Vancouver Man Robbed at Gunpoint

Tuesday, 22 July, 2014



The Skamania County Sheriff’s Office received a report at approximately 5:30 pm Saturday that a 70 year old Vancouver, WA man had been robbed at gunpoint.  Deputies responded to the Salmon Falls park and ride, the location of the incident, located adjacent to Highway 14 at approximately mile post 27. 

The victim,  Allen Ferrians, reported that he had stopped to use the restroom after a day of fishing.  As he went back to his vehicle, he was approached by one of two motorcycle riders that were in the parking lot where he was parked.  One brandished a dark handgun and demanded his money.  Ferrians gave him approximately $250.00 at which time the two motorcyclists left the area, but Ferrians did not know what their direction of travel was.

He described the two as riding large, cruiser type motorcycles similar to Harley Davidsons, both wearing black leather and helmets.  One helmet had a black visor and the other a mirrored visor. 

Subsequent investigation by responding deputies and adjacent jurisdictions did not locate the suspects. 


“This is an unusual event for that area and we are extremely concerned”, said Undersheriff Dave Cox.  “We are continuing with this investigation and request anyone with any information to call our office.”

The Skamania County Sheriff’s Office number is (509)427-9490.
