On January 5,  Eugene Police’s Street Crimes Unit officer developed information that 33 year-old Joseph Allen Dexter was staying at an apartment in the 1600 block of Oakpatch Road. Dexter is a convicted felon with multiple outstanding warrants for his arrest. Additionally, he was believed to be in possession of a handgun. An SCU officer was granted a search warrant, and though an un-serialized “ghost gun” was recovered at the apartment, Dexter was not contacted and is still outstanding.  

SCU is requesting the public’s assistance in locating Dexter. Anyone with information related to Dexter’s whereabouts can contact SCU Officer Cook at (541) 914-7644 or .
