BEND, OR -- Two men were arrested Monday by the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement (CODE) Team, on multiple drug and weapons charges. Detectives believe 23-year-old John Shivers (pictured, left), of Sacramento, transported narcotics and stolen guns to the Bend area. And, they suspect he pistol whipped an unnamed victim, Sunday night.
Shivers and 30-year-old Russell Hendrickson (right), of Bend, were in the back seat of a car pulled over by CODE, near NE 8th and Greenwood, Monday afternoon. Detectives say they found two handguns, one confirmed stolen and the other with an obliterated serial number, along with commercial quantities of heroin and user amounts of meth. The driver and front passenger were not charged and were released at the scene.
During booking at the jail, deputies found additional meth hidden on Hendrickson. He and Shivers face drug possession, manufacture and distribution charges, as well as being felons in possession of a firearm. Shivers is also charged with assault.
