Lincoln City Police arrest three rooftop trespassers

On Tuesday, July 28, at about 9:50 p.m. Lincoln City Police officers were dispatched to the Lighthouse Square Business Complex, located at 4157 NW Highway 101, on a report of three subjects on the roof. 

Because burglaries have occurred where access was made through the rooftop, two officers and a sergeant responded to the location and confirmed there were three people on the roof of the business complex buildings. Officers checking the area determined access was gained to the roof from a metal ladder located on the northeast side of the building.

Due to the safety concerns of an officer in full duty gear accessing the roof from the same metal ladder, an agency assist was requested from North Lincoln Fire & Rescue, who responded with an engine and ladder truck. As the fire department was setting up, one of the three subjects came down off the roof on his own and was immediately secured into the back of a patrol car.  

Using the fire department’s ladder truck, two officers gained access to the rooftop and soon located the remaining two subjects, who were hiding behind a small barrier. They were taken into custody and, with the assistance of fire department personnel, removed from the roof via the ladder truck.  

The involved people were identified as Talon Grant, 18, Tehya Hosier, 18, and a 17-year-old male, all from Lincoln City. Grant and Hosier were subsequently cited for second-degree criminal trespass and released at the scene. The 17 year old was referred to the Lincoln County Juvenile Department for second-degree criminal trespass and was released to his mother.

The Lincoln City Police expressed appreciation to North Lincoln Fire & Rescue for their assistance and rapid response to the scene.
