TROUTDALE, Ore. — A man arrested for shoplifting on Saturday morning had his skateboard confiscated by police. So, on Saturday afternoon, officers said he tried  and failed — to break into the police department to get it back.

A Troutdale officer noticed a door handle missing from the station's main entrance on Saturday night. A check of the building's surveillance system showed an attempted break-in at 2:15 p.m. that day.

Officers recognized the suspect as Nathaniel Mirelez, 20, of Wood Village. He had been arrested on shoplifting charges Saturday morning. At 9 a.m. Monday, Troutdale police again arrested Mirelez, this time on charges of attempted burglary, criminal mischief and theft.
