BEND, OR -- Eight people were arrested as part of an ongoing investigation into suspected drug activity at a Bend property on Northeast 12th Street. Bend Police had received multiple complaints regarding traffic at the home.
While conducting surveillance last week, officers watched a pickup stop at the house for a short time then leave. They pulled it over and arrested four people from Mill City: 21-year-old Jesse Gust, 34-year-old Klint Wise, 57-year-old Janene Gust and 61-year-old Randy Resch. Investigators seized 97 grams of meth, a third of which was packaged for sales. Wise reportedly attempted to escape and resisted arrest; had an out-of-state warrant and is also charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.
On Sunday, investigators executed a search warrant and arrested four Bend residents: 31-year-old Micaela Zacarias, 38-year-old Leah Atkins, 42-year-old Rachel Mahoney and 45-year-old Ryan Atkins. Detectives also discovered five children at the home. Officers seized more meth and evidence consistent with drug sales.
