Police Arrest Wanted Fugitive, Seize Meth During Salem Traffic Stop

He was wanted out of Pierce County, Washington on a felony Child Rape in the Second Degree warrant.


(SALEM) - A traffic stop in Salem Saturday evening resulted in the arrest of one person after approximately 9 ounces of crystal methamphetamine was located in the vehicle.

The suspect initially provided a false name but further follow-up positively identified him as a fugitive from Washington State wanted on an outstanding child rape warrant.

At approximately 6:15 PM, Oregon State Police Northern Command Center received information of a vehicle believed to have been involved in a drug deal along Interstate 5 in the Albany area.

Shortly after the report, an OSP trooper spotted the 1991 Jeep Cherokee on a Salem city street and stopped it.

During the stop, a search of the vehicle led to the discovery of approximately 9 ounces of crystal methamphetamine.

The driver was taken into custody for Possession of a Controlled Substance and lodged in the Marion County Jail.

A check of fingerprints through the Automated Fingerprint Identification System determined the suspect's true identity was 28-year-old Adan Castaneda-Perez , age 28, from Seattle, Washington.

Castaneda-Perez remains in custody at the jail on charges of Fugitive From Justice and Possession of a Controlled Substance.

Police do not have information regarding the incident that led to the Washington State warrant, but Washington law does indicate 2nd Degree Rape of a Child involves a victim who is 12 - 14 years old and the offender is at least 36 months older than the victim.
