MADRAS, OR -- The Central Oregon Drug Enforcement team has released details of a Jefferson County drug bust conducted in May. Authorities say the delay in information was due to the ongoing investigation. 

 

CODE detectives suspected 47-year-old Ronald Thrasher was trafficking methamphetamine and asked local agencies to try and locate him. Talina Ortiz was pulled over by State Police while driving Thrasher’s car on May 19. The 43-year-old Prineville woman was arrested on multiple drug charges and an outstanding warrant. Thrasher arrived at the stop and was also taken into custody. 
 
While executing a search warrant at his Madras home, detectives found over 15 pounds of meth, nearly $17,000 in cash, a gun reported stolen from Portland and other evidence.
