GOLD BEACH, Ore. — A man wanted by the FBI for charges originating in Curry County has now been arrested in Nevada. 36 year-old Lucas DeYoung was wanted for a number of charges including attempted aggravated murder and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution after he apparently fled the state.

Yesterday, the Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP) came across a vehicle with Virgina plates pulled off to the side of the road on Interstate 80 in Nevada. A man was sleeping in the driver's seat of the vehicle. After making contact, a trooper determined that the driver matched the description of Lucas DeYoung provided by the FBI. DeYoung initially gave the trooper a fake name.

Upon arresting DeYoung, the NHP did a search of the vehicle and found several guns, ammunition and body armor. DeYoung was booked into the Humboldt County Jail in Nevada on new charges of a Felon in Possession of Firearms.

The Curry County District Attorney will be working with the State of Nevada to bring DeYoung back to Oregon and stand for his original charges. DeYoung is wanted in connection with the shooting of 46 year-old William Terebesi, from Brookings, on December 28th, 2017. However, 27 year-old Robert Kris Stanley has also been arrested in connection with the same shooting.

The shooting victim, William Terebesi, was convicted of third-degree rape back in 2004 after carrying on a relationship with a minor.
