Two people were arrested Tuesday on outstanding arrest warrants and drug-related charges by the Lincoln Interagency Narcotics Team (LINT) after a search warrant was served at a Newport-area motel.

On September 3, 2013, LINT detectives, with the assistance of officers and a K-9 unit from Newport Police Department (NPD) and troopers from Oregon State Police (OSP), served a search warrant at the Money Saver Motel in Newport. The investigation began when NPD received information that a wanted person, NATASHA ASHLEY SCOTT, age 26, was staying at the motel. LINT surveillance confirmed SCOTT was at the motel and when officers served the search warrant they arrested SCOTT and ANTHONY CORNELL SINIBALDI, age 31, who was also in the room and wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant.

While in the room, officers saw evidence of drug sales activity. A subsequent secondary search after obtaining another search warrant led to the seizure of methamphetamine, other drug-related evidence, and several items of identification reported stolen from the Salem-area.

SCOTT and SINIBALDI were transported to the Lincoln County Jail and lodged. While SINIBALDI was being processed at the jail, corrections deputies found near a quarter ounce of additional methamphetamine concealed on him. Both were lodged at the jail on the following charges:

* Unlawful Manufacture, Possession, & Delivery of a Controlled Substance - Methamphetamine
* Frequenting/Maintaining a Place Where Controlled Substances are Kept or Used
* Warrant - Parole Violation

* Unlawful Manufacture, Possession, & Delivery of a Controlled Substance - Methamphetamine
* Supplying Contraband
* Warrant - Parole Violation

The LINT team is comprised of members from Oregon State Police, Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, Newport Police Department, and Lincoln County District Attorney's Office, and Lincoln City Police Department. LINT urges the public if they have any information about this case or other illegal drug-related activity to call (541) 265-8101.
