BEND, OR -- Three men face drug-related charges following a long-term, interstate investigation into trafficking cocaine in the Bend area. The Central Oregon Drug Enforcement (CODE) team arrested 40-year-old Devin Pohl, last week, after they say he picked up a shipment of cocaine in a west Bend parking lot.
Detectives then executed search warrants at a commercial space in downtown Bend, two Bend homes and one in Long Beach, California where they seized more evidence of the operation, including cash, cocaine and other drugs.
