Linn County Deputy District Attorney Receives Award - Wildlife Prosecutor Of The Year (Photo) - 08/19/16

On August 18, 2016, Linn County Deputy District Attorney Keith Stein was presented the 2015 Wildlife Prosecutor of the Year Award at the Oregon District Attorney's Association summer conference. DDA Stein received the award in front of hundreds of his peers and colleagues.

The 2015 Wildlife Prosecutor of the Year Award was presented by Oregon State Police Fish and Wildlife Division Captain Jeff Samuels and Lieutenant Casey Thomas, along with Steve Marx, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) West Region Manager, on behalf of the Oregon Sportsmen's Coalition.

One example of a successful prosecution by DDA Stein:
A Sweet Home resident was recently sentenced in Linn County Circuit Court. The sentencing was stemming from a 2014 investigation involving Fish and Wildlife Troopers and an OSP aircraft. Late at night in October of 2014, the Aircraft Sergeant located a vehicle south of Sweet Home actively casting a spotlight from a motor vehicle and notified responding ground Troopers of its location and direction of travel. A trooper responded to the location to discover the suspect had fled the vehicle and was hiding in the thick forest. The suspect ultimately obeyed commands and revealed himself and his juvenile son. The suspect had concealed a rifle and spotlight in the nearby brush which troopers later located. The suspect was charged with Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Hunt with Aid of Artificial Light, and was ultimately convicted on both counts. Below is the sentence the suspect received:
* 1 month and 2 days in the county jail
* 13 months in prison
* Hunting privileges permanently revoked
* Fined $400.00
* When released, will have 24 months of Post-Prison Supervision
* Rifle and spotlight seized as evidence was forfeited

In a nomination letter, an OSP Fish and Wildlife Trooper wrote: "DDA Stein is clearly an outstanding professional, mentor, and colleague, but I believe he should be viewed first as an outstanding prosecutor with respect to fish and wildlife laws. In many ways exceeding the challenging requirements and expectations for the award, DDA Stein's ambitions, intelligence and accomplishments complement precisely the stellar community of past recipients and make him highly deserving of the honor bestowed of this award... DDA Stein welcomes the diverse issues fish and wildlife offenses create with charging, forensics, ... he appreciates the challenges fish and wildlife cases present, and understands the importance and value of each case. DDA Stein has been the leader of the Linn County District Attorney's Office for prosecuting high-profile wildlife cases for approximately a decade."

ODFW West Region Manager Steve Marx said "ODFW commends DDA Stein for his commitment to prosecuting fish and wildlife cases. Effective enforcement of wildlife laws is a critical component to protecting population health and species conservation needs, and supporting wildlife associated recreation and quality outdoor experiences."

The Oregon Sportsmen's Coalition, which consists of volunteer outdoor enthusiast organizations opposed to the unlawful and unethical taking of wildlife to include the Oregon Hunters Association, sponsored the award. This is the ninth annual presentation of the Wildlife Prosecutor of the Year Award.

Conclusion of Oregon State Police Forensic Division Investigation - 08/16/16

During the summer of 2015 we initiated an investigation into missing controlled substances that had been removed from two of our crime labs. Our detectives subsequently established and documented a pattern of theft by employee Nika Larsen, an OSP scientist, who used her position to remove controlled substances from two of the five OSP crime labs.

We promptly notified all Oregon District Attorney Offices and turned the results of our investigation over to the Oregon Department of Justice for additional investigation and independent evaluation. The Oregon Attorney General and the United States' Attorney's office subsequently conducted their own investigations which confirmed OSP's findings and built a successful criminal case against Larsen.

We profoundly regret our scientist's behavior and any adverse impact it has had on our professional partners or the administration of justice. We are redoubling our commitment to delivering the consistently professional service that built our hard-earned reputation for excellence.

As part of our efforts moving forward we participated in and look forward to any recommendations from the workgroup established by Governor Brown to evaluate policies and procedures utilized with our crime labs. No human system can guarantee perfection, but we have underscored our commitment to integrity, reliability, security and transparency by updating lab security policies, procedures and equipment.

Oregon Department of Forestry Release:

Wildfire in Selma Burns Three Homes - 08/13/16

Fire crews worked through the night cooling hot spots and monitoring fire lines on the Redwood Highway Fire in Selma, located on Highway 199 near the California border in southwest Oregon. Cooler nighttime temperatures and calm winds allowed for continued progress to be made on the fire line, which is 87 percent contained. The fire size remains at approximately 50 acres. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

No other fires larger than 100 acres were reported Friday or early Saturday on Oregon Department of Forestry-protected lands.

Just before sunrise today on the Redwood Highway Fire, firefighters discovered a small spot fire 1,000 feet outside of the current fire line. Within minutes, firefighters extinguished the flames and formed a wet line along the perimeter. Throughout the day, ground crews and aircraft will continue to monitor fire activity and watch for burning snags, spotting and flare ups. The goal is to ensure the fire perimeter is 100 percent lined by this evening.

Firefighters working on structural protection this morning uncovered three homes, and at least five outbuildings destroyed by the fire. It was originally thought by fire crews that only two homes were lost on Deer Creek Road in Selma; however, the daylight revealed that there were two homes on one property, a main house and guest house. All residents managed to safely evacuate. Firefighters will continue to search for additional structures damaged or threatened in the burned area.

Deer Creek Road remains under evacuation this morning. Residents on the 975 block and above on Deer Creek Rd. are at a "Be Set" Level 2 evacuation notice. Residents on the 974 block and below on Deer Creek Rd. remain at a "Go" Level 3 evacuation status. The road is closed to the public. After an additional assessment early this afternoon, Incident Command will revisit the option of reopening the road and changing evacuation levels. Residents seeking shelter assistance should visit the evacuation center, located in Cave Junction at 200 W. Watkins Street.

Redwood Highway is open but travelers are advised to drive slowly through the Selma area. Firefighting operations are still occurring next to the road and areas of smoke may be present.

The weather forecast today in southwest Oregon includes a Red Flag Warning for the Rogue River, Applegate River and Illinois River basins. Hot temperatures, 100-105, low relative humidity and potentially strong afternoon winds are expected across the region.

In the rest of Oregon, temperatures along the Coast remain moderate with highs in the mid-70s and lows in the mid-50s. East of the Cascades, high temperatures are expected in low-to-mid 90s and light winds. On Sunday, there is a chance of thunderstorms in the southern Oregon Cascade Range and the Klamath Basin.

Drug Investigation leads to arrest of two men in Jackson County - 08/11/16

A multi-agency investigation resulted in the execution of a search warrant in Jackson County late yesterday afternoon, and the arrest of two subjects and the seizure of a large amount of packaged marijuana, marijuana plants, psilocybin mushrooms, ecstasy, firearms, an active Butane Honey Oil (BHO) Lab and other items of evidence. Once the BHO lab was discovered, additional Oregon State Police Clan Lab personnel was called upon to safely dismantle the BHO enclosed loop system.

Conan Samson Yates, age 25 and Kelley Rose McDonald, age 23 were arrested at a residence on Wagon Trail Drive, Jacksonville, OR after detectives located an active BHO Lab in an unattached shop adjacent to the residence at that address.

Law enforcement members encountered an additional unexpected hazard when clearing the residence, discovering 7 poisonous snakes in makeshift cages in a bedroom of the residence. Albino Cobra snakes, rattle snakes, and a python were just a few of the snakes identified. All the snakes were uninjured and left at the residence.

Seized from the property were 101 marijuana plants, over 20 pounds of packaged / heat sealed marijuana and approximately 100 pounds of marijuana located in different locations in the house. Additionally, 20 rifles and 5 pistols (some loaded) were located along with bags of psilocybin mushrooms, ecstasy, Hydrocodone tablets and multiple pounds of honey oil. Other items seized were scales, packaging materials, electronic devices, a vehicle and various items of evidentiary value. Additional arrests may be forthcoming in this ongoing investigation involving federal, state and local investigators.

A BHO extraction lab is a potentially explosive technique that in general, produces cannabis extractions by placing marijuana or marijuana trimmings in some type of holding container and forcing butane through the pressurized container in a manner that doesn't allow the plant material to escape, yet allows the butane to escape. Butane is heavier than air and sinks to ground level where it can ignite by a stove pilot light or a refrigerator compressor. The butane strips the marijuana of it's cannabinoids and the end result is pure THC oil that is oftened turned into a product called "shatter or wax" that commonly has a THC potency 4 to 5 times that of a marijuana plant.


According to Oregon State Police (OSP) Drug Enforcement Section Sergeant Jim Johnson, members from Homeland Security, Medford Area Drug & Gang Enforcement (MADGE) team, various Oregon State Police Divisions, and the Rogue Area Drug Enforcement (RADE) team participated with the service of the warrant. "It is always concerning when law enforcement encounters illegal BHO extraction labs which are extremely volatile and can cause serious injury and even death without warning," said Johnson. Information developed during the investigation revealed the marijuana was intended for distribution outside Oregon.

Yates and McDonald were lodged at the Jackson County Jail on the following charges:

Charges:
Count 1 Unlawful Manufacture of Marijuana
Count 2 Unlawful Delivery of a Scheduled 1 Controlled Substance
Count 3 Unlawful Manufacture of Marijuana
Count 4 Unlawful importation/Exportation of Marijuana
Count 5 Possession of a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance
Count 6 Possession of a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance
Count 7 Unlawful Possession of Marijuana Extract
Count 8 Unlawful Delivery of Marijuana
Count 9 Unlawful Possession of Hydrocodone
