The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said they began investigating a stalking case after a woman reported her ex-boyfriend tried to break into her apartment.

About the same time, the Beaverton Police Department received a phone call from an out-of-state witness who was receiving messages from the suspect, police said.

Officials identified 21-year-old Conner Charriere as the person who tried to break into the apartment and sent those messages, authorities said.

The messages gave out Charriere’s detailed plan to use GPS trackers and lock-picking equipment to kidnap the woman and then shoot and kill her, officials said.


Police went to his house and Charriere was arrested, according to authorities.

Detectives from the Violent Crimes Unit got a warrant to search the house and found the packaging for a GPS tracker, which was later found on a car the victim used, police said.

Police said they also found a gun, extra ammunition, zip ties, duct tape and lock-picking tools.

A Washington County grand jury indicted Charriere on May 20 on counts of second-degree attempted murder, two counts of first-degree attempted kidnapping, four counts of first-degree attempted burglary, one count of unlawful use of a weapon, stalking and unlawful use of a global positioning system device.
