For the second time in the last two months, an investigation by the Lincoln County Narcotics Team (LINT), with the assistance of the Oregon State Police (OSP) and OSP SWAT team, led to the same Lincoln City residence and the execution of a search warrant last Friday. Two people were arrested following the several months-long investigation that included purchases of methamphetamine from the residence near the local high school.
 
On November 18, 2011 at approximately 5:00 a.m., OSP SWAT team executed a search warrant at 3560 SE Fleet Avenue in Lincoln City. After safely securing the residence where two occupants were contacted, LINT detectives searched and seized a quantity of methamphetamine and other related evidence. Two stolen late model Honda motorcycles were also found and will be eventually returned to their owners.
 
The two individuals at the residence were taken into custody and lodged at the Lincoln County Jail on the following charges:
