NBPD release – On November 18, 2020, an astute city worker notified North Bend Police Department of a suspicious vehicle parked on private property north of Simpson Park. North Bend Police Department officers developed information that the driver of the vehicle may be wanted on a felony extraditable warrant out of California. Det. Sgt. Buddy Young worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Sacramento Police Department authorities to learn that the warrant was for assault with a deadly weapon or instrument with a prior offense and involved the use of a machete and axe against his victims. NBPD officers surveilled the vehicle, which had moved inside Simpson Park near the Visitor’s Center. Officers from North Bend PD, Coos Bay PD, and Oregon State Police conducted an operational briefing and took down the vehicle as it left Simpson Park in the area of Union Avenue and Florida Street. The suspect, Dustin Arlis White, age 31, of Sacramento, California, was taken into custody without incident. A female passenger, also from Sacramento, was released without charges. Officers observed a machete and axe inside the suspect vehicle immediately adjacent to the driver’s seat. The vehicle was impounded. White was transported to and lodged at Coos County Jail, awaiting extradition to California. North Bend PD would like to thank Oregon State Police, Coos Bay Police, Coos County Sheriff, the FBI, and Sacramento PD for their assistance and cooperation in apprehending and removing a violent criminal from our community.
