    News Release from Oregon State Police - Statewide

    A Grants Pass man was arrested at his residence on Tuesday, March 24th, 2015, on charges related to the theft of multiple firearms from the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety evidence locker.

    On February 12th, 2015, the Oregon State Police Major Crimes Section in Central Point, at the request of the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety, initiated a criminal investigation into the disappearance of multiple firearms from their evidence storage facility. Grants Pass Department of Public Safety administrators learned of the missing firearms after an audit was conducted at the facility.

    As part of the investigation, the Oregon State Police conducted interviews of people who have had access to the facility over a period of time when the weapons were last known to be present. During the investigation, information was obtained leading to the implication and subsequent arrest of LEE DARROW, age 73, from Grants Pass, on 27 counts of Theft in the First Degree.

    DARROW, a retired Grants Pass City Fire employee, had been volunteering his time at the facility specifically assisting with the handling of firearms. Oregon State Police investigators subsequently recovered multiple firearms from various locations within the Southern Oregon area.

    The Oregon State Police is asking anyone who has had dealings or knows of anyone who has had dealings with DARROW related to the sale or transfer of firearms, to contact Lead Detective Deanna Harris at the Oregon State Police Central Point Area Command.

    This could've been prevented. All evidence lockers should have signs posted - "Do Not Steal Firearms"

    That is exactly what I was thinking. Maybe that arrogant d00shb@g Floyd Prozanski could explain how this sort of thing will not happen with his wet dream of UBCs.

    Temptation got the better of Darrow. The sad thing is if he rolls a pleas bargain and starts naming folks who bought his hot hog legs. I bet he had a Chl and all the ID one could want...
    And people wonder why some people don 't trust the cops. Couldn't even keep their house in order. Wasn't a volunteer he took his work out in iron.
    I just hope no on got scammed by this dude.

    Brutus out
