Arrests and offenses that the East Oregonian reports are taken from the logs of area police agencies. The EO generally reports only crimes classified as felonies, but may also report misdemeanors when a rash of one kind of crime occurs; when a public official or prominent individual is involved; when an incident has an unusual aspect; and some traffic-related offenses. Every effort is made to report the court disposition of all arrests reported here.
