Police: Man used dead woman's ID to apply for hunting tags

SANDY, Ore. - Police arrested a 68-year-old man on charges he used the name of a friend's dead 92-year-old mother to apply for deer and elk hunting tags.

The nearly 2-year-long investigation got indictments from the grand jury for Leroy Arlow Anderson, 68, of Sandy, Ore., on two felony counts of identity theft and two misdemeanor counts of false application for a hunting license.

The investigation started in November 2008 after OSP Senior Trooper Kreg Collins discovered a dead person's name was drawn for a rifle elk tag in the Snake River Unit in northeastern Oregon.

Coggins learned the woman, who died in November 2006, was also list in the licensing system as applying for deer and elk tags in 2007.

Coggins and OSP Fish & Wildlife troopers from the Portland Area Command office served a search warrant in June 2009 at Anderson's Sandy-area residence.

Information and evidence collected during the investigation resulted in a Clackamas County Circuit Court judge signing two felony warrants for Anderson's arrest on the felony identity theft charges.
