[ARCHIVED] EPD and CGPD Teamwork Nets Carjacking Suspects Arrests

On August 8, Cottage Grove Police Department responded to an early morning carjacking. The suspects were reported to have stolen the victim’s vehicle at gunpoint before driving him out of town and taking his debit card and then withdrawing cash. Cottage Grove began working the case and reached out to alert other law enforcement agencies, including Eugene Police.

The next day, at 1 a.m., on August 9, an EPD lieutenant spotted the stolen vehicle on Almaden, between 6th and 7th Avenues. EPD patrol units responded and Cottage Grove Police was called and responded, along with EPD detectives.

The suspects were located at Nite Inn, 1522 W. 6th through detective work. Due to the nature of the involved crimes and possibility of the suspects having weapons, EPD SWAT responded with a couple Crisis Negotiation Team officers and hailed the suspects out of the room. All three were taken into custody without incident.

Cottage Grove PD is continuing to investigate.
