The suspects, 31-year-old Macknell Christopher Jones and 26-year-old Nicole Marie Moen, were booked into the Multnomah Jail on charges connected with theft, criminal mischief and drugs.

After the two were arrested, they allegedly swallowed drugs and had to be taken to different hospitals. After receiving medical treatment, they were transported to jail.

Among other charges, Jones and Moen were indicted by a Multnomah County Grand Jury in connection with a car-prowling incident in March, police said.

On the afternoon of March 11, prior to the start of a game in the girls' state basketball tournament, the suspects were caught by several members of the South Salem team while they were allegedly burglarizing the team bus.

They were able to escape with several stolen items.
