Salem Police arrested Jeremy DUNMAN, 19 yrs (dob: 03/19/93) of 4624 Eva Ct. NE, Salem, at 1:45am, Sun,(5/27/12), after Salem SWAT made an entry into the residence, searching for DUNMAN. Patrol Officers had initially responded to the residence at 7:30pm, Sat. (05/26/12), to follow up on a menacing incident involving a weapon which occurred on Friday (05/25/12).
