Two Idaho men were arrested last Wednesday when an Oregon State Police (OSP) traffic stop in the Lakeview area led troopers to discover over 3 pounds of marijuana concealed in their pickup. OSP Drug Enforcement Section detectives are continuing the investigation.
According to OSP Sergeant Steve Yates, on December 22, 2010 at about 3:45 p.m. an OSP trooper stopped a 1995 Ford pickup displaying Idaho license plates northbound on South F Street in Lakeview for a lane use violation. The two occupants were identified as driver BRIAN WAYNE DECKER, age 27, and passenger AKIDO BASHAUN SHEARD, age 31, both from Boise, Idaho.
Subsequent investigation during the traffic stop led to the discovery of approximately 3.2 pounds of marijuana concealed in a bucket and bag in the rear seat area of the pickup. Estimated value of the seized marijuana is $8,500.
Both men were arrested and lodged in the Lake County Jail for Unlawful Possession and Delivery of a Controlled Substance – Marijuana.
OSP troopers were assisted at the scene by Lakeview Police Department.
