HAPPY VALLEY, OR (KPTV) - A man was found hiding in bushes with an "alarming array of gear," according to the Happy Valley Police Department.

On Monday, deputies received a call from a homeowner who said a man was in her backyard in the area of Portland View Place and Southeast 132nd Avenue.

Deputies arrived to the scene and found a man, identified as 41-year-old Jason Alan Dvorak, hiding in nearby bushes.

When deputies contacted Dvorak, the police department said they located Night Vision goggles, a flashlight, a police-style baton, an illegal knife, a face mask, a heated vest, and odor eliminator.

The police department said Dvorak was also in possession of a syringe.

According to the police department, Dvorak said he had the items because he was looking for deer.

Dvorak was arrested and booked into the Clackamas County Jail on a charge of felon in possession of a restricted weapon.

The police department said Dvorak denied being in any backyards.

Most likely just another spun out tweeker


He could probably play off his story about deer with the scent eliminator but you don't hunt deer with a police baton OR at night (laws and all). My big question is: what's in the syringe? Was it empty? Drugs? Or something more nefarious, like a tranquilizer for humans?

This guy was prepared to evade police dogs as well. He definitely had an agenda.
