Police Bust Alleged Drug Distribution Cells In Portland

(Portland, OR) -- Police say a pair of drug distribution cells with connections to Mexico have been busted in the Portland area. Federal agents and local police worked nearly a year to identify the suspects. A federal grand jury issued indictments for two ringleaders and more than a dozen associates who allegedly transported the drugs from California to Oregon. Agents seized 200-thousand counterfeit oxycodone pills suspected to contain fentanyl, two pounds of fentanyl powder, 40 pounds of methamphetamine, 45 pounds of heroin, 13 pounds of cocaine, nine guns and nearly one-and-a-half million dollars in cash.
