REDMOND, OR -- Redmond Police say officers responded to nearly 160 incidents in the 24 hours surrounding Independence Day; 50 involved illegal fireworks.


Wednesday afternoon, police responded to a fight between four people at American Legion Park. Authorities say two 17-year-olds confronted two adults who had sold them marijuana, asking for their money back; they claimed they were sold poor-quality pot. A knife was allegedly seen, but none was found by investigators. They arrested 21-year-old Sabastian Dubar (pictured above) and 20-year-old Dominica Wallace, both of Redmond, for unlawful delivery of marijuana. One teen was cited for being a minor in possession of marijuana. 


They're investigating a separate dispute reported at the fairgrounds, stemming from a disagreement over illegal fireworks. Redmond PD is also looking into a fire at John Tuck Elementary, where fireworks burned a tree. And, one officer allegedly witnessed an intoxicated man light an illegal firework; that man was arrested for a probation violation. 


RPD did not arrest any intoxicated drivers between 6 a.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday, but authorities say calls for service kept officers busy and unable to proactively look for impaired drivers.
