MADRAS, OR -- Madras Police arrested half a dozen people during a sting operation late Friday. Officers targeted homes they say are known to be gathering places for people involved in illegal drug activity. They also worked with County corrections to check on those on parole or probation.
At a house on NE 10th, they arrested 20-year-old Tristan Fiscus (top, left) for a probation violation, 44-year-old Erin Joyner (top, center) for an outstanding parole board warrant, and 29-year-old Davis Stwyer, Jr. (top, right) for suspicion of domestic violence. The Stwyer case is being investigated by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
Two more men were taken into custody at a mobile home on 'B' Street; both 30-year-old John Axsom (bottom, left) and 37-year-old Victor Axsom (bottom, center) are accused of violating probation.
And, in the same area, they arrested 50-year-old Jeffrey Fields (bottom, right) for failing to register as a sex offender. They also contacted Fields' significant other, who gave police false information. Officers didn't discover her identity until later, and say 45-year-old Elaine Severson has an outstanding warrant from Linn County. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call Madras Police at 541-475-2424 or dispatch at 541-475-2201.
