CRESWELL — Lane County sheriff’s deputies arrested a 50-year-old man after he allegedly barricaded himself in a Creswell Super 8 motel room and said he had explosives on Monday evening, the sheriff’s office said.
William Michael Cameron Jr. allegedly broke appliances, electrical fixtures and furniture in the motel room when deputies responded to the call at 5:54 p.m. Monday, the sheriff’s office said.
Deputies evacuated the motel and spoke to Cameron for about 10 minutes through a loud hailer before he exited the motel room through the front window and surrendered, Sgt. Brian Jessee said.
Cameron was allegedly under the influence of methamphetamine, and deputies found a small amount of meth in his motel room, Jessee said.
Deputies did not find explosives in Cameron’s room, the sheriff’s office said.
Cameron was lodged in the Lane County Jail on the charges of first-degree disorderly conduct, first-degree criminal mischief and unlawful possession of methamphetamine.
