Incident:                            Vehicle Pursuit                                                              

Location:                            Bob Straub Parkway and Main Street

Case Number:                   18-7945

Date/Time:                        September 11th, 2018 @ 01:56 am

 

On September 11th, 2018, at 01:56am, Springfield Police Officers began following a suspicious vehicle that had driven past them erratically while they were dealing with a separate traffic issue in the 4700 block of Main Street.  The driver of the vehicle, David Mark Schieres (43 years), later told officers that he slammed on his brakes and skidded to a stop in the middle of Main St. in order to get the police’s attention. Officers caught up with the vehicle near Bob Straub Parkway and the vehicle fled southbound on Bob Straub Parkway before abruptly stopping near Daisy St. 

 

Schieres began yelling at officers, imploring them to kill him, and he was non-compliant with verbal commands to keep his hands visible.  Schieres eventually locked his doors and fled southbound on Bob Straub Parkway at speeds in excess of 75 mph.  Schieres led the police through Jasper and Pleasant Hill before entering Eugene via Franklin Blvd. Schieres was able to avoid multiple spike strip deployments, but eventually his own poor driving resulted in a deflated tire.  Schieres’ vehicle was riding on at least one wheel/rim by the end of the thirty minute pursuit. 

 

Schieres swerved into oncoming lanes, brake-checked officers, and proudly drank from a can of beer during the pursuit.  Schieres ultimately stopped near 28th St. and G St. in Springfield and exited his vehicle.  He squared off with officers while yelling and ignoring voice commands, and was promptly taken to the ground with the assistance of a police canine.  Once in custody Schieres continued to express his desire to be shot and killed by the police.

 

Thirty minutes prior to the pursuit, Schieres was named as the suspect who broke a residential window at an apartment complex in west Eugene. 

 

Schieres is currently receiving medical treatment for a bite wound, but will be charged with Attempt to Elude a Police Officer, Reckless Driving, Resisting Arrest, and DUII.

Incident:                                       Irma refugee struggles to make Springfield home

Location:                                      Springfield

Case Number:                           

Date/Time:                                   September 7, 2018 @ 8:30 am

Frankie Mayes was given a one-way ticket to wherever he wanted to relocate after the home he shared with his father was filled with flood-waters created when the Category 4 Atlantic hurricane Irma made landfall last year in Florida.  The airfare from FEMA was an opportunity for Mayes to rebuild after the storm left he and his father with the clothes on their backs.  Months later a planned cross-country reunification ended abruptly when his father was killed in a car crash in Georgia. 

 

With nobody to tie him to the east coast, Mayes has decided to make Springfield home, but says that too has been a struggle.  Having visited Medford briefly before the storm, Mayes selected Oregon when FEMA offered relocation travel.  A student at LCC, Mayes has an LTD Bus Pass and uses a skateboard between destinations.  He has found work but housing has been difficult and despite the best efforts of helpful and patient management and staff at the Crosslands Hotel in Springfield, Mayes fell behind on rent. 

 

Previous partners with SPD and the CHETT Program, Crosslands Hotel staff contacted SPD and the CHETT Program helped provide Mayes with some breathing room while he searches for permanent housing and work.

Incident:                                       Labor Day DUII High Visibility Enforcement Results

Location:                                    Springfield

Case Number:                           

Date/Time:                                   September 6, 2018 @ 3:00 p.m.

More Information:                     Lieutenant Scott McKee        

Completed By:                           Lieutenant Scott McKee

 

During two four hour blocks of Grant Funded overtime over the Labor Day weekend, one officer made three DUII arrests (1-alcohol & 2-alcohol/marijuana) during separate encounters in Springfield.  The Springfield Police Department was awarded the DUII High Visibility Enforcement Overtime grant and joined forces with other Oregon law enforcement agencies to crack down on impaired driving over the Labor Day weekend. High visibility enforcement increases the number of officers on the streets aggressively seeking out drunk drivers during typically dangerous holidays. 

 

The Springfield Police Department will participate in a number of high visibility enforcement campaigns over the next year.  Distracted driving, improperly restrained child safety seats and speed are also factors contributing to crash fatalities and SPD participates in public education and enforcement campaigns throughout the year that emphasize public awareness about these factors. 

 

Springfield police ask that if as a motorist, you see a suspected impaired driver, call 911 and monitor the car from a safe distance until police arrive.

Incident:                                       DUII High Visibility Enforcement Overtime grant                  

Location:                                    Springfield

Case Number:                           

Date/Time:                                   August 27, 2018 @ 10:00 p.m.

The Springfield Police Department has been awarded a DUII High Visibility Enforcement Overtime grant and will join forces with other Oregon law enforcement agencies to crack down on impaired driving. High visibility enforcement increases the number of officers on the streets aggressively seeking out drunk drivers during Labor Day Weekend.  The National Safety Council estimates over the past seven years an average of 378 people per year have lost their lives in traffic crash deaths nationally over the heavily traveled Labor Day weekend.   

 

To crack down on drunk drivers, Springfield Police Department will participate in a number of high visibility enforcement campaigns over the next year.  Distracted driving, improperly restrained child safety seats and speed are also factors contributing to crash fatalities and SPD participates in public education and enforcement campaigns throughout the year that emphasize public awareness about these factors. 

 

Police in Oregon make more than 20,000 arrests for driving under the influence of intoxicants each year.  Drug use is more often surfacing as a contributor to impaired driving.  Springfield police offer this reminder, “Any driver who is impaired, regardless of what the influence is, (be it drugs, marijuana or alcohol) face the same criminal penalties and are equally as dangerous on the road,” Springfield Police Officer Joe Burke said.  Burke was awarded the 2017 DUII Officer of the Year by the Oregon DUII Multi-Disciplinary Task Force. 

 

Police remind holiday hosts to be vigilant about impaired guests and help keep them off the road, reminding that drivers don’t have to be falling down drunk to be impaired and that “buzzed” driving is drunk driving. 

 

Springfield police ask that if as a motorist, you see a suspected impaired driver, call 911 and monitor the car from a safe distance until police arrive.

Two Springfield police officers were transported to McKenzie Willamette Hospital this afternoon following physical altercation with an armed felon in the parking lot outside the Motel 6 at 3752 International Court in the Gateway area just after 1:30 pm today. 

 

Police were summoned to the Motel 6 after an employee called to complain that 48 year-old Iosefa Brown of Eugene was cruising the parking lot and refusing to leave after being asked to do so.  Police learned that Brown had been approaching housekeeping staff repeatedly over the past two days in search of a woman accompanied by a dog.  The reason for his pursuit of this woman is still under investigation. 

 

When police arrived this afternoon, they found Brown behind the wheel of a red Nissan Pickup truck, which was parked in a parking space outside a motel room on the east side of the building.  An officer approached Brown in an effort to identify him and investigate the reported trespass complaint.  Brown provided a false name and when the officer began to make further inquiry, Brown locked his door and quickly rolled up his window and attempted to start the truck.  A second officer arrived and police broke the driver window and gained control of the keys.  A struggle ensued and Brown began resisting arrest and assaulting the officers as he reached for and attempted to gain control of a loaded 9mm pistol he had holstered on the right side of his waist on a belt.  As police struggled with Brown and attempted to control his left hand outside the window, brown continued to attempt to gain access to the pistol, which was covered by his jacket.  Officers applied a Taser more than once in their effort to subdue Brown, who appeared to be under the influence of methamphetamine.   The Taser was ineffectual but the officers were finally able to get Brown out of the truck and detain him. 

 

Brown has an extensive criminal history of narcotics and weapons related offenses and is wanted as a Fugitive from Justice for firearms related offenses. 

 

The officers injured during the incident suffered blood exposure, soft tissue and hand-bone fracture injuries during the struggle which lasted over two minutes.  “This is an example of a seemingly benign incident which escalated to a struggle for their lives with a desperate criminal fugitive,” Lieutenant Scott McKee said of the incident at Motel 6 between officers and Iosefa Brown. 

 

Lieutenant McKee said the officer at the door retained control of Brown’s left arm, which likely prevented him from accessing and operating his pistol.  McKee said Brown appeared not to be able to get his hand upon his pistol despite repeated attempts because his coat was in the way and he couldn’t clear it away with one hand.  The officers could not get the driver door open and so they were stuck struggling to retain control of the left arm while the second officer held lethal cover on Brown should he retain control of the gun creating a deadly force threat.  When additional assistance arrived, the officers were able to gain control of Brown and get him into custody. 

 

Brown was also transported by medic to Riverbend Hospital, where he was treated for soft tissue injuries sustained during his arrest. 

 

Brown had not been a paying guest at the Motel 6.

 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Springfield Police Department at 541.726.3714.

NARRATIVE OF INCIDENT:

Springfield police and EMS personnel responded to 9-1-1 reports of a pedestrian vs. motor vehicle crash shortly after 11:30 am (11:34) this morning in the west parking lot to the Bi-Mart Store at 5744 Main Street.  Arriving officers found a 38 year old Springfield woman lying in the crowded parking lot attended to by citizen witnesses who reported the woman was run-over amid a dispute between the woman and the driver of a truck and camp-trailer.  The woman suffered serious injuries after having been run over by both wheels of the tandem-axel camp-trailer and was immediately transported to Riverbend Hospital by emergency ambulance.    

 

Witness descriptions prompted a search of the area for the suspect, who fled the scene of the incident.  Officers located the vehicle parked blocks away in a cul-de-sac behind Splash! At Lively Park -6100 Thurston Road.  The driver was behind the wheel on the phone when he was contacted by police; the truck and trailer hidden from view of the street at the dead end access road. 

 

Officers contacted and arrested Gregory Ivan Reich of Springfield.  Police believe Reich and the woman have been living together as boyfriend and girlfriend in the camp trailer. 

 

Investigators processed the undercarriage of the camp trailer recovering trace and biological evidence from the earlier Hit & Run incident.  The vehicles were towed to a police impound lot for further processing and additional charges may result from the ongoing investigation. 

 

The shocking incident was witnessed by several people in the parking lot and those people are cooperating with police.  One man even chased after Reich a short distance on foot after he drove away.    Still police ask that anyone with information about this incident call Detective Justin Myers at the Springfield Police Department at 541.726.3714.

Incident:                         CHETT Pet Emergency Vet Fund to help Springfield pets in need                               

Location:                        230 4th Street, Springfield

Case Number:                                         

Date/Time:                     06/23/17 @ 1230         

More Information:       Lieutenant Scott McKee         

Completed By:             Lieutenant Scott McKee

 

Springfield police are going public today with their CHETT Pet Emergency Vet Fund for the emergency veterinary treatment of injured domestic pets in Springfield.  City of Springfield employees have contributed to a donation box for weeks to build an initial start-up donation to kick off the fund and now the fund has been established and the police department is ready to accept donations.

 

Last week at the Springfield police sponsored regional K-9 Competition, the McKenzie Cascade Dog Fanciers group of Springfield made a surprise donation to the fund after learning of the developing program and wanting to be among the first to donate.  The group presented a check in the amount of $10,000 to the Springfield police department CHETT Pet Emergency Vet Fund. 

 

Funds from the CHETT Pet Emergency Vet fund will be used by the Springfield police department to help meet the emergency veterinary treatment needs and costs of treatment for companion animal pets that are lost, found, abandoned or feral at the time of their injury in Springfield.

 

The fund will help enable police and Springfield Emergency veterinary staff to create humane treatment decisions for pets injured within the City of Springfield.   

 

The CHETT Pet Emergency Vet Fund was conceived in memory of the late Chester Martin, the namesake behind the CHETT (Community Help Easing Troubled Times) Program.  Chester Martin was a pet lover and had his own companion animal – Lucky, who was at his side when he died in 2016. 

 

Under the program, employees who identify a companion animal pet in need of emergency or critical veterinary treatment, they will notify the on-duty police watch commander, who will assess the proposed or contemplated treatment of the pet and consult with veterinary staff.   On agreement the watch commander will use their City of Springfield purchasing card to address the immediate expense.  Additional consideration will be given to any ongoing treatment costs as well as the amount of funds available within the fund at the time the request is made.   

 

Consideration will also be given to the likelihood of favorable outcomes.  These considerations may include the age of the pet, the expected quality of life for the pet, and the temperament of the pet with respect to suitability for adoption once medically stable.     

 

The Watch Commander will then complete an invoice for the services rendered and reconcile the purchase to the CHETT Pet Emergency Vet Fund.  Generally, individual applications of funds will not exceed $400 per incident.  But supervisors may exceed this limit if circumstances indicate the exception.

Incident:              New Community Assistance Program      

 

Date/Time:         December 16, 2015

 

Completed By: Lieutenant Scott McKee   726-3691

 

 

Springfield police, acting on the suggestion of a Springfield citizen and retired veteran of the United States Coast Guard have established a fund for citizens to contribute money to help ease troubled times for those in temporary need of assistance. 

The CHETT Program (Community Help Easing Troubled Times) is a funding stream consisting of monies donated by the community intended to provide resources to meet the short-term emergency needs of the most vulnerable in Springfield.  Funds from the account are to be used for victims of crime, those displaced by crime or critical incident (including innocent family members of perpetrators), or people in the community with little hope or few options.   Examples of uses could include, but are not limited to; meals, lodging, transportation, crime scene damage repair, and/or other immediate short term emergency assistance. 

The CHETT program is the result of a citizen inquiry from Chester (Chet, wife Carolyn) Martin, a retired U.S. Coast Guard veteran and Springfield resident, who contacted the Springfield police wanting to contribute funds to the Springfield Police Department to be used by officers to help VETS and others in need of temporary assistance in circumstances of crisis or critical need. 

Chet and Carolyn Martin made their initial $700 donation today at the Springfield Justice Center and encourage others to give what they can so police can provide short term assistance at times of critical need to those who may have little hope or few options.  

Officers are now encouraged to consider these funds as a benevolent resource to be used to assist those in critical or emergent temporary need. 

Officers/employees who identify a person in need of short-term emergency or critical assistance will notify the watch commander, who will assess the proposed or contemplated usage of funds and on approval will use their City of Springfield purchasing card to address the immediate expense.  The expense will then be reconciled to the CHETT program fund.
