BEND, OR -- BEND, OR -- The Central Oregon Drug Enforcement team arrested three people for trafficking methamphetamine at a business on Southeast 9th in Bend, following a two-month investigation.
Detectives say 44-year-old Christine Padgett lived with 45-year-old Dustin Hull at the commercial building. They believe Padgett was selling drugs throughout Deschutes County.
A search, last week, of the 9th Street location uncovered two ounces of meth, user amounts of heroin and cocaine, and other evidence of sales and distribution of meth. They also arrested 35-year-old Jesse Shen in connection with the drug operation.
