From Lincoln City Police Lt. Jerry Palmer
Early Friday morning Lincoln City Police with the assistance of Oregon State Police SWAT and the Lincoln Interagency Narcotics Team (LINT), served a search warrant at 3037 NW Quay in Lincoln City. The search was conducted in an attempt to arrest two men suspected of felony assault and drug trafficking.
The State Police SWAT team surrounded the residence and attempted to call the suspects out of the residence. Two adult females, and adult male and three children were escorted from the home, questioned and released.
After the suspects did not respond to being called out, SWAT deployed diversionary explosions and gas charges into the home. Evidence of the assault and drug trafficking was recovered from the residence. One of the male suspect Samuel Fajardo, age 23, was arrested at the scene and charged with Assault II, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Manufacture of a Controlled Substance, Delivery of Controlled Substance, Possession of Controlled Substance Methamphetamine and Heroin, Child Neglect I, and Felon in Possession of Body Armor.
The other male suspect Selvin Fajardo, age 21, is still at large. The Lincoln City Police are asking anyone who has information as to Selvin Fajardo’s location to please call the police department at 541-994-3636.
