Gresham Police arrested an officer with the private Wackenhut security company on Saturday night, charging him with burglarizing the offices he was employed to protect.
Detectives charged Matthew Maedche, 20, of Portland, with 16 counts of second-degree burglary and three counts of attempted second-degree burglary
Police detectives had set up surveillance at the Adventist Health Medical Plaza, 831 NW Council Dr., in Gresham, after a string of burglaries that began Sept. 13.
Gresham Police Detective Tony Cobb suspected somebody with access to the buildings was involved because in many of the burglaries, only interior doors were tampered with.
Detectives searched Maedche’s home and said they recovered several items that had been taken.
Maedche is being held at the county jail pending a bond hearing.
