ARLINGTON, Ore. (AP) - Authorities in Arlington, Ore., have scheduled a public safety meeting to address the criminal mischief plaguing the community of roughly 600 people.
The East Oregonian newspaper (https://is.gd/7FbhWV ) reports a suspicious fire destroyed a house March 16. It’s about two blocks away from where the Arlington Church of the Nazarene was burned to the ground in November by an unknown arsonist.
On the night of the recent fire, someone slashed the tires on nine vehicles parked west of Main Street.
Also in the past nine months, two grass fires were set and someone threw a piece of cinder block through the glass doors of the Nazarene church youth center.
Gilliam County Sheriff Gary Bettencourt says Sunday’s meeting will provide an update on police investigations. He says residents must remain vigilant and immediately call police if they notice anything unusual.
