Arrest made in convenience store burglary

McMinnville police followed blood trails that led officers to a residence where they arrested a suspect Wednesday morning in connection with a burglary at the Circle K convenience store, 160 S.W. Hill Road.

Conner Allen Shipley, 18, of 934 N.E. Galloway St., was charged with one count each of second-degree burglary, Class C felony; second-degree criminal mischief, Class A misdemeanor, and third-degree theft, Class C misdemeanor. He was booked into the Yamhill County Jail on $15,000 bail.

Capt. Tim Symons gave this account:

About 3 a.m., officers were notified that an alarm had been activated and entry into the store had been made through a broken window.

Video surveillance determined there was one suspect, an adult male, who had cut himself either entering or exiting the store.

A combination of following blood trails and a K-9 track led officers to 2275 S.W. Kauer Drive, not far from the store. The front door was locked, there were multiple individuals inside but no one answered when officers knocked.

A search warrant was obtained for the residence. It was served and Shipley was located and taken into custody. No other arrests were made.

He allegedly took cigarettes from the store.
