On Sunday, November 28, 2021, at 5:25 a.m., Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to an armed robbery at the ARCO at 15320 NW Cornell Road in the Enhanced Sheriff's Patrol District (ESPD) community of Oak Hills. An employee called 911 to report that the store had been robbed at gunpoint. Four people wearing masks and gloves robbed the store and fled on foot.

With the help of the Hillsboro Police Department and a Beaverton Police Department K9, deputies were able to locate two of the suspects.

Both suspects were detained and now face charges of robbery in the first degree.

Due to their ages, none of the juveniles will be identified. Both were lodged at the Donald E. Long Detention Center in Portland.

Detectives from the Washington County Sheriff's Office Violent Crimes Unit responded to investigate the robbery. Detectives believe that juveniles are linked to two other similar robberies. If you, or someone you know, have any information to share, please call the Washington County Sheriff's Office at 503-846-2700.

The Enhanced Sheriff's Patrol District (ESPD) provides law enforcement services for more than 237,000 residents in the urban areas outside of cities in Washington County, including Bethany, Cedar Mill, Cedar Hills, Aloha, Reedville, Garden Home, Metzger, Rock Creek, Raleigh Hills, Bull Mountain, Bonny Slope, West Slope, Oak Hills, and more. Voters first approved the ESPD in 1987 and all local option levies since then.

Members of the Violent Crimes Unit are called upon to investigate serious violent crimes such as homicides, suspicious deaths, adult sexual assaults, kidnappings, robberies, extortion, serious assaults, elder abuse, and missing persons.

The investigation is ongoing; more information may be released as it becomes available.
