Four people were arrested last week by the Lincoln Interagency Narcotics Team (LINT) on numerous charges following execution of a search warrant in Waldport.
 
On July 28, 2011, LINT detectives with the assistance of Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, Lincoln City Police Department, Newport Police Department Canine Unit, Lincoln Community Corrections and Oregon State Police served a search warrant in a residential area at two addresses located at 1055 and 1065 NE Mill Street in Waldport.
 
Subsequent search led to the seizure of approximately 20 grams of methamphetamine packaged for sale, marijuana, a loaded handgun, other evidence and stolen property from three area burglaries. Detectives also found a surveillance system, blasting caps, detonation cord, and metal containers suspected of being modified to accept components of a destructive device. The OSP Explosives Unit had to respond to investigate and remove the components of a suspected destructive device.
 
Four people were arrested and lodged at the Lincoln County Jail:
