Property Dispute Turns Into Dog-Napping Near TurnerSalem-News.com
The dog "Isis" is still missing and Ms Kempton will not reveal it's location.
(TURNER, Ore.) - A landlord tenant dispute that had grown out of control near Turner brought the Marion County Sheriff's Deputies to investigate the situation on April 26.
Deputies believe that the landlord, 39-year old Rose Mary Skoda-Kempton, of Turner, also known as Brooke Kempton, was upset at her tenant 30-year old Kate Taylor, for being disrespectful and kicked Ms. Taylor out of the residence two days prior to the police being called.
Ms. Taylor moved from the residence the day she was asked to leave, collecting her belongings and selling her horses which were being boarded, as part of the rental agreement, at Ms. Kempton's mother's residence near Turner.
That morning, about 8 a.m., Ms. Kempton went to her now ex-tenant's father's house, in the 4700 block of Marion Road SE.
While at the residence Ms. Kempton confronted 61-year old Kevin Taylor stating that his daughter, Kate Taylor stole two saddles and she was taking Ms. Taylor's dog until she got her saddles back.
Mr. Taylor attempted to stop Ms. Kempton from leaving with the dog by jumping on the running boards of her silver Ford truck.
Ms. Kempton accelerated forward, throwing Mr. Taylor from the truck, onto the driveway, injuring his hand and wrist, which required treatment at a local hospital.
On Friday, April 29th, the suspect turned herself in to deputies waiting at the Marion County Jail.
Deputy Bennett was able to work with Ms Kempton's attorney who convinced her to turn herself in. Ms Kempton agreed to meet Deputy Bennett and her attorney in the parking lot of the Marion County Jail.
Deputies waiting in the parking lot for Ms Kempton saw a limousine pull into the parking lot right in front of the Marion County Court Annex. After about 10 minutes, Ms Kempton exited the limousine and contacted Deputy Bennett.
The dog "Isis" is still missing and Ms Kempton would not tell Deputy Bennett where the pet is. Deputy Bennett will continue to attempt to locate the dog.
Ms Kempton was taken into custody and lodged at the Marion County Jail on charges of Robbery 3 (for causing injury during the theft of the dog) and Theft 1 (the theft of a pet).
Deputy Bennett said this was a unique situation and one he did not expect. He has never had anyone arrive in a limousine to turn themselves in.
The Sheriff's Office is actively searching for "Isis", the missing K9. "Isis" is a 4 year old Whippit, she is black in color, weighing 15 lbs, and micro chipped.
Anyone who has information about the whereabouts of "Isis" should call Marion County Dispatch at 503-588-5032.
