#AceNewsReport – Nov.04: Reginald Huricks, 38, was convicted of two counts of second-degree robbery, two counts of first-degree robbery with a firearm, one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, one count of being in possession of a loaded firearm, and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm KATUNews reports.
Investigators said the robberies occurred at the same convenience store in the University Park Neighborhood: The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office said Huricks used homemade firearms during the robberies. Law enforcement later determined the guns could fire ammunition.
State investigators said the robberies occurred on Janu. 18, April 17, and May 2 in the 5200 block of North Lombard Street in Portland:
During the first robbery, surveillance video recorded a man, later identified as Huricks, walk into the store and steal a pack of cigarettes. The video showed that as Huricks was leaving, the clerk grabbed a baseball bat and went to the front door. In the video, Huricks reported pointed what appeared to be a firearm at the door from outside. He fled before police arrived.
On April 17, Huricks entered the store again, selected some merchandise, and approached the counter. Instead of paying, surveillance video shows Huricks displaying the handle of a firearm to the employee. According to testimony at trial, Huricks told the clerk he had a gun and threatened the employee. Huricks left the store without paying for the merchandise.
On May 2, Huricks entered the store again with his face partially covered and was armed with what appeared to be a homemade firearm. Evidence showed that Huricks pointed the gun at two people, ordered one to get on the ground, and ordered the other to hand over the store’s cash.
On May 4, while responding to reports of a restraining order violation in the 7000 block of North Olin Avenue in Portland, police arrested Huricks and found a concealed, homemade firearm on him. The gun matched the description of the firearm used in the robberies.
While in custody, Huricks wrote a letter to the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office referencing his involvement in the first and second convenience store, but he denied being involved in any robbery.
Huricks is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 13.
