CROOKED RIVER RANCH, OR -- Central Oregon Drug Enforcement (CODE) team members discovered a Butane Honey Oil lab in Crooked River Ranch while searching a neighboring property for heroin and meth. In the first search, last week, police arrested 41-year-old Justin Hamilton (pictured), who lives at the Buckskin Lane home. He faces numerous drug charges, as well as being a felon in possession of a firearm. Detectives say they found a small amount of meth, heroin, digital scales and cash, as well as a handgun. 


Brandon Darrow, of Redmond, was also arrested. He arrived at Hamilton's house while police were executing the search warrant. He's charged with frequenting a place where drugs are used. Both men were taken to the Jefferson County Jail. 


During that investigation, Detectives learned of the BHO lab next door, and found Kailey Berg hiding in that house. Berg has not been charged in the ongoing investigation, and her case will be referred to the District Attorney's office.
