DA Mike Schmidt provides community update on three recent arrests
PORTLAND, Ore. – Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that three people are being charged following recent instances of civil unrest.
State v. Jacob Camello (C#21CR19781) and State v. Crystal Miranda (C#21CR19782)
Camello is charged with two counts of Criminal Mischief in the First Degree and one count of felony Riot.
Miranda is charged with one count of Criminal Mischief in the First Degree and one count of felony Riot.
It is alleged that on April 24, 2021, law enforcement received information from a witness who saw Camello and Miranda destroying windows at a Starbucks near the intersection of Northwest 23rd Avenue and Northwest Overton Street by throwing large rocks.
It is further alleged that Miranda and Camello were both engaging in violent and tumultuous behavior with a crowd of more than five people, causing a grave risk of public alarm.
Portland Police officers followed Miranda and Camello as they moved through the crowd. During that time, a law enforcement officer saw Camello spray paint a known symbol on a TriMet bus shelter, according to court documents.
Inside Camello’s backpack, police located a can of black spray paint that had been recently used, according to court documents. The damage to Starbucks’ windows is estimated to cost over $1,000 to repair.
State v. Katrina Walker (C# 21CR16637)
Walker is charged with one count of being in possession of a loaded firearm.
It is alleged Portland Police located Walker on March 12, 2021 at approximately 11:45 p.m. in the area of Northwest 14th Avenue and Northwest Marshall Street armed with a Walther PPQ 9mm pistol in a leg holster and a loaded magazine.
Police had closed that specific area of the Pearl District and detained a group of about 100 people to investigate criminal conduct. Police cited and then released Walker.
The District Attorney’s Office initiated this case earlier this month after receiving a criminal case referral packet from the Portland Police Bureau.
No additional information can be released by the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office at this time.
A charging document is only an accusation of a crime. Miranda, Camello and Walker are innocent unless and until proven guilty.
