A Keizer man charged with using a video camera to watch his stepdaughter is now facing additional charges.

The Keizer Police Department has charged Bryan Duane Tilley, 51, of 890 Cater Court North with three additional crimes after a new victim discovered a hidden digital video camera in her bedroom on Sunday, March 2 on the 1400 block of Katie Avenue NE.

The victim, a 22-year old female, is known to Tilley and his 22-year-old stepdaughter.

Tilley was previously arrested by the Corvallis Police Department in relation to allegations he hacked into his 22-year-old stepdaughter’s social media accounts, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The stepdaughter is a student at Oregon State University.

After Bryan Tilley’s arrest by Corvallis police, detective Ben Howden of the KPD continued the investigation and examined a flash drive that was taken from Tilley at the time of his arrest. On Jan. 25, Howden arrested Tilley without incident and charged him with 17 counts of Invasion of Personal Privacy and three counts of First Degree Burglary for crimes he’s alleged to have committed in Keizer.

On Tuesday, March 4, Howden responded to the Marion County Correctional Facility where Tilley has been incarcerated since his arrest and charged him with three new crimes related to the discovery of the hidden digital video camera on Sunday.

Tilley has been charged with one new count of First Degree Burglary, one new count of Attempted Invasion of Personal Privacy and one new count of Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree.

Investigators allege Tilley entered and remained unlawfully in the 22-year old victim’s residence with the intent to commit a crime, Invasion of Personal Privacy, therein. This particular residence had not been the subject of Howden’s previous investigation.

Evidence recovered from the digital video camera found on Sunday suggests Tilley personally placed the camera in a concealed location within the victim’s bedroom on Jan. 16, the day before he was first arrested. Investigators believe the digital video camera remained hidden in the victim’s bedroom until it was discovered on March 2. Tilley was unable to retrieve the camera because he has been incarcerated since his arrest.

Tilley was scheduled to be arraigned on the new criminal charges Wednesday afternoon, March 5 at the Marion County Court Annex in Salem.

The McNary High School varsity basketball team rallied to a 52-48 win over West Salem High School in a game that decided third place in the Central Valley Conference tournament Wednesday, Feb. 26.

While it was a game that neither coaches nor players would point to as a best outing, the team did enough to get the job done, said Ryan Kirch, McNary head coach.

“We made some poor plays, had some bad passes and made some bad choices on shot selection, but we gutted ourselves to get to the second half and picked up our pressure,” Kirch said. “Cade Goff gave us great minutes all night.”

Goff, a freshman, finished with six points and a team-leading 11 rebounds.

The Titans led for much of the game, and by as much as 13 points, before the Celts regained their composure.

“We had 12 turnovers in the first half and that was a scare, but we came back in the second half. Tregg (Peterson) and Trent (Van Cleave) got a lot of steals and fast breaks that they didn’t respond to very well,” Goff said.
McNary got back into the game by turning up the pressure on defense and going on a 16-5 run to end the game.

“It wasn’t how we planned to win, but we had a lot of energy and a good crowd on-hand,” said Braden Taylor, a McNary senior.

The game was key for the Celts in a couple of ways. First, the win earned the Celtics a bye in the play-in round of the state tournament, its first since the play-ins became part of the playoff system. Second, it guaranteed the Keizer team (14-12), its first winning season in six years. The Celts had more wins this season than they did the last three combined.

Jonathan Doutt, a senior now, but starter on the varsity roster since his freshman year, has been one of the lynchpins for the team through the struggle, but said it was a team mentality that made the difference.

“Everyone bought in. Before we had a losing mental
