Man indicted in 2008 Redmond firearm theft, Taco Time robbery
by Bend Weekly News Sources

REDMOND, Ore. – Police today announced the indictment of a Kennewick, Washington man on charges related to the 2008 theft of a firearm from a gun store, and subsequent robbery of a Redmond fast-food restaurant using the stolen gun.


On Tuesday, March 10, a Deschutes County Grand Jury indicted Juan Paco Campos Jr., 20, on charges of first-degree robbery with a firearm, second-degree theft, and first-degree theft of a firearm, Redmond Police Detective Sgt. Cory Chase reported.

A handgun was stolen from Gun Traders at 2130 S. Highway 97 on February 2, 2008, and Taco Time on Highland Avenue was robbed at gunpoint five days later, Chase said.

The restaurant employees had described the suspect as an Hispanic male about 5-foot 2-inches to 5-foot 4-inches tall with a slim build and brown eyes, who was wearing a black ski mask, black hooded sweatshirt, work-style denim pants and black cotton gloves.  The robber brandished a handgun and gave the cashier a backpack, demanding that it be filled with money, then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

New leads were developed almost a year later pointing to Campos as a suspect, and presentation of the new information to the Grand Jury resulted in the indictment, the news release stated.

“Campos is currently being held in federal custody in the state of Washington on an unrelated matter,” Sgt. Chase said.
