Lane Co. SO Reports (2), May 21

Multiple Thefts, Lane Co.
Branden Paul Sherrill, 41, is facing multiple criminal charges from cases spanning across Lane County. During the 2024 ice storm, Sherrill took advantage of the power outage to break into the Shotgun Park maintenance headquarters near Marcola. Sherrill stole a dump trailer, various tools, and power equipment. He then returned for a second burglary, stealing more tools from a storage shed and yard (LCSO Case #24-1680). On April 17th, an area resident of Richardson Upriver Road near Linslaw discovered three wooden utility poles had been cut down and a half-mile of telecommunications line stolen. A tow strap was used to pull down the line, and a remnant of the tow strap was still attached. The following week on April 24th, a deputy patrolling the area observed a vehicle with tow straps tied to the hitch and conducted a traffic stop. One of the tow straps matched the segment of strap found on scene (LCSO Case #24-1978). Sherrill was identified as the suspect. During that stop, evidence regarding the theft of two yellow BLM gates and one white Weyerhaeuser gate was also discovered (LCSO Case #24-2084). These gates had been cut up and stolen April 21st and scrapped at a local metal recycler on April 22nd. Sherrill was located near Whittaker Creek Campground on May 11th. He was arrested and lodged at the Lane County Jail on a warrant for a probation violation. He has been charged with Aggravated Theft in the First Degree, Theft in the First Degree x2, Criminal Mischief in the First Degree x3, Burglary in the Second Degree, and Unlawful Use of a Vehicle. Sherrill is still in custody as of May 20th.

Convenience Store Damage, Glenwood
On May 15th at about 7 a.m., deputies responded to a report of a burglary and assault in progress in the 1400 block of S. Brooklyn Street, Glenwood. Deputies contacted a male suspect, Jason Michael Grimm, 40, shortly after arriving on scene. As they attempted to detain him, Grimm ran into a nearby convenience store. Deputies chased him inside, where Grimm used a slingshot to shoot rocks at deputies and store clerks. Grimm then began throwing items from the shelves, some hard enough to break exterior windows. Deputies were able to detain Grimm without further incident. The initial caller declined contact by deputies. Grimm was arrested and lodged at the Lane County Jail for Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Menacing x2, Recklessly Endangering x5, Criminal Mischief in the First Degree, and Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree. Grimm is still in custody as of May 20th.
