Fugitive Arrested (Photo) - 09/11/19

Dillard, Ore. - This morning at about 8:30 a.m. the Lane County Sheriff’s Office advised our agency that Franklin Lefever, age 51, a wanted fugitive who was considered armed and dangerous, might be staying in a gravel lot just south of the Dillard Store in Dillard.

Just before 9:00 a.m. Douglas County deputies located Lefever’s white Toyota pickup and his motor home in the 9400 block of Old Hwy 99 South.  Officers made contact and detained one female subject.  Lefever was found to be in the motor home and initially refused to come out but surrendered after about 20 minutes.

Lefever was taken into custody and lodged in the Douglas County Jail on warrants out of Douglas County charging him with Fail to Report as a Sex Offender and Second Degree Criminal Trespass, as well as additional warrants out of Lane County.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Oregon State Police, Roseburg Police Department and Winston Police Department.
