The Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team and Bend Police took about $13,000 worth of methamphetamine off the streets recently.
Last Thursday, police stopped a car on NE Olney Avenue driven by Jessica Smith of Bend, who was under investigation at the time by the CODE team.
When the car stopped, her passenger Brian Fee, 46, jumped out and ran away; but police were able to apprehend him a short time later. He was taken into custody on meth possession.
Further investigation leads detectives to a residence on N. Highway 97 where they seized more meth, drug paraphernalia, two guns, marijuana, psilocybin mushrooms and dug sales and distribution evidence.
James Babcock, 38, of Bend was arrested at the residence, and Smith and Fee were also arrested. All three are in the Deschutes County Jail on various drug charges.
