Long running investigation on burglary and drug trade produces results for Lincoln County investigators

Earl Marsh, 31

In July of 2012, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy David Hawley was dispatched to a burglary complaint which occurred on N. Panther Creek Road of Otis. The deputy responded to the scene and initiated an investigation. During the months following, suspect and lead information was developed.

On October 19th deputies with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office executed two search warrants at separate residences in the Otis area. During the searches deputies recovered several thousand dollars worth of stolen property, methamphetamine and over two pounds of marijuana packaged for sale. Some of the recovered property was linked to several thefts and burglaries that occurred in Tillamook County.

At one of the residences, deputies arrested John W. Heyne, 51 years of age, and Peggy Anne Heyne, 63 years of age, both from Otis. They were charged with Unlawful Manufacture of Marijuana, Unlawful Delivery of Marijuana and Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine. John and Peggy Heyne were lodged at the Lincoln County Jail. They are currently out on bail.

On October 23 Deputy Hawley contacted Keith V. Pratt, 18 years of age of Otis at a residence on N. Bear Creek Rd. From information developed during the investigation, Pratt was taken into custody and charged with Burglary II and Theft I. Pratt was lodged at the Lincoln County Jail with a bail of $50,000.00.

On November 27th the Lincoln County District Attorney’s Office brought the case before a Grand Jury and received indictments for Earl A. Marsh, 31 years of age from Otis, for the following charges: three counts of Theft in the first degree, Theft in the second degree and two counts of Obliteration/Change of identification number on firearm. At the time, Marsh was already in custody at the Lincoln County Jail on unrelated charges and held without bail.

The investigation of this case is continuing with additional arrests and criminal charges expected.

     

Columbia Gorge resident overcome by heavy surf near Manzanita

A novice surfer from Corbett was overcome by heavy surf off Oswald West State Park near Manzanita on Saturday. Oregon State Police say Duncan McCowen, 43, was surfing with others offshore at Short Sands Beach when they noticed his surfboard rolling and flipping in the waves. Troopers say when other surfers got to him he was unconscious. Once ashore they applied CPR until an ambulance arrived and its crew took over. McCowen was rushed to Tillamook County Hospital but attempts to revive him there failed as well. He was pronounced deceased a short time later.

Surf has been running very high and rough along the Oregon Coast, the same ocean conditions that overturned a crab boat near the mouth of the Yaquina River off Newport that threw three fishermen into the water. A Corvallis surfer paddled over and kept them afloat until a Coast Guard rescue crew arrived on scene, plucked them from the water and returned them to shore.
