On May 28, 2020, we published a story titled: “Does the road LEAD to Antelope?”

  We reported following up on some leads in the Antelope area that included the execution of a sealed search warrant.

Last October we reported the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office convened a Grand Jury to investigate and subpoena witnesses to appear.

Today, Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins confirmed, Troy Ernest Patrick, of Antelope Oregon has been Indicted/Arrested on “2 counts of arson 1” for the law office fire. Patrick is currently being held at the Wasco County Jail in The Dalles with Bail set at $200K.

This is an on-going story.
