Man Arrested On Drug Charges After Officers Wake Him Up In A Running Car

Milwaukie, Ore. — On July 12, 2023, around 2:15 PM, Milwaukie Police responded to a welfare check at the 12200 Block of SE McLoughlin Blvd. The report involved a male individual found unconscious in a parked car. The officers arrived at the scene and identified the man as Ryker D. Mann, a 30-year-old resident of Oregon City. Mann was seated in the driver’s seat of a running vehicle, which was parked head-in to a parking spot.

During their assessment, the police officers observed drug paraphernalia commonly associated with Fentanyl use both on Mann’s person and inside the vehicle. As per standard procedure for securing a running vehicle with a potentially impaired driver, the officers used a patrol car to pin Mann’s vehicle from the rear bumper. They attempted to make contact with Mann, who woke up and attempted to reverse the vehicle in an effort to drive away. However, the pin prevented him from doing so.

While attempting to detain Mann, the officers noticed a knife in his pocket. Mann resisted the officers, prompting them to deploy a Taser. Eventually, they were able to detain him and place him in handcuffs. In the course of the struggle, one of the officers spotted a loaded 22-caliber revolver inside the car and promptly removed it for safety reasons.

Further search conducted by Milwaukie Officers led to the discovery of another loaded semi-automatic 40-caliber pistol in close proximity to Mann, as well as a bag containing suspected Fentanyl pills, a digital scale, and additional drug-related paraphernalia. The police also learned that Mann is a convicted felon. Subsequently, he was transported to a local hospital due to a reported medical condition. Upon his release from the hospital, Mann was taken to the Clackamas County Jail, where he was booked on four warrants from Clackamas and Clatsop Counties. Additionally, he faces charges including Possession of a Controlled Substance, Interfering with a Peace Officer, and two counts of Felon in Possession of a Firearm.
