Updated: Jun 23, 2023

On June 16, 2023, at around 1:00 PM a Siletz resident reported to Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputies that her dog was missing. The resident suspected that the dog might have be stolen out of their fenced yard on SE Swan Avenue in Siletz. Animal Services Deputy Martin began an investigation and obtained information that a local man had formed a bond with the dog by visiting it and feeding it through the fence several times a day. Deputy Martin located the male, identified as 38-year-old Nicholas Colman-Pinning of Newport, who was still in possession of the dog. Deputy Bo Douglas and Animal Services Deputy Martin were able to reunite the dog with its family by 6:00 PM. Colman-Pinning was charged with first-degree theft for the theft of a companion animal.
