A Springfield man is facing multiple charges after Oregon State Police (OSP) Fish & Wildlife troopers served a search warrant related to the unlawful killing of several deer. The investigation started with a November 2009 arrest in Lake County and ended with the execution of a search warrant at the suspect's home and pending charges in Lane County.
On December 4, 2009, OSP Fish & Wildlife Division troopers from Bend and Springfield offices served a search warrant in the 1300 block of R Street in Springfield. The search warrant was authorized in connection with an investigation initiated by OSP Senior Trooper James Hayes' arrest of RANDYLL P. SCAIFE, age 30, from Springfield, on November 18, 2009 in Lake County. SCAIFE was arrested and lodged in Lake County Jail after killing a large 4x4 mule deer on Oatman Flats near Silver Lake.
During the subsequent investigation and search warrant service, OSP Fish & Wildlife troopers developed evidence of four unlawfully taken blacktail deer bucks. Troopers seized deer meat, spike elk antlers, and compound bow and arrows.
SCAIFE was cited to appear in Lane County Circuit Court on the following charges:
  • Theft in the First Degree (3 counts)
  • Unlawfully Taking Deer (4 counts)
  • Unlawfully Taking Elk (2 counts)
  • Theft of Lost, Mislaid Property
