KATU Camera Stolen at Occupy Demonstration

A KATU news crew had a camera stolen while covering an Occupy Portland demonstration this week.

On Monday, Occupy protestors gathered at the Port of Portland, shutting down three of its four terminals.  Amid the demonstration, police arrested a handful of unruly people, including one man who stole a pick-up truck from the scene of a car crash and used it to transport a group on their way to the port.

While details of the theft are scarce, KATU general manager John Tamerlano told TVSpy that the station is working with the Portland police department to recover the stolen equipment, which has been valued at around $25,000.

The Portland PD is currently tracking Craigslist and other online marketplaces for signs of the camera.
