An investigation over several weeks resulted in a drug raid in Madras and the arrest of six adults and three juveniles Friday morning. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and officers from Madras Police Department and the Warm Springs Tribal Police served a search warrant at a home on SE 8th Street in Madras and confiscated digital scales, packaging material, nearly a pound of marijuana, and over $1500 in cash. The adults arrested and booked into jail were Patrick Walker, 30, Heather Walker, 26, Tim Walker, 27,  Jesse Richardson, 43, Cory Pendleton,  32, and Renee Hollenbeak, 19. Three children were cited and released. There were five other children in the home; the Oregon Department of Human Services placed the children with their family members in the Jefferson County area. The charges include possession, manufacture and distribution of marijuana within 1000 feet of a school (Buff Elementary) and child endangerment and neglect.
