July 2016 – While assisting in an investigation regarding an illegal turkey case, CO Mark Papineau learned of a deer that was possibly taken without a license during the 2015 deer season. After further inquiries, CO Papineau was able to locate a photograph taken after dark in mid-October of the suspect posing with a 7 point buck. An inquiry into hunting license purchases revealed that the subject had purchased a deer license during daylight hours the day after the photograph was reportedly taken. After an additional inquiry was made, a second photograph was located of a 10 point buck, also taken after dark during November. A second license inquiry revealed that the suspect’s wife had also purchased a deer license after hunting hours had ended on the same day. Interviews were conducted and both suspects confessed to shooting the deer without licenses. Warrants are being sought.
