Bend Woman Arrested For Weapons Offense

BEND, OR -- Bend Police say a 33-year-old passenger pointed a gun at the driver of another vehicle, near NE 27th and Bear Creek Rd, Tuesday morning. Officers responded just before 10:30 a.m., where witnesses told them the woman was in an orange VW GTI.

Within minutes, a police drone operator located the suspect car at the 7-Eleven at Third and Franklin. Officers conducted a high-risk traffic stop in the parking lot; that means they had guns drawn while ordering the people out of the car. The driver and passenger complied.

Heather Gentry was arrested on changes of Menacing and Carrying a Concealed Weapon. Bend PD says a handgun was found in a purse inside the car.
