BEAVERTON, Ore. – A Beaverton Police officer was arrested Friday for a series of charges including unlawfully obtaining and using food stamps.

Christopher Warren, 32, turned himself in to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office Friday afternoon after a grand jury issued a secret indictment warrant, said Sgt. Vance Stimler.

Warren was charged with unlawfully obtaining public assistance, unlawfully obtaining and using food stamps, first-degree theft and unsworn falsification, Stimler said.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office would not elaborate on the circumstances surrounding Warren’s arrest and the subsequent charges.

Beaverton police confirmed to KGW that Warren was placed on paid administrative leave as part of an investigation with Washington County.

Warren is due in court on Apr. 30.
