EUGENE, Ore. – Eugene Police arrested 32-year-old Travis William Ray Bean on Tuesday after a post surfaced on Facebook reportedly showing the convicted felon shooting an AK-47 rifle.

Police said they were alerted to the post on April 30 and eventually obtained a search warrant for Bean’s home on Bramblewood Lane in Eugene.

Detectives said they found a rifle in the home and a pistol which had been reported stolen from a burglary in 2018. Detectives also reportedly found a pound of meth in Bean’s bedroom closet.

Police said SWAT teams were used to arrest Bean at his home on Tuesday. Bean is being held at the Lane County Jail facing several charges, including felon in possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of meth and maintaining a drug house.

Court records show Bean has had run-ins with the law in the past. In 2015, he was convicted of possessing meth as well as breaking into a vehicle. Bean was sentenced to 15 days in jail and put on probation for those charges. He was charged with possession of meth again a year later, but those charges were dismissed.
