Prineville Man Accused Of Trafficking Fentanyl, Meth

SISTERS, OR -- A Prineville man faces drug trafficking charges, following a search of his vehicle by the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement team. Detectives say they concluded a long-term surveillance operation Saturday morning, and arrested 35-year-old Travis Ingram. They believe he imported significant quantities of fentanyl pills and meth from the Yamhill County area, and distributed them in Redmond and Prineville.

Ingram was arrested during a traffic stop outside Sisters. He was pulled over for tailgating. CODE drug detection K9 Bonnie (pictured) alerted to the presence of narcotics inside the vehicle. After obtaining a search warrant, detectives say they uncovered methamphetamine and counterfeit Oxycodone tablets containing fentanyl. 

He's charged with Unlawful Possession and Attempted Distribution of Fentanyl, and Unlawful Possession and Attempted Distribution of Methamphetamine.
