MCMINNVILLE, Ore. - Federal agents say an Iranian citizen lied to get across the U.S.-Canadian border and then stashed weapons near the border after transporting them from McMinnville, according to a court document.
Agents said last Tuesday night Oliver King crossed the border on a false passport telling customs he had to pick up his wife at the Target store. But agents followed him down Interstate 5 to McMinnville, watched him pull up to an office building he leases which is a gun shop, load up boxes and drive back to Ferndale, Wash.
There in a storage unit, agents said they found a stash of $30,000 worth of law enforcement grade sniper rifles, handguns and ammunition. And on the boxes were shipping labels to McMinnville, Oregon.

If I was operating a foreign terrorist sleeper cell, I very well might choose Oregon for my base of operations.
So many opportunities, so many lefty lunatics.

Corvallis Oregon go to the local winco and you are in the fashion world of ME attire.
I wonder if there are other heavily populated areas around the state.
Probably any college town.
