[ARCHIVED] More Street Crimes Unit Response and Arrests

On April 23 at 7:50 p.m., Street Crimes Unit officers observed Brittney Nicole Langston, age 29, walking south on Candlelight Drive near Welcome Way. They were aware of some property and drug-related cases in which there was probable cause to arrest Langston, and there were Attempts to Locates issued for her by an EPD detective and an EPD officer. She was arrested on 19 counts of Mail Theft, Unlawful Possession of Heroin Felony, Unlawful Possession of Schedule IV, Criminal Possession of Forged Instrument in the First Degree, Aggravated Identity Theft, and Theft in the Third Degree. Langston was in possession of more than three grams of heroin and more than a gram methamphetamine when she was contacted by SCU officers. One of the cases involved the theft of an Amazon package that was shipped to a Eugene resident’s front porch and was then stolen. 19-05166, 19-01362, and 19-06043

 

SCU officers have been paying attention to a residence in the 2300 block of Augusta due to frequently seen, short-stay traffic, which can be an indicator of drug activity. Area residents had reported this on the EPD drug tip line and SCU followed up and made two arrests while also observing several individuals coming and going from the location who are linked to property crimes and drug crimes throughout the city.  Due to the increased presence by SCU and concerned neighbors, the property manager  evicted all of the tenants. 

 

On April 23, at 5:46 p.m., an officer observed David Henry Storey, age 45, of Junction City, driving a vehicle with switched plates in the W. 11th and Acorn Park area.  One of the SCU officers conducted a traffic stop.  Storey had a warrant and was in possession of a restricted weapon and methamphetamine. The vehicle was impounded. Storey was charged with  Unlawful Possession of  Controlled Substance Methamphetamine, Felon in Possession of a Restricted Weapon (dagger), and Contempt of Court Warrant (Linn County). He was cited for Switched Plates. Storey also had a handgun replica (BB gun) on the driver’s floor board.  Case 19-06035

 

Eugene Police Street Crimes Unit

The SCU has been focusing on prolific offenders, who are identified through intelligence-based policing, public tips and other sources. They have been proactively responding across the city to quality of life issues as they arise, using all available resources and partners such as community groups, neighborhood associations and city services. 

 

The unit makes a dynamic difference in a variety of public safety issues including on emerging crimes and neighborhood livability issues. This team creates capacity within the organization to address and solve problems throughout the city of Eugene. SCU is a tangible outcome of the one-time,18-month bridge funding by Eugene City Council that is dedicated to targeting immediate and acute community safety system issues while working toward mission-critical enhancements that need to be addressed through a longer-term and broader community safety initiative. The unit currently consists of a lieutenant, a sergeant and four officers. The team will expand to include another sergeant and four additional officers as staffing allows.
