A 32-year-old man driving a stolen vehicle was a Felon in possession of a Firearm
By Coos County Sheriff's Office,
On September 30th, 2023, around 9:25 a.m., Deputy H. Francis observed a black SUV driving on West Beaver Hill Rd in Coos Bay.
Deputy Francis recognized the vehicle and its license plate from a notice she received regarding the vehicle being stolen. Deputy Francis confirmed with Coos County Dispatch that the vehicle was indeed reported as stolen.
Deputy Francis pulled the vehicle over at Milepost 5 on Seven Devils Rd and ordered the driver out of the vehicle. The driver, Deven Dunn (32), complied with all commands and insisted he didn’t know the vehicle was stolen.
During a vehicle search, Deputy Francis located a 12 gauge shotgun in the back seat. Due to Mr. Dunn being a convicted felon he is not legally allowed to possess a firearm. Mr. Dunn told Deputy Francis that he simply “Found” the firearm.
Mr. Dunn was taken into custody for Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm and transported to the Coos County Jail where he was booked and held.
Thank you Deputy Francis for your attention to detail! Keep up the good work.
