NY: Drunken Felon charged in illegal hunting

Felon charged in illegal hunting

November 26, 2007

Fallsburg - A felon spent part of yesterday drinking and illegally luring deer to a South Fallsburg development so he could kill them, town police said.

A report of a man illegally hunting brought town police, state police and Department of Environmental Conservation police to the area at about 4:30 p.m.

There, town police said, they found Frank Solberg, 56, of South Fallsburg, along with a bait pile, a dead deer Solberg had no permit to kill and a rifle Solberg wasn't supposed to have because of a felony conviction - all within 500 feet of neighboring homes.

Solberg faces an array of misdemeanors: criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment, discharging a firearm with 500 feet of a dwelling, hunting big game intoxicated and having a blood-alcohol content of .10 percent or more, taking an antlerless deer without a valid permit and taking a deer with the aid of a pre-established bait pile.

He was held at Sullivan County Jail in lieu of $2,500.
