A seasonal Oregon Department of Transportation employee may be charged with official misconduct for allegedly taking a car without the owner's permission and forging a title and registration. It all started the night of November 12th when a driver was arrested for DUII south of La Pine on Highway 97. The vehicle was left on the side of the road. Investigators believe that Heath Allen Hansen, 34, of La Pine used his ODOT position to report the vehicle as abandoned, and then removed the vehicle to his residence. Hansen claimed that he had contacted the registered owner of the vehicle to return it, but in fact the listed registered owner is not the current owner of the vehicle. That vehicle has since been returned to the real owner's girlfriend and Hansen faces several charges including theft, forgery, and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
