Police Investigation

On Tuesday evening, Multnomah County Sheriff's deputie responded to the intersection of E. Larch Mountain Road and E. Historic Columbia River Highway on a report of an illegal roadblock and civilian traffic stop.

Deputies interviewed the driver who reported being followed and blocked by three vehicles on E. Larch Mountain Rd.

After an investigation, deputies issued criminal citations for disorderly conduct in the second degree to three individuals:

• Joshua D. Smith, 36 of Corbett

• Travis Lucky, 18, of Corbett

• Michael G. Meier, 36 of Sandy

The charge requires the individuals to appear in court at a later date.

“The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office will not tolerate this type of illegal activity,” Sheriff Mike Reese said. “If you see this activity or are stopped by a civilian, call 911, and a deputy will respond and investigate. We encourage people to call the Sheriff’s Office to report suspicious activity, and to not take action on their own.”
