News Release
Portland Police Bureau Central Precinct Drug Mission Results in Seizure of Heroin, Methamphetamine, Cocaine and Gun (Photo) - 06/08/18

From Tuesday, June 5 to Thursday June 7, 2018, the Portland Police Bureau Central and North Precinct Street Crimes Units and Transit Division conducted a mission focussed on street-level illegal drug dealing in Old Town/ Chinatown and the South Park blocks.

This mission was conducted jointly with the Portland Police Bureau and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS). The partnership between the Police Bureau and the NCIS on drug missions during the Rose Festival's Fleet Week has occurred for the preceding 11 years. This mission is similar to enforcement missions that target illegal drug sales in San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and New York, in which NCIS partners with the respective local law enforcement agencies.

Illegal narcotics seized during the investigation included:
* 46.01 grams of heroin,
* 1.21 grams of cocaine, and
* 7.19 grams of methamphetamine.

There was also one firearm and $3,721.00 in cash seized during the three day period.

During this mission, 55 people were arrested:
* 25 people had outstanding warrants,
* 45 people were charged with new crimes,
* Three people were cited and released.

"Removing 46 grams of heroin from the streets of Portland makes our community a safer place for our neighbors, loved ones, and those visiting the city for the Rose Festival," said Chief Danielle Outlaw. "The Police Bureau is dedicated to connecting those impacted by drug addiction with programs, such as the Portland Police Bureau's Service Coordination Team, which provides supportive housing, drug and alcohol addiction treatment, and job skills training in an effort to end recidivism in the criminal justice system."
