Six charged with drug crimes after advertisement gives operation away

An interesting piece of news popped up earlier this week. Apparently a home in North Portland was raided on Tuesday after police found fliers distributed throughout the neighborhood advertising the sale of illegal drugs at the residence listed.

Police apparently executed a search warrant on the home earlier Tuesday and arrested six of seven adults found inside the home. Those six adults were charged with various drug charges. A teenager in the home was put in protective custody following the raid.

Police reported finding almost 20 grams of marijuana, over 10 grams of heroin, thousands of dollars in cash, a sawed-off shotgun, and materials for a meth lab.

Involved in the operation were a 59-year-old man who was charged with deliver of heroin, possession of heroin and frequenting a place where controlled substances are used; a 58-year-old woman charged with possession of a controlled substance and devliery of a controlled substance; a 42-year-old man charged with possession of a controlled substance, deliver of a controlled substance and possession of precursor substances; a 36-year-old woman charged with possession of a controlled substance and frequenting a place where controlled substances are used; and two 34-year-old men charged with frequenting a place where controlled substances are used.

Sources said that a neighborhood response team apparently began an investigation of the drug operation over a year ago following multiple neighborhood complaints. Police were apparently informed about the drug operation by a neighbor who provided police with a flier advertising the sale of heroin and listing the address.
