Deputies said a caller reported a dark-colored Chevrolet sport utility vehicle had been parked on the property and they wanted it removed. They responded and contacted the 42-year-old male driver and discovered that he was wanted on an Oregon State warrant for Parole Violation stemming from a previous conviction for Intimidation that included a Stalking Violation.
