stayton police, Linn County sheriff deputies and Forest Service officers joined the chase. Atkinson led Air Jordan 2011 them on several gravel fire roads and jumped from the moving truck near the top of the mountain, where he ran into the woods.

People in prisons all over Oregon get released to their home county, regardless of which prison they’re released from. It’s the Multnomah County Dept. of Community Justice, not the state prison system,that gives parolees 90 days of subsidized housing if they have no place to go when they come home to Multnomah County. The housing is in downtown slingle room occupancy hotel rooms, which is nothing fancy, but still better than Air Jordan Future being homeless.This givesoffenders who want to turn their lives aroundan opportunity to do so, whilethe ones who won’t comply with the housingrules, especially those requiring residents to stay clean and sober, usually end up running amok and committing new crimes. But they can’t claim no one would give them a chance. Multnomah County DCJ provides many services to parolees Air Jordan 14s not just housing to assist them with transition back into the community. Other countys make similarefforts to assist parolees, butmay or may not have as many resources ailable as MultnomahCounty does.There is only one state prison I’m aware of in Multnomah County, the Columbia River Correctional Institut in NE PDX.
