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.
