19 regional, state and national law enforcement agencies worked in tandem to put a "crack" in a major Central Oregon methamphetamine trafficking ring.

 

On October 3rd, police served warrants in eight locations in Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook Counties, arresting 14 suspects and seizing meth, 17 firearms, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, packaging materials, cash and other items.

 

CODE detectives say the investigation began in 2012 with the discovery of a large scale trafficking operation in the area. Officials were able to identify the leadership and middle management of the organization as well as regular customers.

 

Officials say they designed the take down to occur simultaneously at all 8 locations to prevent the suspects from communicating with each other.

 

The suspects are lodged in the Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson County jails.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
