Lincoln City identity theft

Lincoln City Police Officer Hayden Tolzman responded to a report of possible identity theft by a male and female at the Shearwater Inn, Sunday, July 5, that led to a foot chase, taser deployment and a stolen gun.

After locating the male suspect one block north of the Shearwater Inn, Tolzman asked him to stop, but the man took off on foot. As the chase unfolded north through the Sea Gypsy Motel parking lot, the male suspect dropped a handgun from his waistband and continued to flee from the pursuing officer. Tolzman caught up with him and a fight ensued.

A struggle took place in the parking lot, with the suspect swinging a fist at Tolzman’s head — missing — and allowing the officer to try and fire his taser. The suspect’s girlfriend punched the taser out of Tolzman’s hands and struck him in the chest.

Fellow officer Preston Craig arrived as backup, buying Tolzman time to redeploy his taser successfully on the man who continued to disobey repeated commands. The officers took him into custody without serious injury.

The male suspect, refusing to identify himself, was later identified as Daniel Loyd Howton Jr., 40, of Portland. Howton had warrants for his arrest out of Marion and Multnomah Counties.

The girlfriend was identified as Emily Ruth Huse, 28, of Vancouver, Wash.

During the investigation, Lincoln City Police learned the handgun dropped by Howton was reported as stolen from Portland in March.

Howton was taken to the Lincoln County Jail for felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a stolen firearm, attempted assault on a police officer, attempted unlawful use of a weapon, identity theft, interfering with police, disorderly conduct, harassment and the two warrants. His bail was set at $262,500.00.

Huse was lodged at the Lincoln City Police Department for criminal possession of a forged instrument. Charges are pending for interfering with the apprehension of Howton. The Lincoln County Jail denied entry to Huse due to COVID-19 policy, and she was issued a criminal citation and released Sunday evening.

The Lincoln City Police Department would like to thank the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, PacWest Medical and North Lincoln Fire for their assistance during this incident.

  1. And progressives want to defund the police. What is truly criminal is the country backing down to the mob that demeans these guys. Maybe next time send someone with a degree in woman’s studies who can handle this by explaining the societal implications of toxic masculinity. Lets see how that works.

  2. I’m glad these dangerous persons were arrested. I can’t help but relate
    my experience with officer Craig however. He responded to a call at our
    house, a call initiated by a neighbor we had a dispute with, he had his
    VRD renters who were his friends make up some vile lies and an officer
    was sent out. Upon arriving, Craig had already made up his mind.
    He told us, quote ” you should stay inside your house when there are paying tenants next door” My parents were talked out of filing a complaint by Chief Palmer, who was later called out to our house to discuss the incident, a decision we later regretted. There’s much more to this story than I feel like boring you with. The point- there are jerk cops out there, even in Lincoln City.

  3. I hope the police are keeping an eye on the statue of Lincoln in town. I have heard many people comment that the town may change its name to Floyd City. I used to think it was joke but I’ve heard it from many different people. Floyd City? Really?…

  4. Good going LCPD. Glad no officers were injured. Keep up the great work you all are doing thru these turbulent times. Stay well!

  5. Kev, too late on the boring part. On the plus side we get to add another anxiety disorder to your extensive list. Irrational fear of the police is called “Capiophobia”. As to the “stay in your house” suggestion, I’m thinking that’s probably a good idea for you in general. If you keep this up I’m going to have to start charging you for these sessions.

  6. fear of the police,I do not think so, Paguedoc,until you know the whole story,do not judge anyone. When an officer tells us to “stay inside your house when paying tenants are here”,Something is wrong with the police departments public relations. I always thought officers were not supposed to be biased,they are supposed to hear both sides of an incident. This did not happen. As for these two law breakers,am glad they were caught and hopefully will stay in jail,which is where all lawbreakers belong.

  7. floyd city, that is a joke and apparently there are many out of work comedians, or you’re trying to stir up trouble.

  8. The girl looks like the person in the passenger seat in a van that stole my mail out of my mailbox a few months ago. Not just identity thieves for sure.
