A several-month long investigation by narcotics detectives from interagency teams in Lincoln and Tillamook counties led to the arrest Wednesday of five people allegedly involved in the distribution of methamphetamine and marijuana in both counties.
 
On December 7, 2011 the Lincoln Interagency Narcotics Team (LINT) and Tillamook County Narcotics Team (TNT) served two search warrants at 3280 Salmon River Highway in Otis, and at 6955 Salal Avenue in Gleneden Beach.

The search of the Otis-area residence resulted in detectives seizing nearly one pound of methamphetamine, more than 130 marijuana plants, several pounds of dried marijuana, and other related evidence. Detectives also arrested and lodged in the Lincoln County Jail three individuals identified as:
