Four Arrested In Bend Drug Bust

BEND, OR -- The Central Oregon Drug Enforcement team served a search warrant at a Bend home Tuesday morning and arrested four people, following a one-year investigation. The house on Willopa Court was the subject of multiple calls and complaints from the community, including reports of drug activity.

Detectives say just two days before the bust, a person overdosed on fentanyl powder at the same location. That person survived. 

Fentanyl, meth, steroids and items used in drug sales were seized Tuesday. The four charged in the case were identified by CODE: 55-year-old Scott Sims, 44-year-old Timothy Kempher, 53-year-old Andrew Hill and 33-year-old Lea Marie Carlson. All are accused of Frequenting a Place Where Controlled Substances Are Used. Kempher also had a warrant for a parole violation and was in possession of illegal brass knuckles.
