  • Two Men Charged With Credit Card Fraud After Shopping Spree
    Posted: October 2013
    Tigard Police arrested two Los Angeles-area men allegedly responsible for a series of fraudulent credit card purchases in Tigard and other metro area locations. Xunhai Zheng, 33, and Jin Hua Lin, 22, are currently being held in the Washington County Jail. Both have been charged with Aggravated Theft I, Aggravated ID Theft and Organized Retail Theft.

    On Wednesday, the pair was identified while making fraudulent purchases at the Nordstrom store located at the Washington Square Mall in Tigard. Information regarding the suspects was shared the previous day when other retailers in the metro area discovered the pair making purchases of gift cards and merchandise using counterfeit credit cards. Nordstrom security personnel contacted Tigard Police on Wednesday when the two men were observed in the Tigard store. Tigard Police and Beaverton Police detectives converged at the mall and located the suspects. The investigators followed the suspects throughout the afternoon, including another shopping spree at the Macy’s store located at The Streets of Tanasbourne in Hillsboro. The suspects were ultimately arrested at a hotel in northwest Portland, where they led investigators. A search conducted at the hotel yielded an extensive collection of gift cards and merchandise purchased with the counterfeit credit cards.

    Tigard investigators now believe the pair may be responsible for over $100,000 of fraudulent purchases in the metro area. Of that, nearly $30,000 of transactions was conducted in Washington County alone within a matter of several hours on Wednesday. Tigard Police is continuing to investigate.




    Tigard Police Commercial Crimes Unit: Helping Businesses Fight Crime Since 2008
    Posted: February 27, 2013
    The Tigard Police Department’s Commercial Crimes Unit (CCU) is unlike any other crime fighting unit in the nation. Uniquely funded through the city’s business licensing fees, three full-time police officers (two investigators and a supervisor) provide dedicated service to local merchants and area businesses to investigate and address the types of crime that impact their bottom line.

    From the beginning, CCU’s focus has been on building relationships with businesses to combat crime and its negative impact on Tigard commerce. Over the last year, investigations concluded with more than 80 arrests for embezzlement, fraud/ID theft, narcotics offenses, organized retail theft and shoplifting.

    The team of officers in the CCU report that the best part of this work has been the people they assist. Businesses now have a personal connection to an officer and a voice when they need the services of the Tigard Police Department.
