Sisters man arrested in string of thefts

Noah Kirshner of Sisters has been arrested — yet again — in connection with a series of vehicle break-ins in the local area. Kirshner, 23, has been arrested repeatedly over a period of years in connection with similar thefts.

The most current arrest occurred on Tuesday, November 29, after a concerned citizen made a report to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office regarding possible stolen property that might be connected to a string of thefts in the neighborhood of Squaw Creek Canyon Estates.

The investigating deputy located possible victims of the thefts in the neighborhood. During the investigation Noah Kirshner was determined to be a suspect in the thefts from vehicles in the area of Appaloosa Drive.

At approximately 2:30 p.m., Noah Kirshner was located inside his vehicle on Wilt Road. Kirshner was subsequently taken into custody without incident and lodged at the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Adult Jail.

The investigating deputy applied for and was granted a search warrant for Noah Kirshner’s vehicle. The search of the vehicle resulted in locating other suspected stolen items.

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is still attempting to locate any and all additional victims in the Sisters area who may have had their vehicles broken into.

If you or anyone you know has been the victim of a recent car break-in, or had items stolen from your vehicle, contact the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, 541-693-6911, reference Case #22-64396.

Kirshner had been arrested in 2020 for a string of thefts from vehicles. All of those cases involved vehicles that were left unlocked in driveways of residences. In one case, a 9mm pistol was stolen from an unlocked vehicle, along with other valuables. Additionally, one of the victim vehicles had damage to a stereo and dashboard from Kirshner’s attempt to steal the stereo.

Kirshner was arrested for a similar string of break-ins two years before that.

According to Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, deputies and Black Butte Ranch police responded on September 26, 2018 to a report of a domestic dispute at 576 E. Jefferson Ave. in Sisters. When law enforcement arrived, they contacted Kirshner outside the residence. Investigators determined that Kirshner had caused extensive damage to a residence and had been throwing rocks at vehicles. Investigating further, they found property in Kirshner’s possession that linked him to multiple vehicle break-ins in the Sisters area that had been reported the morning of September 25, 2018.

In 2017, Kirshner was arrested in connection with the theft of hemp from a farm near Sisters.
