Two arrested in drug raid on NE Bend apartment


Two men were arrested Thursday in a drug raid on a northeast Bend apartment, one a resident who police said Friday had been distributing methamphetamine from his apartment, prompting several calls to police by concerned neighbors.

Bend police served a search a warrant around 9:30 a.m. at the Quimby Street Apartments, Lt. Clint Burleigh said.

Officers with the department’s Intelligence-Led Policing Team received information that a resident had been selling methamphetamine, Burleigh said. He added that the case became a priority because the facility is designed to house people 62 or older, as well as people with disabilities.

Several residents and other neighbors had called police to report an increased amount of short-term traffic going to the apartment. Burleigh said officers were able to take information from several sources to apply for and receive the search warrant.

Team officers and detectives contacted a resident, Stacey Wade Sibert, 47, and Ronald John Bergevin, 53, a transient and Bend resident, Burleigh said.

They gathered evidence to confirm Sibert was distributing meth from his apartment. He also had a loaded handgun concealed on his person when contacted, Burleigh said.

Bergevin was found to possess meth and suspected LSD. Officers also found evidence that he was a registered sex offender who had failed to register at the new address within 10 days.

Both were taken to the Deschutes County Jail, where Sibert was booked on charges including meth possession and delivery within 1,000 feet of a school (Marshall High School), as well as carrying a concealed weapon and frequenting a place where drugs are used, kept or sold. He remained held Friday on $30,000 bail.

Bergevin was charged with meth and LSD possession, frequenting and failure to register as a sex offender. He also remained held Friday on $35,000 bail.

Burleigh said police make it a priority goal to make residents feel safe within their community. He said the investigation was completed within two weeks, based on the circumstances.

“The Bend Police Department encourages our community members to contact us when they feel their community or neighborhood is experiencing criminal behavior,” Burleigh added.
