OSP Drug Bust Bend 1-19-22

Some bad driving on Highway 97 near Bend leads to an arrest on various drug offenses.

Oregon State Police say a trooper stopped an SUV for a lane use violation on northbound 97 north of Fort Thompson Lane around 5:00 p.m. Thursday.

“During the traffic stop, the Trooper noticed signs of criminal activity, and a consent search of the vehicle was conducted,” OSP said in a press release. “During a search of the vehicle, the Trooper located approximately 10 pounds of suspected methamphetamine and approximately five pounds of suspected powder fentanyl concealed within the vehicle.”

OSP said a K-9 assisted in the investigation by alerting the trooper to the odor of controlled substances in the location where the drugs were hidden.

A 28-year-old from Oakland was taken to the Deschutes County Jail, OSP said.
