PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Three Portland-area people were arrested for multiple different charges after they were seen walking away from a reported stolen truck in a parking lot in Cornelius.

On Saturday morning, the arresting officer, according to a release from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, thought a truck in a Cornelius parking lot looked “suspicious” and decided to check it out. About 20 minutes later the officer learned the truck had been reported stolen from a construction site in Beaverton.
