Oregon City Meth Raid Arrests: Meth, Weapon and Immigration ChargesSalem-News.com
All three men arrested are described as illegal immigrants.
(OREGON CITY) - A meth raid in Clackamas County led to the discovery of a kilo of methamphetamine according to investigators, with an assessed street value of $16,000. Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Spokesman Jim Strovink says an Inter Agency Task Force targeted this specific residence over reports of drug activity.
"This law enforcement body, with a compliment of 25 law enforcement personnel, executed a search warrant at this address seeking methamphetamine."
The operation that was launched just after 8:00 AM Wednesday morning when officers from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office SWAT and Clackamas County Inter Agency Task Force, converged on the residence in the 12000 block of SE 172nd Avenue, in Happy Valley.
It is reported that three men and one woman were in the residence, as well as three children; one 12, one 14 and an infant.
Strovink says no injuries were reported during the execution of this search warrant, and that is fortunate as one of the men is alleged to have had a loaded gun on him.
"In addition to this large, dealer quantity of methamphetamine, packaging material, false articles of identification and almost $1,000 in cash were found."
Two handguns were also located during the execution of this search warrant investigators say, turning up one of the handguns in a bedroom, and the additional handgun concealed on one of the male subjects who was arrested.
This armed subject in custody is identified as 34-year old Adolfo Quantas Sagrero, identified as an illegal immigrant, who is reported to have been deported previously to his native country, Mexico. Strovink says he is found to have recently reentered these United States illegally.
Sagrero has been lodged in the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Jail with the charges of: Distributing a controlled substance with $50,000 bail, Violation of Parole for which there is zero bail, and an Immigration hold with zero bail.
The additional male subjects arrested at the scene and located inside this residence are identified as two brothers: 45-year old Luciano Reyesrio and 40-year old Pedro Reyesrio.
Strovink says that both of these men, declared as illegal, were arrested at the scene and lodged in the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office for the related charges of Distributing a controlled substance with $50,000 bail and an immigration hold for which there is no bail.
The female located in the residence at the time of this search warrant was not arrested, and allowed to remain at this residence with her 3 children.
