News Release
OSP Concludes Firearms Investigation Involving Portland Man - Clackamas County - 09/15/16

On August 4, 2016 the Oregon State Police Patrol Division received a complaint of an alleged crime of Firearm Transfer by an Unlicensed Person (ORS 166.435). The complaint was based on media reports that, Jeremy P LUCAS, age 45, of Portland, had unlawfully transferred a firearm to a private party.

The investigation was challenging due to the lack of any evidence supporting the allegations. Further the fact that OSP did not secure a voluntary statement from LUCAS and no persons came forward with the name of who the firearm was transferred to made it difficult to prove or disprove this crime had occurred.

On September 9, 2016, the case was considered closed pending the development of new leads or information. The case was referred to the Clackamas County District Attorney's Office for review who advised OSP that they would not pursue criminal charges (see their decline letter which is attached).

No further information at this time.
