Federal judge springs 12-year fugitive eco terrorist over Covid concerns:
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A federal judge on Friday ordered the pretrial release of a man accused of eco-terrorism as soon as he tests negative for COVID-19.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reports U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken said it has become untenable for Joseph M. Dibee to review discovery and help counsel prepare for trial. Dibee learned he was infected with the coronavirus after he was tested Dec. 21 in Inverness Jail.
Dibee previously turned himself in after having his pre-trial release revoked by a judge, citing the fact he fled to Cuba 12 years ago.
Dibee, 52, was arrested in Cuba in August 2018 on a 12-year-old federal warrant. He was indicted in 2006 in Oregon on charges of arson, conspiracy to commit arson and destruction of an energy facility. Dibee is accused of helping to destroy the Cavel West Inc. meatpacking plant in Redmond on July 1, 1997, and destroying a Bonneville Power Administration tower near Bend on Dec. 30, 1999, though his attorney said Dibee didn’t play a role in the tower vandalism and called that charge “bogus.”
Turncoat girlfriend and the date from Hell:
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Home surveillance video and a witness statement from a woman later arrested helped Washington County deputies find a man wanted for stabbing one person in the early hours of Thursday in Beaverton.
The victim was stabbed several times in the upper body and face around 1:25 a.m. in the 100 block of SW 138th Avenue, authorities said. He told investigators he had just gotten home and met his friend, Katherine Garrido, outside.
As he unlocked his front door, a man rushed up and demanded his wallet. But when the victim said he didn’t have a wallet, the suspect stabbed him and then ran off.
Garrido, 25, told deputies she saw what happened and then left.
About 2 hours later, deputies spotted a Hyundai violating traffic rules and stopped the car on Highway 26 near Cedar Hills Boulevard. Deputies recognized the driver as the stabbing suspect they saw on the victim’s home surveillance.
Stephen Jajeh, 25, was driving Garrido’s Hyundai — and she was in the passenger seat. Deputies said they found a knife with blood on it in the trunk.
Both were arrested. Jajeh and Garrido each face robbery, assault and unlawful use of a weapon charges. Garrido also faces a charge of criminal conspiracy.
The victim was treated at a hospital for his wounds and was released.
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The attempted murder suspect who escaped from Portland Police Bureau’s Central Precinct Saturday night has been captured and taken into custody.
Early Friday morning, 24-year-old escapee David Dahlen was spotted by the United States Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force inside a car at Lents Park on Southeast 92nd Avenue. The U.S. Marshals notified the Portland Police Bureau and authorities immediately sprung into action.
Shortly before 9 a.m., authorities attempted to block the vehicle Dahlen was in. Despite their efforts, the driver of the vehicle — who was not Dahlen — was able to maneuver out of their reach. The car fled from the area, going east on Southeast Holgate Boulevard. PPB officers then set up spike strips down the road, which successfully punctured the vehicle’s tires.
