Oregon Police Officers Leave Dog in Car to Die After Arresting Woman

When officers tried to make contact with Bemis, she fled on her bike, crashed, then attempted to run on foot.

Bemis wasn’t arrested in connection with the burglary, but she was arrested on an outstanding warrant.

After she was released from jail more than two weeks later, she returned to her car to find Magic dead inside.

Bemis’ attorney argues cops had no probable cause to stop her in the first place at the time they detained her because she wasn’t engaged in any criminal activity.

“They basically stopped her for walking around at 3 a.m.,” Price said.

    Well, she is an idiot, for leaving the dog in the car, and for having a warrant out for her arrest, and for not even knowing where her car and dog were.

    Left out of the article here: “The EPD says that officers tried to find the car with Magic in it, but Bemis gave them the wrong location of the car. EPD also says they asked for contacts from Bemis, but she struggled to give them correct names and phone numbers.”

    And: “”We found that officers attempted to locate the car where she said she left it, at Jay and Marshal. It was not there. The officer who transported her to jail did not dismiss her concerns, but tried to get additional details about where she might have left the vehicle,” McLaughlin said.

    The police gave Bemis a phone number and instructed her to call if she could provide more details about her brother’s or mother’s phone numbers but she didn’t call, according to the Eugene police spokeswoman.

    Shortly after the incident, Kamkar told The Register-Guard in 2015 that “our heart goes out to (Bemis) because the bottom line is, she lost her dog. Most of us as police officers, we love dogs, and a story like that touches everyone’s hearts.”
