I recently received this information from a cabin owner.
The tool shed next to our house on Road 9 was broken into sometime after May 6th. They pried open a side window in an attempt to bypass the alarm system, and quickly made off with a couple pair of snowshoes and an axe. Not much else of value in there for them to steal. This is the first break-in at our place since installing an alarm system in 1981. Our house, as well as the neighbors house and shed, were unscathed. Not sure of the exact date that Jason Stidham was apprehended in Clark County with a van full of stolen items from cabins in Rhododendron, but there likely are other miscreants roaming around out there. Just because this one guy was busted doesn’t mean we should ever let our guards down.

There was a sticker on the window that says the house and premises are protected by an alarm company.
Taken along with two pairs of snowshoes, were a short-handled ax, and a floater tube for fly-fishing. This was reported it to the Clackamas Co. Sheriff’s office. They took a report and gave a case number. The burglars left behind on the steps one of their loppers and a pair of black swim fins (not theirs). Previous to this, they took some crayfish traps from this cabin.
This is an indication that we still need to be vigilant and look out for our neighbors and report any suspicious happenings.
