On August 30, 2022, the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team (DINT) executed a search warrant on a large-scale illegal marijuana operation occurring in the remote timber area in Tiller, Oregon. During the execution of the search warrant, detectives seized and destroyed 15,925 marijuana plants, 4,120 pounds of processed marijuana, and seized three firearms. 

The illegal operation was occurring on privately owned land, surrounded by federal timber land. Parts of the operation were also being conducted on the federal timber land. In addition to the unlawful manufacture of marijuana, detectives found multiple unpermitted structures, trash, debris, and human waste spread throughout the property. Water was also being illegally impounded and diverted to holding tanks on the property to be used for the illegal operation.

Multiple individuals attempted to flee on foot from law enforcement. The following individuals were arrested and transported to the Douglas County Jail:

  • Leonel Sanchez Correa, 28 years of age, from Modesto, California
  • Eduardo Zuniga Mora, 26 years of age, Unknown address
  • Jose Luis Perez Hernandez, 25 years of age, Unknown address

  • Avelino Salomon Cerrano, 42 years of age, Unknown address
  • Braulio Gomez Tapia, 49 years of age, Unknown address

This investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are anticipated.

DINT was assisted by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Lane County Sheriff’s Office, United States Forest Service, Winston Police Department, Douglas County Watermaster, and Douglas County Code Enforcement. 

--------------------------------------

On September 14, 2022, at about 0400 hours, DINT conducted an operation in the 700 block of Garden Valley Boulevard, in Roseburg, Oregon. Detectives contacted an individual in the parking lot of a local business. 

During the contact detectives deployed canine Trapper to the suspects vehicle, in which Trapper indicated the presence of controlled substances.

During a search of the vehicle detectives located approximately 15 ounces of “rainbow” fentanyl and 2 ounces methamphetamine. These controlled substances were all destined to the Douglas County area. 

Multicolored fentanyl is a trend DINT and other drug teams in the state are seeing in our region. This fentanyl is often referred to as “rainbow fetty.” Fentanyl is a highly powerful synthetic opioid which has resulted in a significant increase in overdose cases in our community. 

This investigation is ongoing, and no further details will be released at this time. 

DINT was assisted by the Roseburg Police Department. 

The Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team (DINT) is a multi-jurisdictional narcotics task force that identifies, disrupts, and dismantles local, multi-state, and international drug trafficking organizations using an intelligence-driven, multi-agency prosecutor-supported approach. DINT is supported by the Oregon-Idaho High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) which is composed of members from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Roseburg Police Department, Oregon State Police, Burau of Land Management, and the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office. 

The Oregon-Idaho HIDTA program is an Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) sponsored counterdrug grant program that coordinates with and provides funding resources to multi-agency drug enforcement initiatives, including the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team.
