The Hood River County Sheriff’s Office is asking for public help to locate three wanted felons.
Detective Gerry Tiffany said the fugitives are believed to be known associates who frequent the Parkdale area. He said they have been linked to several recent drug-related crimes, including methamphetamine production and burglary. Eric Robert Hasselblad, 24, allegedly even admitted to law enforcement officials in a telephone conversation that he was a “meth cook.”
He is being sought by deputies along with Terry Dale Roberts, 41, and Mark Lester Davis, 43. Although Davis has resided primarily in the southern sector of the county, Roberts once lived on Wilson Street in the city of Hood River and Hasselblad in Milwaukie.
“Anybody that sees these men or knows where they are can report that information confidentially,” said Tiffany.
He said the names of the fugitives have repeatedly come up during recent Mid-Columbia Narcotics Task Force investigations into local drug activity.
“This appears to be sort of a ‘birds of a feather flock together,’ case,” said Tiffany.
He said outstanding warrants have been issued for all three men, who have criminal histories that include drug offenses, probation violations, and traffic infractions. Although they have been sighted in differing locations around Hood River County, Tiffany said the suspects have no known address.
“People need to be aware that they can be charged with a crime if they harbor these guys,” he said.
Individuals with information about the whereabouts of Hasselblad, Roberts or Davis are urged to call 9-1-1 or the sheriff’s business line at 386-2098.
