Springfield Man Arrested for Displaying a Firearm on Interstate - 5 north of Salem

A Springfield area man was arrested on Monday afternoon by Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers for multiple counts of Menacing and Unlawful use of a Firearm on Interstate -5 north of Salem.  OSP troopers from Salem and Albany Area Commands are continuing the investigation. 


According to Trooper Nick Rhoades, on May 6, 2013 at approximately 3:30 p.m., the OSP Northern Command Center received multiple calls of a person in a green Pontiac passenger car southbound on Interstate near milepost 260 displaying a firearm at other motorists.  A motorist followed the green Pontiac and provided the OSP Northern Command Center with updated locations until troopers could locate it. 


OSP troopers from Salem and Albany Area Commands located the green Pontiac, driven by ANDREW DELORME, age 20, from Springfield, and stopped it on Interstate - 5 south of Albany.  Subsequent investigation led to the arrest of DELORME for three counts of Menacing and one count of Unlawful use of a Firearm.  DELORME was lodged at the Marion County Correctional Facility (Jail) for the listed crimes. 


No photographs available for release.
