Shortly before midnight, 06-30-10, Kelly Mason was taken into custody on Finch Rd. near Redwood Hwy. without incident and lodged in the Josephine County Jail.
As a result of the continuing investigation into the shooting that took place on 06-25-10, tip information was developed which allow deputies to identify Mason's location in the Illinois Valley. Due to the seriousness of Mason's crimes, we requested the assistance of the Jackson County Sheriff's Office SWAT unit. Surveillance was established on Mason's campsite along Rough and Ready Creek. Sheriff;s deputies waited until Mason left the campsite in a vehicle, which was stopped on Finch Rd. near Redwood Hwy.
We would like to thank the Jackson County Sheriff;s Office for their invaluable service and assistance in the apprehension of Kelly Mason. We would also like to thank the community who provided the necessary tip information that ultimately lead to a peaceful resolution to this incident.
