Police Log


Elude — 8:35 p.m. Saturday, Olive Street, Lebanon. A Salem man was arrested on several charges after running from a traffic stop in Lebanon on Saturday night. Sgt. Patrick O'Malley gave this account:

A box of items purchased from a yard sale slid from the back of a 2004 Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck and spilled onto the road. The driver and passenger got out to pick them up, and O'Malley stopped to help. O'Malley began to cite the driver for having an unsecured loan and said the driver gave him a false name and then ran away. 

About seven-tenths of a mile down the road, the man ran into some bushes. O'Malley said deputies with the Linn County Sheriff's Office responded to help with a perimeter, and about an hour later, the man surrendered. Brenton Greiner, 35, of Salem was taken into custody on an unrelated warrant from Marion County and new charges of attempt to elude (felony), attempt to elude (misdemeanor), reckless driving, reckless endangerment and giving false information. The passenger, Robert Vincent, 46, no listed address, also had an outstanding warrant.

Deputies arrested Jaylynne Nelson, 28, of Lebanon on charges of second-degree burglary and second-degree criminal mischief and menacing. Sgt.
