People arrested are innocent unless proven otherwise in court. Initial charges often change as a case progresses.

Albany Police

Burglary — 10:57 a.m. Wednesday, 2200 block of Waverly Drive. A garage was broken into and tools were stolen sometime after 10 a.m. the previous day.

Linn County Sheriff

Loose sheep — 8:47 a.m. Wednesday, 33900 block of Lake Creek Drive. About 20 to 25 sheep were reported on the road.

Lebanon Police

Robbery arrests — 1:56 p.m. Tuesday, the Dream Closet, 525 Main St.. Matthew Edward Maloney, 32, and Nicole Lynn Downey, 26, both of Albany, were arrested on charges of second-degree robbery and third-degree theft. Both also had several warrants. Maloney was charged with methamphetamine possession, as well. The two were allegedly taking jeans in the store, and a clerk tried to keep them there. Downey pushed the clerk out of the way and she and Maloney ran.   

Broken Bigfoot — 4:56 p.m. Tuesday, 3600 block of Santiam Highway. About four to five people tried to steal a 10-foot-tall wooden statue of Bigfoot on Sunday night, but dropped the carving and ended up damaging it. The suspects drove up in a white pickup with a flatbed trailer. When they were kidnapping the legendary forest creature, witnesses yelled at them, and they dropped the sasquatch. Bigfoot’s arm was broken off, and a leg was cracked, but wood carver Patrick Flanagan said he could fix the statue. He estimated the artwork weighed 1,000 pounds.
