A trio of incidents between a Keizer man and his Portland girlfriend culminated in her arrest last Sunday evening.
Latoyia Michelle King, 30, was arrested after pouring gasoline throughout 56-year-old boyfriend Robert Moore’s residence at 7802 St. Charles Street NE.
“We had quite the weekend with both of them,” said Capt. Jeff Kuhns with the Keizer Police Department.
King was arrested and charged with attempted arson, two counts of assault and criminal mischief. While being booked at Marion County Jail, a used methamphetamine pipe was found in King’s purse, leading to a criminal charge of unlawful possession of methamphetamine.
Kuhns said the arrest around 10:30 p.m. was the third incident between the couple in less than 24 hours.
The first incident happened around 3 a.m. last Sunday at the Shari’s Restaurant at the corner of River Road N and Chemawa Road NE.
“Moore called us and said they had an argument,” Kuhns said. “He said she threw a mailbox at his 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse and damaged it. Then she ran off on foot. He didn’t press any charges.”
