Weapons Charges, Oct. 12 North Bay Rd., CCSO release – On October 10, 2018 at approximately 11:41 am, Coos County Deputies were dispatched to 65853 North Bay Lane for a report of shots having been fired in the direction of a person. When the Deputies made contact with the home owner, Joseph Galino, said he had purchased the property from the Coos County Sheriff’s Sale and was attempting to photograph his property. The home had been foreclosed by a bank and sold at auction by the Sheriff’s Office pursuant to Oregon Law. Mr. Galino said he made contact with the foreclosed owner of the home, 59-year old Anthony Schultz, NB, and a verbal argument that devolved into a shoving incident occurred. The new owner, Galino, said as he was walking away from the property he heard shots being fired and he believed he was being shot at. When the Deputies arrived at 11:49 am they spoke with Anthony Scholtz, the former owner of the foreclosed property. Scholtz admitted to the investigators that he discharged his gun in the direction of North Bay Road and in the direction of his neighbor’s property. Scholtz said he fired the shots to make sure the new owner of the property understood that he was to leave. Deputies recovered a .22 caliber pistol and several spent cartridge casings at the scene. Coos Health and Wellness was asked to respond to evaluate Mr. Scholtz and they spoke but he refused any services from them. Mr. Scholtz was transported to the Coos County Jail where he was booked on the charges of Unlawful Use of a weapon, Menacing, and Discharging a Weapon on or Across a Highway or Ocean Shore Recreation Area. He is currently being held with a bail amount set at $35,000 as of this morning.
