Last Tuesday, 28-year old Zannish Schmeka Fraziera broke into a car and home in a West Linn neighborhood. It seems her loot was far too heavy to carry so she called the cops to help her along the way.

In an apparent attempt to give the police a good reason to help her, Frazier said she was kicked out of her boyfriend's house and needed a ride to a transit center.

Carrying a handful of duffel bags filled with her loot, Frazier met Sergeants Mike Boyd, who took her to Clackamas County Jail for a probation violation warrant.

Frazier's "belongings" were being held by police for safekeeping but meanwhile they received a call from a woman at the 2200 block of Charman Street who reported a woman had broken into her home and sole several items. A duffel bag description matched that of Fraziers. Items stolen included laptop computers, jewelry and women's clothing.

In addition, and in the same area, a car theft was reported earlier in the evening on Grant Street. The items stolen matched what had been fouind in Frazier's possession.

Frazier now faces burglary and theft charges and has since been transferred to Washington County Jail.

"This case was brought to a rapid conclusion thanks to a lucky circumstance, and good police work"" said West Linn Police Chief Terry Timeus "It was helped by both victims giving very detailed descriptions of the items they were missing."
