DSCO ‘fake flier’ given to residents in La Pine, falsely accusing person as sex offender

LA PINE, Ore. (KTVZ) — Last week, La Pine residents in the area of Day Rd. received a flier from the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office in their mailboxes. While the flier looked legit, in reality, it was phony.

This fake flier names a person (whose identity has been blacked out for security reasons), stating they are a sex offender living in the area. While it’s not completely uncommon for vigilantes to inform others about a sex offender in the neighborhood, the information in this fake flier is untrue.

Sgt. Jayson Janes with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that the flier is fake. The Sheriff’s Office has opened an investigation and is searching for the person responsible for creating the flier. There has never been a Deputy Harlo at the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office. The person responsible could be charged with Criminal Impersonation of a Public Servant.

According to a Facebook post, fliers were placed in mailboxes on Day Rd between 10:30 am on 9/18 to 8:30 am on 9/19.

If you saw something, have any information, or security camera/Ring Doorbell video depicting suspicious activity at the mailboxes on or near Day Rd, DSCO urges you to call non-emergency and reference case #22-51006.

Carly Keenan is meeting with Sgt. Jayson Janes to learn more about the case. She’ll have the full report on NewsChannel 21 at Five.
