[ARCHIVED] Street Crimes Unit Recovers Two Stolen Vehicles from Same Street

SCU News

Yesterday, February 18, at around 11 a.m. Eugene Police received a report from a Eugene man that he has discovered his 2020 Hyundai Tucson had been stolen from a gated parking lot behind his residence in Downtown Eugene. 

 

Around 5 p.m., later that same day, two Eugene Police Street Crimes Unit officers were working in the area of Ed Cone and Owen Loop after receiving information this area has had some criminal activity and presence of stolen vehicles. They spotted the stolen Hyundai. As they were watching to Hyundai to see if there was a person associated with it, they saw another occupied vehicle, a 2017 Toyota Corolla, that had been previously reported stolen from the 3600 block of W. 13th in a separate case reported February 6. The Toyota hatchback arrived in the area and dropped someone off.  Other SCU officers arrived to assist in a high-risk traffic stop of the Toyota at 18th and Willow Creek. The driver, Terrence William Stevens, age 24, was taken into custody without incident and lodged for Unauthorized Use Motor Vehicle for the Toyota. During processing and recovery of the Toyota, officers found a small, user amount of heroin, a glass pipe and a key chain with multiple vehicle keys and a key fob to a Dodge Ram . 

 

SCU officers then eventually recovered the Hyundai for return to its owner, after waiting to see if anyone approached to drive it. During recovery and processing, officers found the car’s wiring harness had been disconnected, so the officers helped the owner reconnect it. The owner discovered a considerable amount of camping gear had been stolen from the car’s trunk.
