For a third time since first coming to the attention of local law enforcement on Nov. 3, Paul Lawayne Loyd, 47, a transient now traversing Hood River County by bicycle, has been arrested and lodged at NORCOR for breaking the law.
Loyd was arrested again on charges of probation violation Nov. 23 within a day of his release from NORCOR on previous convictions.
As part of Loyd's sentence issued for the Nov. 12 disorderly conduct conviction Loyd was ordered to have no contact with anyone in Hood River County.
Around noon on Nov. 23, following several complaints to the sheriff's department from Cascade Locks residents, OSP Trooper Brent Ocheskey detained Loyd at the marina park.
HRCSO Deputy Marc Smith arrived on the scene and arrested Loyd for having contact with residents of the county - a violation of Loyd's probation agreement.
Loyd was later lodged at NORCOR on the new charge.
Loyd's Nov. 29 11 a.m. court appearance before Judge Donald Hull resulted in another release, with the stipulation that he leave Hood River County immediately. Loyd's 18-month probation will remain in effect.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
