OSP Response to Oregon Youth Authority MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility Results in Three Males Being Cited For Criminal Charges

Two adult males and a juvenile male were cited and released by Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers in relation to a reported incident on the grounds of the MacLaren Youth Facility near Woodburn.

On February 3, 2014 at about 3:55 p.m., OSP troopers, Marion County deputies, and Woodburn Police officers responded to a call from staff at MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility of a man carrying a rifle dressed in dark clothes and wearing a mask walking outside the perimeter fence of the facility.

Law Enforcement set up a large perimeter around the facility. An officer located three males walking in a residential neighborhood to the north of the facility that were dressed in dark clothing and were carrying air soft rifles.

OSP troopers identified them as KENNETH CHIPMAN, age 19, from Woodburn, DAKOTA STODDARD, age 21 from Oregon City, and a 14 year old male juvenile, from Hubbard. Investigators at the scene determined that the three were on Oregon Youth Authority property outside the perimeter fence having an air soft war game.

During the initial call and investigation the MacLaren Youth Correction Facility was locked down as a precautionary measure. At about 4:20 p.m., the lockdown was lifted.

Both CHIPMAN and STODDARD were cited into Marion County Circuit Court for Criminal Trespass II and Disorderly Conduct II. The 14 year old male juvenile was cited into Marion County Juvenile Department for Criminal Trespass II and Disorderly Conduct II.

OSP was assisted during the incident by Marion County Sheriff's Office, Woodburn Police, and staff from MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility.
