Oregon State Police (OSP), with the assistance of Clackamas County Sheriff's Office (CCSO), arrested a 28-year old man Wednesday night on numerous charges related to an investigation that the suspect shot at another vehicle while traveling on Highway 213 off Interstate 205. Subsequent investigation determined a BB gun was used and the suspect was in possession of heroin. Troopers also confirmed the suspect was a deported offender on felony probation out of Multnomah County following a conviction on heroin-related crimes.
On April 9, 2014 at approximately 10:40 p.m., a 21-year old female called OSP Northern Command Center dispatch reporting that ten minutes earlier a man in a silver Ford pickup fired a BB gun, striking the side of her car after she exited southbound Interstate 205 onto Highway 213 in the Oregon City area. For an unknown reason, the Ford pickup almost rear-ended her car as she exited the freeway and pulled along the passenger side. The male passenger in her car yelled "Gun" when he saw the Hispanic male driver in the Ford pickup pointing it at the car. The car's two occupants both said they heard something hit the side of the car after the man shot a BB gun at them.
As an OSP trooper contacted the complainant in a convenience store parking lot off Interstate 205 to obtain information, CCSO called OSP advising they stopped the Ford pickup on Highway 213 near Molalla.
The trooper responded to the CCSO stop location. The detained driver provided a Mexico driver license that was later determined to be fake with a false name and date of birth. Subsequent investigation also led to the discovery of a BB gun in the pickup, approximately 5 grams of suspected heroin, and over $6,600 cash.
The driver was taken into custody and initially transported to the OSP Portland Area Command office. Upon arrival, he admitted the license was fraudulent and purchased to be used as false identification. The suspect provided another name and date of birth that also proved to be false. He said he was deported over 2 years ago and had illegally returned about a month ago.
After lodging the suspect in Clackamas County Jail, fingerprints were taken and run through the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS). As a result, the suspect was positively identified as DANIEL JIMENEZ-BARRAGAN, age 28, a deported offender on felony probation supervision out of Multnomah County Department of Community Justice (MCDCJ). Prior to learning JIMENEZ-BARRAGAN was back in Oregon, MCDCJ had him listed on "Inactive" status because he was known to have been deported and wasn't actively being supervised but was being monitored in case he returned.
In addition to an ICE hold, JIMENEZ-BARRAGAN was lodged in Clackamas County Jail on the following charges:
* Unlawful Possession and Delivery of a Controlled Substance - Heroin
* Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree
Upon confirming JIMENEZ-BARRAGAN was in custody in Oregon, MCDCJ filed a detainer because of his known probation violation related to the arrest.
