MADRAS, OR -- Omar Benitez, 37 and Ruby Pacheco, 25 were arrested in Madras Wednesday by the US Marshals Service and the Oregon State Police.


Benitez has four outstanding warrants and is a convicted felon.


The Central Oregon Drug Enforcement team, in a subsequent search of the motorhome and garage where Benitez was found, uncovered commercial quantities of methamphetamine and cocaine, along with 14 firearms.


Pacheco was arrested because she was aware that Benitez was wanted and hindered his apprehension.


Both were held at the Jefferson County Jail.
