Updated: Jun 14

On June 10, 2024 at around 7:45pm Newport Police arrested Brandon Allen Lyons, 49 of Newport, after Lyons attempted to enter multiple homes and vehicles in the area of NW 55th Street. Newport Officers were dispatched to the area of NW 55th St following the report of a male subject, later identified as Lyons, attempting to enter a residence.

As officers were responding to the area, an additional caller in the area reported seeing Lyons in their back yard and reported he tried to enter their home through their back door. Lyons fled on foot, then attempted to make entry into a third home in the area. The homeowner stated Lyons was unsuccessful entering the home and  left on foot and was last seen entering the woods near NE 57th Street. 

Newport Officers, along with Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputies and OSP Troopers, converged on the area, but were unable to locate Lyons. While conducting follow-up interviews with homeowners in the area, officers learned Lyons was hiding in a vehicle on NE 57th St. Newport Police, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputies, and OSP Troopers responded and located the vehicle on NE 57th St with a door open.
