Suspect Arrested For Series Of Armed Robberies In Clackamas County

OREGON CITY, Ore. — A man who was wanted for several armed robberies in Clackamas County last month has been arrested.

Police say the suspect on the night of January 15th walked up to the windows at Black Rock Coffee on Molalla Avenue and Dutch Bros on Main Street in Oregon City and Keller’s Coffee on Highway 213 in Mulino, showed a gun to baristas and demanded cash.  It was later determined the suspect also burglarized the Oregon City Fred Meyer gas station early the following morning.

Michael Robert Frias, 38, was arrested on multiple charges after police found him attempting to break into the night drop box at the Oregonians Credit Union on Molalla Avenue earlier this month while responding to an alarm call.

Frias was indicted last week by a Clackamas County Grand Jury for Robbery I and II, Attempted Assault on a Public Safety Officer, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Burglary II, Criminal Mischief I, six counts of Menacing and Theft II.
