BEND, OR -- A Bend man faces multiple charges, including Money Laundering and Possession and Distribution of Controlled Substances, following an investigation by the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement (CODE) Team. Detectives arrested 46-year-old Daniel Parkhurst last week as he left the Bend Postal Connections store.
Following his arrest, investigators searched his home on Princeton Loop and seized large amounts of controlled substances, including more than 2,800 Oxycodone pills, with a street value of $100,000. Additional anabolic steroids, human growth hormones and prescription drugs were also taken, valued at approximately $50,000.
Investigators say Parkhurst purchased large quantities of the drugs from overseas, then would sell them throughout the region, while maintaining some for personal use. This is an ongoing CODE investigation.
