OSP: Traffic stop nets 3 lbs. meth, 1 lb. heroin
DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. -- An Oregon State Police traffic stop on Saturday led to the arrest of two men, along with the seizure of meth and heroin, according to authorities.
Officials with OSP say that at about 2:30 p.m., a trooper stopped a GMC Sierra pickup on Interstate 5 near milepost 115 northbound for a traffic violation.
Officials say two men were in the pickup, identified as Feliciano Ayala-Cardenas, 31, from San Jose, California, and his passenger, Sergio Gustazo Pineda-Villanueva, 23, from Aloha, Oregon.
Authorities say that a subsequent investigation led to the discovery of about 3.5 pounds of meth and one pound of heroin that was allegedly concealed in the vehicle. Authorities say the street value of the drugs is around $66,000.
Troopers took both men into custody, and they were lodged in the Douglas County Jail. Both were charged with unlawful possession and delivery of methamphetamine and heroin.
OSP says both men are also under an Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) hold.
