BEND, OR -- A 19-year-old Bend man was arrested this week, after a short-term investigation by the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team. Christopher Deck was taken into custody near the southeast Bend Jimmy John's restaurant, Wednesday evening.
According to Detectives, Deck got a handgun from someone who legally purchased it from a local dealer. The weapon was illegally transferred to Deck, since he’s not 21 – the legal age to purchase a handgun. Investigators also recovered over 700 Xanax tablets, a prescription anxiety medication and a schedule IV controlled substance.
Following his arrest, detectives searched a southeast Bend home and found digital scales, packaging material and cash.
