On Sunday, December 9, 2018, at 6:40 p.m., Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to an alarm activation from a bait package at a residence near Southwest Tualatin Valley Highway and Southwest 170th Avenue in Aloha. Deputies converged on the area and, within five minutes of being dispatched, used GPS technology to track the stolen package to a black 2015 Nissan Altima in the area.

When questioned, the driver of the vehicle admitted to stealing the bait package from a porch. He disclosed that he delivers for Amazon and had stolen the bait package while he was delivering another shipment to the same address.

The 3SI GPS trackers used for the bait program were purchased with funds provided by the Sheriff's Office Foundation.
