Hermiston Police News: Burgler Nabbed.

Release Date: 

At approximately 3:25 AM, on the 25th of May 2013, the Hermiston Police Department responded to Rocky Heights Elementary School (650 W. Standard Ave) on a report of an interior alarm going off.  With the assistance of the Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office, Hermiston Police Sergeant Kelly Parsons (and a county deputy) meticulously searched the building after finding an open window.

Alexandro Magana 18 years of age, a local transient of Hermiston, was located hiding inside a cabinet.  Magana was discovered with computer equipment belonging to the school.  Magana was taken into custody, processed at the Hermiston Police Department, and later lodged at the Umatilla County Jail in Pendleton on charges of Burglary in the Second Degree and Theft in the Second Degree.

“Though reactive to the alarm, it is extremely critical our department treats all calls for service with due diligence.  This is the 226th alarm so far this year our dispatch center and officers have responded to.  Perhaps just as important to us is the assistance we received from the Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office on this call as our others officers were busy with arrests.” by Chief of Police Jason Edmiston.
