PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Clackamas County Deputies arrested a man early Tuesday morning for breaking into an insurance office and trying to steal toilet paper.
Deputies got the 911 call about 2:30 a.m. regarding a man acting suspiciously and throwing items over a fence at a State Farm insurance office in the 13000 block of SE Rusk Road in Milwaukie.
Deputies found the back door of the building broken and saw a suspect inside trying to hide. They say he was trying to steal a vacuum cleaner, DVDs and large packs of Charmin and Kirkland toilet paper.
Deputies tried to get the man to come out but he refused. That’s when they sent in Kilo, a sheriff’s office K9.
Kilo found the suspect right away and pulled on him, trying to get him out. According to deputies, a struggle ensued and the suspect pulled out a large knife that looked like a samurai sword. The suspect, Timothy Nelson, tried to stab Kilo several times. He missed Kilo, but damaged nearby drywall. He was bitten by Kilo in the process.
Nelson, 37, is currently on parole for burglary, according to deputies. He is charged with burglary, attempted assault of a police animal and resisting arrest.
