Redmond, OR and Sister, OR-

Yesterday, a father and son were both arrested for distributing illegal narcotics in Central Oregon. 

This was the result of a longer-term investigation by the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team and was concluded when drug agents executed search warrants at two different locations in Redmond, Oregon and Sisters, Oregon.  One search warrant was served in the 3000 block of Obsidian Place in Redmond, Oregon and the second search warrant was served in the 7000 block of Holmes Road in Sisters, OR.

On Nov. 13th, 2023, the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team, in collaboration with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, Bend Police Department, Redmond Police Department, and the Deschutes County Illicit Marijuana Enforcement Team concluded a long-term investigation and surveillance operation with the arrest of both David Hanegraaf Jr. and David Hanegraaf Sr.

During the past couple months, drug agents identified both David Hanegraaf Jr. and David Hanegraaf Sr. as fentanyl traffickers in the central Oregon area. The investigation alleges that both David Hanegraaf Jr. and David Hanegraaf Sr. possessed and distributed large quantities of fentanyl in central Oregon. 

After a surveillance operation, both David Hanegraaf Jr. and David Hanegraaf Sr. were contacted in or near vehicles as they left their residences.  Both were arrested and then search warrants were served at both of their homes.

A subsequent search of David Hanegraaf Sr.’s home was conducted, and detectives located a commercial quantity of fentanyl, cocaine, and psilocybin mushrooms, also located were multiple firearms and U.S. currency.

Detectives also dismantled a large commercial marijuana grow and a BHO extraction laboratory. The investigation revealed that Hanegraaf Sr. was growing marijuana and selling the processed marijuana by shipping it around the United States.  

A subsequent search of David Hanegraaf Jr.’s person was conducted, and detectives located fentanyl powder, packaging material, and U.S. currency.  There was additional evidence of drug distribution located at his residence.

William Pelham was living on David Hanegraaf Sr.’s property in a class A motorhome tending to the marijuana grow at the location.  The investigation revealed he was in possession of a rifle, and he is a convicted felon. 

William Pelham, David Hanegraaf Jr. and David Hanegraaf Sr. were lodged at the Deschutes County Adult Jail on the above listed charges. Additional charges may be filed in this case as the investigation is ongoing.

Criminal complaints contain only charges; defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
