LA PINE, OR -- Two people were arrested by the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement team, after detectives say they found a large quantity of methamphetamine during a traffic stop.


According to the CODE team, Alex Barajas of Culver, was suspected of trafficking drugs in Deschutes and Jefferson counties. When officers stopped a pickup in La Pine Monday night, a K-9 unit alerted to the presence of narcotics. 


Investigators say several pounds of meth were hidden in the dashboard and other compartments, valued at around $32,000. They also seized a small amount of other drugs. 
The driver of the pickup, 34-year-old Bonita Leonard of Warm Springs, and 31-year-old Barajas were both arrested for drug possession and other charges.
