From Oregon State Police

Two Siletz residents have been arrested in connection with a traffic stop by Idaho State Police which linked them to a marijuana distribution network originating in Oregon with large quantities destined for Texas.

Local and state drug investigators became involved after two male subjects were stopped by Idaho State Police just over the Oregon border and were found to be carrying over 30 pounds of marijuana. The investigation led to a search warrant being served at 485 Fred Taylor Road in Siletz, where the marijuana originated.

At the Fred Taylor Road residence investigators seized approximately 46 ounces of marijuana, two firearms, a Hash Oil lab, and other evidence related to the distribution of marijuana. Detectives learned that large quantities of marijuana were collected from several medical marijuana locations in Lincoln and Lane counties for shipment both by courier and through UPS and FedEx. At the time of serving the search warrant, a 7-year old boy was in the residence along with three adults.

Arrested and booked into the Lincoln County Jail:

JONATHAN CHARLES OWENS, age 27
* Unlawful Manufacturer, Delivery and Possession of a Controlled Substance – Marijuana
* Felon in Possession of a Firearm
* Child Neglect in the First Degree

JUSTINA FAY REDFEARN, age 25
* Unlawful Delivery and Possession of a Controlled Substance – Marijuana
* Child Neglect in the First Degree

Meanwhile, a FedEx package addressed to the Siletz-area residence was intercepted. After obtaining a search warrant, the package was inspected by detectives and found to contain a large amount of currency that was seized as part of the investigation.

Detectives predict there will be more arrests.
