Local LEOs catch up with cyber crime

MEDFORD, Ore. -- This is a trend that is progressing as advances in technology pick up the pace. Southern Oregon High Tech Crime Task Force deals with online crime and is seeing a rise in theft all over the country, including here in Southern Oregon.

Det. Colin Fagan says as technology advances, so will the criminals.

"Using things like free wifi which while it may not be secure and someone could be looking at your information," Det. Fagan said.

Fagan says the less information you have online, the better.

Fagan is part of the Southern Oregon High Tech Crimes Task Force and says not updating your software on your smart devices is one of the most common ways to leave yourself open to someone stealing your information.

Josephine County Community Watch Program is gaining popularity

GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Josephine County's Community Watch Program is gaining popularity. The sheriff's office says it needs the public's help to push it forward.

Sheriff Gil Gilbertson says the people are part of the solution of making the community safer and they have always been part of the solution.

Gilbertson says he does not have an exact number, but many county residents contacted him in the last couple of days asking about the new program.

Gilbertson says community watch programs will train residents on setting up a neighborhood watch, search and rescue, emergency preparedness and first aid.

Gilbertson also says it is wonderful to see how many people want to be involved and make safer neighborhoods. He thinks it is exciting people are taking it seriously.

"Now is a good time to approach this. We should have been doing this years ago, but we're not, we haven't and it's not because we're trying to motivate people. We keep putting the information out, but it doesn't come to reality," the sheriff said.

Gilbertson says everyone needs to start working togrther to protect themselves and make it a better place to live.

The sheriff says emergency response teams, fire crews and medical responders together will put a package together and present that to the citizens of the county.

Hackers breach Oregon state employment database
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon Employment Department says hackers breached a database and could have seen Social Security numbers, addresses and birth dates for more than 851,000 job seekers.

The department says there's no evidence anyone's identity has been stolen, but anyone who has used the department's website is urged to change their password.

The Oregonian reports tech experts verified the breach after receiving an anonymous tip on Oct. 6. Security was restored the next day.

Oregon State Police are helping investigate.

The department will offer credit-monitoring services for people who are affected.

People can learn whether their data was compromised by calling the department's hotline, 877-643-4322.

Shots ring out at Canadian parliament
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) -- A gunman shot and wounded a Canadian soldier standing guard at a war memorial in the country's capital Wednesday, then entered Parliament, where numerous shots rang out, police and witnesses said.

   People fled Parliament by scrambling down scaffolding erected for renovations, witnesses said. Others were in lockdown. Police with rifles and body armor stood guard outside and blocked the normally bustling streets leading to Parliament.

   Ottawa police Constable Marc Soucy said it was unclear whether there was more than one shooter.

   The attack came two days after a recent convert to Islam killed one Canadian soldier and injured another in a hit-and-run before being shot to death by police. The killer had been on the radar of federal investigators, who feared he had jihadist ambitions and seized his passport when he tried to travel to Turkey.

   Canada had raised its domestic terror threat level from low to medium Tuesday because of "an increase in general chatter from radical Islamist organizations," said Jean-Christophe de Le Rue, a spokesman for the public safety minister.

   In Wednesday's attack, Soucy said shots were also fired at a shopping mall near Parliament. All three sites -- the National War Memorial, Parliament and the mall -- are within less than a mile from each other.

   The top spokesman for Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Harper was safe and had left Parliament Hill.

   Cabinet minister Tony Clement tweeted that at least 30 shots were heard inside Parliament, where Conservative and Liberal MPs were holding their weekly caucus meetings.

   "I'm safe locked in a office awaiting security," Kyle Seeback, another member of Parliament, tweeted.

   Royal Canadian Mounted Police warned people in downtown Ottawa to stay away from windows and rooftops.

   The wounded soldier was taken away in an ambulance. His condition was not immediately known.

Bear cub strolls through Ashland drug store
ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Some shoppers at an Oregon drug store were surprised by a bear cub scurrying down the aisles.

   Witnesses say the cub first showed up Sunday at a nearby hotel, hopped out a window and crossed the street to the Rite Aid in Ashland, a city 15 miles north of the California border.

   KGW reports that customers took photos and video until police arrived and scooped the little bear into a shopping cart.

   The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is holding the cub until it can be moved to a rehab center or a zoo.

   There was no sign of its mother. Authorities say the cub cannot be returned to the wild because of its contact with humans.

Car collides with Oregon log truck; 2 killed
ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) — The Douglas County Sheriff's Office says a Sutherlin couple died when a Toyota Corolla collided with a log truck.

The crash happened Monday afternoon on Nonpareil Road in Sutherlin.

According to the sheriff's office, the Corolla driven by 50-year-old Todd Gilman veered into the oncoming lane and struck the fully loaded log truck.

Gilman and his wife, Tina Gilman, died at the scene. The truck driver was taken to a Roseburg hospital.

The sheriff's office says both vehicles were going about 55 mph.

Packaging error prompts recall of naproxen pills
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina company is recalling nearly 12,000 boxes of pain relief tablets sold at Dollar Tree stores because some cartons contain a different medication that could cause allergic reactions.

Greensboro-based Contract Packaging Resources Inc. says it mistakenly placed bottles of ibuprofen inside boxes sold at Dollar Tree stores nationwide as Assured brand naproxen sodium tablets.

Some consumers buy naproxen sodium pain relievers because of allergies to ibuprofen. The packaging company says reactions that can include hives or life-threatening respiratory problems, but it hasn't received any reports of adverse reactions.

Consumers who bought 15-count boxes of 220mg Assured brand naproxen sodium tablets may return them to the store of purchase or call 336-252-3422.

Oregon GMO measure poised to set spending record
SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A ballot measure that would require labels on genetically engineered foods is poised to reach an Oregon spending record.

Both sides of the battle over Measure 92 have raised more than $17 million combined — a number that's likely to grow in the three weeks before the Nov. 4 election. They're reported spending about $13 million.

The previous spending record was around $16 million for a 2007 fight over a proposed hike in tobacco taxes to pay for children's health care. That measure failed.

Opponents of the food labeling measure have a fundraising advantage, reporting nearly twice the contributions. The money comes largely from large food producers and agribusiness companies.

Big donors to the Yes campaign include natural foods companies.
