Police: Gun, sniper book found in Ore. man's car
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — A Southern Oregon man is being held after he was stopped leaving a football game and authorities say a subsequent search of his house and car turned up military rifles, bullets and a book about a sniper killing people at a sporting event.
Rafael Enrique Amoroso was arrested Oct. 7 on a charge of driving under the influence after leaving a high school football game in Grants Pass.
Federal authorities have asked that he be held without bail while they investigate firearms charges. The 27-year-old Amoroso hasn't been indicted.
An affidavit says police found a loaded pistol in his glove compartment after he was stopped leaving the game, along with an untitled book with information about a sniper killing people at a sporting event.
The document also says police found military rifles and hundreds of rounds of ammunition in Amoroso's house and car.
It was unknown if Amoroso had an attorney.
