New WPD App Helps Nab Most Wanted Suspect

Last week the Woodburn Police Department launched its mobile app, which is available on Apple, Android and Windows platforms. A week later it has already help catch one of Woodburn’s most wanted.

On Monday, May 2 a Woodburn police officer was showing the new app to a community member. As the officer was explaining the app the resident identified one of Woodburn’s most wanted, Wilfrido Manriguez-Dominguez and said he frequents the Woodburn 7-Eleven.

Around 11 a.m. on May 3, that contact called the Woodburn Police Department and indicated that Manriguez-Dominguez, 37, of Woodburn, was at the convenient store. Police arrived and arrested him on identity theft charges and took him to Marion County Jail.

“This is one of the key reasons why I wanted to get this app launched,” said Woodburn Police Chief Jim Ferraris. “It has been out a week and we have had tips come and now have made an arrest of one of our most wanted criminals. Our officers are doing a great job of getting the word out to the community, and we are seeing immediate results.”

In addition to Manriguez-Dominguez, another of Woodburn’s most wanted was recently arrested. Steven Jimenez, Jr. was arrested by another agency and is lodged in Marion County Jail.
