Roseburg men arrested for spotlight hunting

December 8, 2005

UMPQUA: Two Roseburg men were arrested for illegal hunting in the Umpqua area Wednesday night.

A nearby landowner saw Erik James Woods, 25, and Nicholas R. Miller, 23, illegally shining spotlights and trespassing on private property near Briarwood Lane around 10 p.m., according to an Oregon State Police report.

A trooper arrested the two for suspicion of shining an artificial light on a game mammal and criminal trespass with a firearm. Woods was also arrested on suspicion of second-degree criminal mischief and cited for allegedly driving under the influence of intoxicants and driving while suspended. His blood alcohol level was at .10 percent.

Two rifles and two high-powered spotlights were seized.
