(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Oregon State Police an investigation by their Meth Initiative Team detectives led to the arrest of nine people this morning in SE Portland on multiple charges.

Lieutenant Gregg Hastings with the state police says the arrests stemmed from a joint investigation in Tillamook County earlier this month and included an arrest of a Pendleton-area woman wanted on an escape charge.

Hastings says that around 7:00 AM this morning, detectives, SWAT Team members and police troopers, served a search warrant at a trailer park located at 11803 SE Division #9.

"A total of nine people were taken into custody without incident. Evidence of a methamphetamine manufacturing operation was found at the scene including chemicals and glassware," Hastings said.

In addition to the drug charges, two of the women were arrested on theft charges after police say they were found in possession of a stolen coat and cell phone.

Hastings says it became clear when the theft victim contacted detectives at the scene about the theft and the connection was made when the female suspects had the stolen property described by the victim.

Earlier this month Hastings says, a joint investigation by Tillamook County Sheriff's Office and OSPMIT detectives led to the arrest of 14 people. Information and evidence during that investigation, led to today's search warrant and arrests.

i think its horible to do this it runnins every thing its crazy how people can do this to there self dont cross the line.

Go ahead and leaglize meth, cocaine, and heroin. I would be real interested to wee what happens to the crime and unemployment rate in oregon. Do you honestly think these freaking tweekers will suddenly stand up and get jobs and take responsibility for their lives. They are still going to break into your car and your house to get the money to buy their state sanctioned dope. Honestly, what is wrong with you people!

You're sure they were charged appropriately? You know nothing about law or law enforcement. All of the money spent on this bogus drug war could be spent on health care so that people with problems can go to professionals and get the meds and treatment they need. If they need it for the rest of their lives, so be it. I never lived next to a tweaker but lived next to a cop. The cop was totally out of control and should have been locked up. Gee, I wonder why he wasn't? I wish you cops living on both sides of your house and you will see what bad and illegal behavior is all about.


Are you smoking crack January 20, 20 January 20, 2008 5:34 pm (Pacific time)

Clearly neither one of you have been a victim of a tweeker. Had them living next door to you destroying your property values and breaking into your vehicles. I think you're both smoking crack. And in case you missed it the meth labs are all but gone in this state compared to when law enforcement was busting 300 - 400 a year. The meth problem is still there but at least the damage done by meth labs in this state is finally on the decline. How would you like to rent or buy a home and move your family into it only to have your family getting sick or developing cancer and finding out later that someone was cooking dope there? As for the frequenting charges, I'm sure they were charged appropriately.

Like Kristina Marine Warrilow... look at it... what is the sum total of crimes she is charged with? The crime of SIMPLY BEING THERE. Does anyone else see the inherent problem with that? Ah well...


Neal Feldman January 19, 2008 8:10 pm (Pacific time)

I looked at the 'offense' of "Frequenting a Place Where Controlled Substances are Used" with a bit of a jaundiced eye myself... how they heck does a statute like that pass constitutional muster? Talk about guilt by association! But like usually happens with failed policies like Prohibition those trying to promote the failed policies find themselves having to get more unreasonable and more draconian and more autocratic in their attempts until the whole sham collapses under the weight of unreason. Am I saying meth is a great thing> Of course not. But likewise abuse of alcohol is not good either and causes far more deaths and harm, same with tobacco, and they are both entirely legal for adult use. Far better to just legalize them all, tax and regulate, properly fund education and treatment that would then no longer require admission of felonious behavior to seek treatment and so on... it has helped get the harms from alcohol and tobacco down. Eliminated? No. But the War on Some Drugs has not exactly eliminated the drug use or drug trade now has it? To paraphrase a nugget of wisdom... "The tighter you make your grip the more slips through your fingers until you are holding nothing... you cannot grasp mud by holding it more tightly. Ah well...


It's True January 19, 2008 3:51 pm (Pacific time)

Frequenting a place were controlled substances are used sounds like a police station....like steroids and who knows what. These people are real sick and need major psych treatment and care.
