GRANTS PASS, Ore. — One man is now in custody after someone smashed the windows of three businesses in downtown Grants Pass on Wednesday night, according to the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety.
Police responded to "numerous alarm calls" from downtown shortly before 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Officers arrived to find that the windows had been broken out of three businesses on SW 5th and 6th streets. The damaged businesses were US Bank, Cash Connection, and Rapley Motorsports.
Witnesses in the area directed the officers to two "suspicious persons" nearby, GPDPS said, and officers detained both of them.
After looking through surveillance footage, officers arrested one of them — identified as 30-year-old Gregory Jackson-Angus. The other person was identified and released, GPDPS said.
Jackson-Angus was taken to the Josephine County Jail on charges for Criminal Mischief and Possession of Methamphetamine, but two of the vandalism cases are still under investigation, GPDPS said. Jackson-Angus is a person of interest.
