A 25-year old man wanted on warrants out of Louisiana and Washington County, Oregon was arrested early Saturday morning by Oregon State Police (OSP) and Portland Police Bureau (PPB) during a traffic stop in southwest Portland. The man, who was positively identified with the help of a PPB officer\'s mobile fingerprint identification equipment, was arrested after attempting to flee on foot.
 
On March 3, 2012 at approximately 2:05 a.m. OSP Trooper Travis Neubauer stopped a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria displaying Oregon license plates at SW 60th Avenue and SW Lesser Road for a traffic violation. The trooper contacted a male driver who verbally identified himself, but the trooper suspected he was lying and called for a PPB officer with mobile fingerprint identification equipment to respond to the scene.
 
Using the fingerprint identification equipment, the man was positively identified as MICHAEL ANTHONY COLLIS, age 25, from Estacada. COLLIS had felony warrants for his arrest out of Louisiana and Washington County, Oregon.
 
When the officers advised COLLIS he was under arrest, COLLIS attempted to flee on foot but was captured following a brief foot chase.
 
COLLIS was lodged in the Washington County Jail on the following charges:
  • Fugitive From Justice (Louisiana warrants for Parole/Probation Violation and Fail to Appear Burglary)
  • Washington County warrant Robbery in the First Degree, Robbery in the Second Degree (two counts), Kidnap in the First Degree, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Assault in the Third Degree, and Burglary in the First Degree
  • Washington County warrant Unauthorized Departure and Theft in the Second Degree
  • Probation Violation
 
COLLIS was also cited to appear at a later date in Multnomah County Circuit Court for:
  • Misdemeanor Attempt to Elude on Foot
  • Identity Theft
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Furnishing False Information to Police
  • Driving While Suspended
