Dope peddlers galore busted in outer East Portland raids

Flash! Bang! See how many suspected drug dealers – and a meth lab – were busted during early-morning Centennial and Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhood missions …

Doesn’t look very inviting, does it? Oregon State Police say they found what they suspect is a meth lab in this trailer – and a bunch of seedy-looking folks they suspect were making drugs, dealing or using and/or theft suspects. OSP photo

The Flash-Bang Grenades that disturbed neighbors in the Centennial and Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhoods in the early hours of Jan. 18 was like, as one described it, waking up in a war zone.

“I thought I was being bombed by terrorists,” says Harold Jestings, a resident in the trailer park at SE 118th & SE Division St. in the Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhood.

It was, in fact, members of the Oregon State Police Meth Initiative Team (OSPMIT), with OSP troopers, serving a search warrant on the trailer in space #9.

“A total of nine people were taken into custody without incident. Evidence of a methamphetamine manufacturing operation was found at the scene including chemicals and glassware,” reports OSP Lieutenant Gregg Hastings.

“An investigation by OSPMIT detectives led to the arrest of nine people Friday morning in SE Portland on multiple charges,” Hasting continues. “The arrests stemmed from a joint investigation in Tillamook County earlier this month and included an arrest of a Pendleton-area woman wanted on an escape charge.”

In addition to the drug charges, Hastings adds, two of the women were arrested on theft charges after they were found in possession of a stolen coat and cell phone. The theft victim contacted detectives at the scene about the theft and the connection was made when the female suspects had possession the stolen property described by the victim.

Portland Police stage raids in Centennial

A squad of heavily-armed officers stormed this home, and the travel trailer behind it – and two other homes – as they executed search warrants in the Centennial Neighborhood.

Also, before the dawn broke on Jan. 18, Portland Police Bureau SERT with the assistance of tactical teams from Washington County and Oregon State Police executed search warrants three other residences.

“Teams were at residences in the 16000 block of SE Powell Blvd., 16900 block of SE Powell Blvd., and the 7300 block of SE Harney St. on behalf of the Drugs and Vice Division who were conducting a long term narcotics investigation,” stated Portland Police Bureau’s Sgt. Brian Schmautz.

Schmautz adds that members of the US Marshals Oregon Fugitive Task Force also assisted in the execution of the warrants.

Investigators arrested 44-year-old Jose Barragon-Garcia and 43-year-old Rosa Reyes-Inda and charged both with one count of Distribution of a Controlled Substance and one count of Possession of a Controlled Substance.

26-year-old Edwardo Ochoa-Reyes has also been taken into custody on a US Marshals narcotics related warrant.

“Information regarding the specific items seized during the warrant aren’t available at this time, Schmautz adds.
