Man arrested after caught hunting with light

October 24, 2005

ROSEBURG: A Roseburg man was arrested Friday after allegedly hunting at night with a light.

Oregon State Police troopers observed Eric B. Ponder, 35, and passenger Craig L. Flitcroft, 34, spotlighting in the South Deer Creek area from their pickup near midnight Friday, according to an Oregon State Police report. Troopers also found a rifle and ammunition in the pickup, and found Ponder was suspended from driving for fourth-degree assault.

Ponder was arrested on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm and driving while suspended. He also was arrested for a warrant in Roseburg for being a felon in possession of a firearm and a warrant in Josephine County for driving under the influence of intoxicants and reckless driving. He is lodged in the Douglas County Jail.

Flitcroft was cited for casting a light while armed.
