OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) - Oregon City Police have identified a 19-year-old man accused of stealing Salvation Army kettles last week.

Sgt. Matthew Paschall said Monday that Jeremiah Tracy of Oregon City was booked into the Clackamas County Jail on theft charges. Bail was set at $18,500.

Investigators found Tracy at his residence in Oregon City and Paschall says one of the donation kettles was recovered. Police believe the teen is responsible for thefts outside Fred Meyer stores in Oregon City and Canby.

The Salvation Army said about $170 was taken, but the overall impact was more than $1,000. The Salvation Army said that figure includes missing kettles, a damaged kettle stand and the inability to collect the rest of the day’s kettle income after the thefts.
