Bend Trio Arrested By CODE

BEND, OR -- Three people were arrested over the weekend, following a multi-county investigation by the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement team. Detectives say 26-year-old Justin Vance sold large quantities of fentanyl in the area of the Lighthouse Navigation Center, near NE Second and Franklin in Bend. 

During a traffic stop Sunday in Terrebonne, CODE arrested Vance and his younger brother, along with the brother's girlfriend. Detectives seized a commercial quantity of fentanyl powder and pills from the vehicle.

Monday morning, they executed a search warrant and collected more evidence from the apartment 24-year-old David Vance shared with 20-year-old Katie Borden. They lived at the Frankline Hotel, which is one of three facilities on the Lighthouse Navigation Center campus. 

In a statement, the navigation center's Evan Hendrix said: 

We are grateful for the partnership with local law enforcement and appreciative of your support in this situation. We recognize the danger of fentanyl and its growing presence in our community. It is only through collaborative efforts such as this that we can find a way to curb this epidemic and ensure the safety of our community moving forward. Thank you for all you do to counter the flow of illicit substances into our community.”
