PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Equipment was stolen from a United States Marshals vehicle early Tuesday morning, officials confirmed.
The theft occurred around 3:15 a.m. in the area Grant High School in Northeast Portland. Supervisory Deputy Eric Wahlstrom said it appears the theft was random and occurred while the deputy was working in the area.
The suspect broke a window to the unmarked vehicle and took a police vest that had some equipment attached. No firearms were taken, Wahlstrom said. Deputies are working to confirm the specific items taken. Police on scene said suspect got away in a SUV.
Portland police and the Marshals looked for the vehicle but were unable to locate it. The investigation is ongoing.
The vehicle in question is likely an early 1990s gray 4-door Toyota 4Runner with faded paint and a loud muffler. It may have a lifted suspension with aftermarket wheels and tires, and may have chrome striping around the bottom. There also appears to be a drop-down trailer hitch on the back, authorities said.
Anyone with information on the case is urged to call non-emergency dispatch at 503.823.3333.
