DCSO team makes 7 drug arrests near Redmond


The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office’s new Community Action Target Team targeted suspected drug activity at a home west of Redmond on Tuesday, making several traffic stops and arresting seven people as they left the area, officers said Wednesday.

The eight-person CATT patrol team, including DCSO street-crimes detectives and patrol deputies, used both marked and unmarked cars during the operation, sheriff’s Sgt. William Bailey said.

The area was targeted after the sheriff’s office received information from neighbors in the area about suspected drug activity at the home on a stretch of Northwest Oak Avenue west of Northwest 35th Street, he said.

The CATT effort also involved K-9 Ezel and his partner, Deputy Jeremiah Johnson. Ezel is dual-certified in both drug detection and apprehension, Bailey said.

Four people were arrested and held at the Deschutes County Jail, including:

-Andrew Johnston, 33, of Redmond, on charges of methamphetamine possession and delivery, heroin possession, supplying contraband, felon in possession of a restricted weapon, driving with a suspended license and a parole violation warrant.

-Shawna Park, 37, of Eugene, on meth and heroin possession charges.

-Breanne Peters, 26, of Redmond, on heroin possession and probation violation, and

-Jacob Richter, 20, on heroin possession, manufacture and delivery charges, as well as giving false information to a police officer and an out-of-county warrant for dangerous drugs.

Three people were arrested by citation and released: Milo Cross, 37, of Redmond, charged with heroin possession; Cameron Shelby, 29, of Terrebonne, charged with meth possession, and Kayla Monson, 26, of Prineville, charged with meth and heroin possession.

It was the second round of arrests in connection with a suspected drug house in the northwest Redmond area in less than a week. Three residents, including a mother and son, were arrested last Thursday in a Redmond police raid on a home in the 300 block of Northwest Hemlock Court.

The Northwest Oak Avenue drug investigation is continuing, Bailey said.

“The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is committed to community safety and addressing quality of life issues for the citizens and visitors of Deschutes County,” Bailey said in a news release.

“The CATT will be utilized in an ongoing basis to focus on areas within Deschutes County needing additional enforcement in the areas of distracted driving, illegal drug possession and sales, theft, trespass and criminal mischief issues.

“The team will utilize a number of patrol and investigative platforms, including marked and unmarked patrol vehicles, in addition to foot and bicycle patrols. We will have deputies in uniform and wearing plain clothes, whichever is best suited to accomplish these proactive patrols,” he concluded.

Sheriff Shane Nelson said, “I am very pleased with the results of the Community Action Target Team so far. I look forward to the ongoing proactive efforts of this team and our future targeted patrols to ensure public safety in Deschutes County.”
