An Oregon State Police (OSP) traffic stop early Thursday morning south of Wilsonville led to the arrest of a wanted California man and the seizure of over 4,800 OxyContin pills concealed in the vehicle. The OSP Drug Enforcement Section is continuing the investigation.
On April 12, 2012 at approximately 12:30 a.m. an OSP senior trooper stopped a 2011 Chrysler van displaying Washington license plates northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 280 for a traffic violation. The van was driven by LESLIE DAVID DUNBAR, age 40, from Rodeo, California. He was accompanied by his 30-year old wife and two daughters, age 9 and 4. During the traffic stop OSP learned LESLIE DUNBAR was wanted out of California on a felony warrant charging Larceny.
Subsequent investigation with the assistance of a Clackamas County Sheriff's Office drug detection canine led to the discovery of a half ounce of marijuana and over 4,800 OxyContin pills concealed inside the van. Estimated value of the seized OxyContin pills is over $140,000.
LESLIE DUNBAR was lodged in the Clackamas County Jail on the following charges:
  • Fugitive From Justice (California felony warrant)
  • Unlawful Possession and Distribution of a Controlled Substance - OxyContin
  • Child Neglect in the First Degree (2 counts)
His wife was not arrested and the children were released to her custody.
