Portland Police Investigating Major Vandalism to Sunnyside Neighborhood Bank
Portland Police Bureau– 02/29/12
I would like to take a moment and point out that Banks are obvious targets. There are many corporations out there that are destructive to Americans. One is the Educational system such as Unversities, who actively promote H1-B workers, open borders and Amnesty, all resulting in the break down of the US.
Then there is the Oregon Nursery Industry, that actively lobbies for Amnesty, and unlimited mexican migrants . The Mexican Illegals imported and hired by the Nursery Industry( I am including the wine industry and those who grow strawberries and apples) remained and took over Woodburn, Canby, Forest Grove etc , those Mexicans brought gangs and the Mexican Drug Cartel to Oregon. They also brought a huge welfare burden to Oregon Taxpayers. The Occupy Movement is for open borders amnesty and hasn’t got a clue about the cost of the invasion.
So look a little deeper fools, you are surrounded.
On Tuesday February 28, 2012, at 10:21 p.m., Portland Police officers assigned to Central Precinct responded to a premise check at the U.S. Bank branch located at 1225 Southeast Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard. Apasserby called to report the glass front door of the bank shattered.
Officers arrived and found multiple windows and glass doors broken as well as ATM’s and large rocks both inside and outside the bank. Officers cleared the bank to make sure there were no intruders and called for a responding party to come to the bank to begin securing the location.
At the time of the incident, there was no suspect information. Officers will be working with bank security to recover any possible video evidence.
Media outlets reported to police that an email was received from a group claiming responsibility for the vandalism. The email states:
“Communique for Night of 2/28”
“Author: Some Of Those Responsible”
“About an hour and a half ago (around ten pm, Tuesday night) a group of anticapitalists rolled up on the US Bank at SE 39th and Main and smashed out its windows and ATMs.
“This was done in preparation for February 29th’s Shut Down The Corporations Day. We chose a bank because banks have upheld the sanctity of capitalism, making it possible for a few people to accrue copious amounts of wealth. This was also for the role the banks have played in the current financial crisis and the level of environmental destruction they have supported. These banks are responsible for throwing poor and oppressed people the world over under the bus of extreme poverty and destitution. They did this all to keep the pockets of a few rich CEOs lined with extravagant bonuses, and it’s time we started taking from those pockets.
“We also did this to remind #Occupy to keep its horizons open. Rather than resort to the gory analogy about cats, we prefer to say they’re more than one way to shut down a corporation. Parades through the city may be able to accomplish this task on occasion, but at the end of the day there’s really no replacement for a few dozen folks in masks with rocks. We don’t know whether this will be taken as solidarity or antagonism by the core of Occupy, but frankly that isn’t worth dwelling on for us. You said you wanted to help shut down corporations, and we helped to do that in our own way. Take it or leave it, we’re going to keep doing it.
“Good night, Occupy, and good luck tomorrow.”

SHERIDAN SEARCH WARRANT UNCOVERS LARGE SCALE INDOOR MARIJUANA GROW
On February 28, 2012 at about 6:20 hours, the Yamhill County Interagency Narcotics Team (YCINT) served a search warrant on a Sheridan residence which housed a large scale indoor marijuana grow. The search warrant was part of a joint case with the Portland Police Bureau’s Drugs and Vice Division (DVD) and the only connection known in Yamhill County at this time.
The residence in question, located at 348 NW Gardner Street, housed a sophisticated hydroponic marijuana grow system that took up the entirety of the house. Bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms had been converted to house different stages of marijuana gardens from starter seedlings to plants nearing harvest. 544 plants were recovered in all with a street value of over $500,000.
Power to the residence was being stolen and diverted, resulting in a tangled web of makeshift wiring throughout the house. Ventilation holes had been cut in floors, walls and ceilings, pesticides and fertilizers were found throughout the structure, and black mold was prevalent on walls and ceilings.
Sheriff Jack Crabtree, who surveyed the scene shortly after the warrant, was concerned about the damage to the residence and potential safety risks to the neighborhood. “This group of criminals clearly had no regard for the owners of the property they were renting, or the safety of the surrounding neighbors. They placed themselves and the community in a great deal of danger with this operation.”
Taken into custody at the scene was Wei Song Zhao, 49 years of age of the Gardner Street address. He was lodged at the Yamhill County Jail on charges of Unlawful Manufacture and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana and his bail is currently set at $30,000. Additional drug and theft charges are expected.
The case is ongoing and additional arrests are expected.
YCINT was assisted by Portland General Electric, the Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office, The Oregon State Police, and the McMinnville Police Department’s Tactical Support Team.
Anyone with information on this case or any similar case is encouraged to contact Sgt. Chris Ray of YCINT at 503-472-6565.
Members of the media seeking further information may contact Sergeant Chris Ray at 503 434-7344.
