An Oregon State Police (OSP) Fish & Wildlife trooper cited a Sandy man on charges related to the unlawful shooting Saturday of a large 4 point Blacktail deer on another person's property near Sandy.
On October 31, 2009 at approximately 12 noon OSP Trooper Mathew Fromme responded to a trespassing and hunting complaint on private property in the area of SE Ten Eyck Road near Roslyn Lake north of Sandy. Witnesses reported seeing a man in a Toyota pickup stop, get out and move to a fence from where he shot a large blacktail deer that was on private property with a doe deer. The man then moved his pickup to a second location, walked onto the private property to the dead deer and dragged it back to the pickup before leaving the area.
Witnesses were able to obtain a license plate and provided it to the trooper. The registration showed the pickup belonged to a nearby resident named LAMONT COLEMAN, age 45.
After completing witness interviews, Trooper Fromme went to COLEMAN's residence and spotted the pickup in a treed area behind the residence. Upon contact, Trooper Fromme saw COLEMAN was in the process of gutting the deer.
Subsequent to the investigation, COLEMAN was cited to appear in Clackamas County Circuit Court for two class A misdemeanor offenses:
  • Trespassing with a Firearm
  • Hunting on the Enclosed Land of Another
The deer and rifle were seized. The deer meat is to be processed and donated to the Portland Rescue Mission.
