PHOENIX, Ore. — Investigators with the Phoenix Police Department (PPD) have made an arrest in a spate of recent tire slashings, the agency said in a statement on Wednesday.

The first reports came in on Sunday, July 14, when police learned of "several vehicles with slashed tires" around N Church Street and N Main Street in Phoenix.

"The Phoenix Police Department has received several reports that late Saturday night and early Sunday morning several vehicles in the Phoenix area had tires slashed/punctured," the agency said in a post on Monday. "We are currently investigating the incident and would like anyone who had vehicle tires damaged over night Saturday night to please contact us."

After investigating the incident, officers reportedly found more than 50 vehicles with tires slashed in the area. The next day, that investigation led to 42-year-old Travis Fullmer of Medford, according to PPD.

On Tuesday afternoon, PPD said that Sheriff's deputies pulled Fullmer over in a stolen vehicle and arrested him. He now faces charges of Theft III and ten counts of Criminal Mischief I related to the tire slashing that began on Saturday night.

"This is an ongoing investigation, if you believe that you are a victim of this crime, please contact the Phoenix Police Department at (541) 535-1113," the agency said.
