Numerous arrests made at two drug house busts

Judges set most of them free from jail, pending trial. But, you’ll likely be surprised at how many people were caught up these drug warrants …

SE Harney Street, here Lents neighborhood, looks like a typical outer East Portland residential road but, in these blocks, police serve search warrants at two locations.

After neighbors complained about drug activity in the vicinity of the 8000 block of SE Harney Street, Portland Police Bureau (PPB) officers took action on December 17.

“The PPB East Precinct’s Neighborhood Response Team and their Street Crimes Unit were the lead investigatory groups for the warrants,” remarked PPB Public Information Officer Sergeant Brad Yakots. The warrant service apparently took place in the morning, and early afternoon, of the 17th.

Officers swarm one of the two locations being served with a search Warrant.

“A total of 24 individuals were detained at the two locations,” Yakots informed. “18 of those individuals were transported and lodged into the Multnomah County Detention Center (MCDC) on various charges.”
