Tigard Police Arrest Apartment Storage Unit Burglar


Tigard patrol officers interrupted a burglary in progress, leading to the arrest of a man on a long list of charges.

Just before 5:30 AM on April 14th, officers were dispatched to a burglary at an apartment complex in the 11900 block of SW 72nd Avenue. The caller reported a man was on video prying storage unit doors open and taking property. When he saw officers responding, the man took off running through a secure parking area, then into a yard and over a fence where an officer safely arrested him.

The man was later identified as Brandon O’Neill, a 33-year-old from Portland. Officers recovered two guns from the car, one of which was also stolen. O’Neill is a convicted felon and is not allowed to have guns. Officers also recovered 17 grams of methamphetamine and 2 grams of ecstasy.

It’s believed that upwards of 20 storage units were broken into by O’Neill.
