SAN FRANCISCO A Mentor Graphics vice president has been arrested for allegedly obtaining false hunting license and game tags, according to a report published Thursday (July 28) in The Oregonian.

According to the report, Dennis Weldon, vice president of corporate development and investor relations, was arrested by Oregon State Police earlier in the month after police searched his home and found a number of hunting license and game tags. The Oregonian said Weldon is accused of applying for the licenses and tags in the name of relatives, one of which is deceased.

The Portland, Ore.-based paper cited an application for a police search warrant as saying Weldon also used his own name on some of the licenses, but with a different birth date.

A spokesperson for Mentor Graphics said Friday that the company had no comment on the report, other than that it was a matter for the courts.

Weldon has held several senior level financial positions during his tenure at Mentor. Prior to joining the company, Weldon worked at Tektronix Corp. and two financial companies.

Mentor reported second quarter financial results Friday, posting a net loss of $6.8 million on revenue of $154.8 million.
